AMG Camp- Rock Pro 1 and 2- New Hampshire

Rock Pro I and II Climbing Camp

This is the start of a series of progressive camps that Acadia Mountain Guides teaches. The ultimate goal is for a camper over time to become a competent climber that is lead climbing. 

 Who’s it for? A climber age 13-18. Someone just getting into rock climbing or just starting to progress their skills. 

 Where do we go? Acadia National Park 

Ages: 13-18

 Locations: Acadia National Park, Clifton, Camden, New Hampshire

 Camper to Leader Ratio: 6:1

RockPro Climbing Camp is for teens who want to rock climb and explore the mountains and coastal cliffs of Acadia. The course is appropriate for those who are excited to learn but new to climbing or who have some climbing experience such as at a climbing gym or perhaps outside a few times.

Campers will begin roped climbing right away on day 1 while being belayed by skilled instructors.Campers will also learn the how to’s of belaying and rappelling. After gaining comfort on easier climbs, campers will have plenty of opportunity to challenge themselves on a variety of routes throughout the week and work on improving their techniques for climbing slabs, faces and cracks. As the week progresses, participants will learn important knots and how to belay their peers.

Taking a break from vertical climbing for a day or two during the week, RockPro I participants will also get to hike to a variety of mountain summits in Acadia National Park.

The Acadia Mountain Guides camp curriculum is laid out to allow you time to really learn and develop the skills needed to be a smart and competent climber. We believe that building a solid foundation of basic climbing skills is critically important to the development of young climbers and their appreciation and understanding of climbing. And of course this also translates into taking responsibility for your peers and learning to trust others in all aspects of life.

Sample Rock Pro I/II Itinerary in New Hampshire


Day 1: Eastern Slope Campground: Introductory activities, introduction to climbing equipment, refine basic skills such as harness and knots, principles of climbing movement, and top roping skills on low angled rock slabs. Camp at Eastern Slope Campground. 


Day 2: It's a Square Ledge Party!  Face and crack climbing with an emphasis on balance, body awareness, weight transfer; introduction to rappelling. 


Day 3: It's a Whitehorse Ledge Party- hike to the climbing point and climb for half the day. Mini Ground School Lesson in Camp tonight.

Day 6: Echo Ledge- hike into climb and then do a Bridge Rappel before campers who are departing at 6pm leave.

We like to give our campers opportunity to decide on camp activities. Typically we spend at least two thirds of each day climbing and the remainder doing activities such as swimming, hiking, bouldering, etc. as desired by the group. It is our goal to send RockPro I campers home with basic technical competencies, an understanding of safe climbing techniques and a greater desire to climb more.
