Rock Climbing Camps


Our Instruction is personalized and takes place predominately in small groups. We utilize a coaching and mentoring approach to teaching progressive climbing skills. Each student will be grouped based on age and climbing ability (i.e. beginner, intermediate, high intermediate, advanced). Parents are welcome to request that friends/siblings be grouped together. Each student will be assigned a climbing coach for the week who will provide ability appropriate instruction, feedback, and encouragement during each climbing session.
All group instructional will include:

• Climbing Safety and Risk Management
• Climbing and Bouldering Technique
• Belay Instruction
• Face and Crack Climbing Technique


1. Devotion/Metaphor, Overview, Goal Setting, and Warm-Up
2. Demonstration and modeling of climbing techniques
3. Drills and Games that reinforce progressive climbing techniques
4. Small Group Climbing with Coaches
5. Cool Down and Reflection
