Rock Climbing Camp Boulder South - 2nd to 7th Grade - Day Camps

Our Rock Climbing Summer Camps teach campers climbing on some of the most iconic formations in the area. Supported by our top-notch instructors, campers learn the basics of climbing, knot tying, belaying, and rappelling as they ascend a variety of routes and rock types.

Campers take on activities designed just for them in teams grouped by grade — 2nd – 4th graders or 5th – 7th graders — broadening their technical skills and conquering more challenging climbs as they gain comfort and competence.

Although there are no prerequisite skills or experience needed, rock climbing campers should have a desire to climb and learn more.

Climbing & Bouldering Technique

Equipment Practice

Authentic Climbing

Campers hone their climbing skills through bouldering practice, learning the ins and outs of climbing safety and ethics, climbing commands, proper spotting, hazard identification and footwork and body positioning techniques.

Campers get comfortable with carabiners, stoppers, camalots and belay devices as they practice equipment setup and traditional gear placement. They’ll identify natural anchors and perfect their knots at local crags.

Every day, we take campers out to climb at some of the area’s best crags, tackling a range of rock types, styles and levels of difficulty.

Why Sign Up For Multiple Sessions?

Based on our experience (and a bunch of brain science), we know that multiple sessions of Avid camp will benefit your child – it will result in greater skill development, increased self-confidence, higher levels of risk assessment/environmental awareness, and an improved ability to connect socially with others and make new friends.


While no outdoor adventure is totally risk-free, we work hard to keep your kids safe. Every activity starts with a discussion about the risks involved -- what they are, how to prevent them, how to respond if something goes wrong -- so kids learn how to approach challenges with intelligence and skill.
