Climbing is a great activity that engages kids mentally and physically. It helps build confidence and problem solving skills. It requires focus, attention to detail, and for anyone living in Colorado it's something everyone should try.
Our climbing programs are focused on engaging kids on a deeper level beyond simply playing on the rocks. While every camp kids learn about climbing and the outdoors they also get to learn things about risk, self advocacy and awareness, that become a foundation for capable adults. Our focus is on helping develop both climbing and decision making skills for a lifetime of enjoying climbing and the outdoors.
With amazing locations it's a great opportunity to get a different perspective in local parks, meet new people, and become better climbers!
This program is geared towards kids 8-12 who enjoy climbing but maybe are just getting started or are more interested in hanging with their friends and enjoying the outdoors. During this camp participants will:
-enjoy local climbing areas while instructors introduce them to new skills like how to belay or tie into their harness.
-learn about plants and animals in Colorado.
-learn safety skills for being outdoors.
-learn how to be good stewards and etiquette for climbing outdoors.
-meet like minded kids and socialize with new people.
