Vertical Endeavors Climbing Camps offer children the opportunity to learn proper climbing techniques in a controlled and fun atmosphere. In addition to our focus on fun, all of our camps promote awareness and understanding. Choose between our Base Camp and Peak Experience for a fun and age-appropriate option for your child. Additionally, our camps are offered as week-long or single day sessions.

Our Camp Instructors

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.

Week-long camps

Week-long camps are offered in the summer between May-August. 

BASE CAMP (Ages 6–9)

Learn the basics of indoor rock climbing. No experience is necessary. Activities include cooperative group games, technique lessons, route reading basics, and a mock competition. In addition to our focus on fun, this camp promotes awareness and understanding of bouldering safety. Your child will leave camp with a sense of self-reliance and accomplishment, as well as a deeper respect for the sport of bouldering. The week will culminate with a pizza party. Bring a sack lunch and drink Monday through Thursday.

Week-Long: $375


Learn indoor rock climbing and belaying techniques and capitalize on any previous climbing experience you may have. Activities include knot tying and belay lessons, rappelling and using ascenders. This camp also includes daily technique and movement classes on a variety of topics. This program will teach you to bring your climbing skills to the next level.

Week-Long: $375
