Our Summer Climbing Camps offer children ages 6 to 16 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.
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 experience for each camper and help them to achieve personal goals in a supportive and controlled environment.
Vertical Endeavors offers a variety of camp programs during various breaks from school as well as different “teacher in-service” and “conference” days. Check out our postings within the website or visit Vertical Endeavors for a brochure containing upcoming programs.
Note: During this program, children (under the age of the 14) may belay for each other at the instructor’s discretion. Youth may also be required to use a backup belayer at the instructor’s discretion.
