We like keeping kids busy when they are out of school. Our day camps are the perfect way to keep your children active during various school breaks. Camp activities include top rope climbing, knot tying, and a variety of exciting climbing games.
In addition to their passion for climbing, all Vertical Endeavors instructors must go through an in-depth training program prior to instructing any of our day camp programs. Our instructors bring years of knowledge to the table in both the art of climbing movement and the technical know-how of rope and anchor systems. Above all, our instructors’ goal is to provide a fun, educational, and memorable summer camp for each camper and help them to achieve personal goals in a supportive and controlled environment.
Register your child today for these exciting day camps!
Base Camp (Ages 6–9)
Our Base Camp will introduce kids to the sport of climbing by teaching climbing basics. There is no experience necessary. We will cover risk management, knot tying, and an introduction to climbing routes. The campers will also improve their climbing skills and confidence through a variety of activities and games.
Peak Experience (Ages 10–13)
In Peak Experience we will explore more climbing techniques including: knot tying, belaying, ascending, and rappelling. The campers will learn to belay one another on the first day, which will allow them to more independently pursue individual climbing projects. They will leave with an increased confidence and a greater appreciation for the sport of rock climbing.
High Summit Adventure (Ages 13–16)
Learn fundamentals of advanced climbing and rope management skills that could be used in indoor or outdoor climbing, during rescues, or on longer climbs. Activities for this program include daily technique and movement classes designed to bring your climbing skills to the next level as well as a variety of mini-clinics meant to advance your rope management skills and your technical knowledge. Participants will experience lead climbing and lead belaying in either a simulated or real setting which will be determined by the climbing abilities of the overall group. The week will culminate in a vertical challenge course where the members of your group will put the skills you’ve learned throughout the week to use in this special group challenge. Bring a sack lunch and drink Monday through Thursday. A pizza party will take place on Friday.
