The Young Explorer’s Rock Star Camp is a unique opportunity for 9 – 12 year olds to who like to rock climb to immerse themselves in a focused climbing camp. A great week of focused climbing activity that is sure to raise your climbing skill level in a major way.

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.
