Summer Camps are FUN !

Our facility is divided in two separate rooms, one for younger kids and one for older kids. They will interact at some point in the day, but most of the time will be spent with their own age group.
Each session is a 5 day program. Children will learn many things related to rock climbing and nature. They will also learn how to plan and approach an outdoor trip, how to pack and how to set a tent.  In addition, there will be games and crafts if time permits, but mainly they will discover the safety and the beauty of rock climbing. Children must bring their own lunch. Snacks and drinks are available on site.


Our staff is contracted according to enrollment. If you are registering your child for two weeks, a $100.00 deposit is due with the registration. The remaining balance must be paid by the first day of each week your child attends. We are unable to make refunds if your child gets sick or if you change plans. Camp is subject to cancellation due to insufficient enrollment. Full refunds will be given.
Minimum 10 campers/session
Maximum 20 campers/session
