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.
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 and single day options available.
About Our Camps
Base Camp (Ages 6–9)
Learn the basics of indoor rock climbing. No experience is necessary. Activities include cooperative group games, top rope climbing, knot tying, rappelling and daily climbing games.
