Our weeklong expedition is built for campers with climbing experience* excited about advancing their skills in authentic settings where campers will spend their days climbing and their nights camping under the stars.
In a group of no more than 13 campers and up to three experienced staffers, climbers will explore a range of Staunton’s engaging, challenging routes. They’ll break into small climbing teams to get comfortable with their equipment, practice climbing and bouldering techniques and try out different roles within their team. They’ll also build camping skills as they learn the basics of camp cooking and sleeping outdoors.
For one day campers will trade in their climbing shoes for watershoes for a day of working on their teambuilding while enjoying rafting class I-III rapids.
It’s a week of authentic adventure at its best, one that leaves campers with solid skills, lasting friendships and a renewed appreciation for being active outdoors.
Immersed in Colorado’s Staunton State Park, the park’s natural beauty—lush meadows, alpine forests, pristine ponds, soaring cliffs—are the perfect backdrop of empowering outdoor adventures. Campers also take a day away from climbing to raft through Clear Creek Canyon.
* While beginning rock climbers are welcome, participants must have some experience with climbing basics and should be excited to spend 4-6 hours rock climbing each day. Campers will likely be divided up by experience level during climbs.
