Campers may choose either a day camp or overnight camp format. Besides getting a lot of time on the rock, campers will learn important rope skills like knots, belaying and rappelling. Emphasis will be on individual, partner and group safety throughout the week.
When we aren't climbing there will be time for swimming, hiking and learning outdoor skills such as animal tracking or map and compass skills.
