Adventure Rock’s Base Camp fills your child’s day with uplifting (pun intended) activities. Each week of camp includes instruction on auto-belay systems, basic and advanced skills, as well as learning about different climbing gear, snacks, and (wait for it…) lots of climbing. We also throw in a variety of games and activities for those moments during the week where a break from climbing is needed. Feel free to sign your child up for multiple weeks – this camp is designed to be enjoyed over and over again. Be sure to reserve your child’s spot in advance –our Base Camps are very popular and fill up quickly.

For some of the younger kids or first-time climbers, the full day camp may be a tad overwhelming- if that is the case for your youngster, check out our NEW HALF DAY ↓ camp option. No prerequisites.

What to expect:
At 9:00 am sharp on Monday, we’ll begin by explaining the Base Camp expectations and showing the campers around the gym to get them comfortable with Adventure Rock’s climbing areas. While at Base Camp, campers will learn basic climbing techniques and how to tie knots, plus they’ll get a ton of climbing experience. And since climbing can really wear you out, we’ve also scheduled time for snacks and games, some climbing related, some geared towards the energy of the group.

9-10: Partner Climbing / Activity / Skill learning
10-10:20: Morning snack
10:20-12: Partner Climbing/ Activity/ Skill learning

What to bring:
Rock climbing does not require any specific clothing – your child should just come dressed in clothes that are comfortable and easy to move around in. We provide all the climbing gear needed to have a great Base Camp experience. We also provide a snack in the morning and afternoon, but feel free to bring an extra! Lunch is not provided— please send your camper with a packed lunch. We provide a refrigerator where campers can store all lunches, snacks and beverages. We recommend that campers bring a water bottle as climbing can be a strenuous workout. Bottles of water, energy drinks and bars are also available for purchase in the Adventure Rock Pro Shop.

Finally, we ask that campers leave all electronics and toys at home! We promise they won’t be missed – time will fly by with all of the fun activities we have planned at Base Camp!

“Adventure Rock Climbing Gym’s summer Base Camp program is wonderful for both children and parents. The flexibility of choosing weeks based on my schedule and on my children’s interests is so nice. The trustworthy staff is wonderful, so no worries leaving my children at the gym for the day.The best part of camp, however, is bringing home two totally tuckered out kids.Children get their fill of climbing, crafts, games and teamwork, exercising both their brains and their bodies.”
