Summer Camp Program Description
One session is available for younger climbers age 6-12. Includes some indoor climbing days to become familiar with climbing, and outdoor sessions on EASY cliffs ranging 25ft to 60ft. Counselors are on hand to facilitate all climbing. Campers age 11+ will learn the climber's knot and belay system.
Two sessions are available for climbers age 11-15. All days focus on outdoor climbing on cliffs up to 100+ft tall. Easy and hard climbing options are presented to the campers. Climbing indoors is available at the start and end of each day. In case of rain, climbing camp is held indoors. All participants learn the climber's knot, operation of the belay, and how to rappel.
One session is designated as TEEN WEEK. All days focus on outdoor climbing on cliffs up to 100+ft tall. Easy and hard climbing options are presented to the campers. Climbing indoors is available at the start and end of each day. In case of rain, climbing camp is held indoors. All participants learn the climber's knot, operation of the belay, and how to rappel.

One session is for apprentice lead climbing. Climbers age 15-18 will learn the basics of lead climbing outdoors. Lead climbing is an advanced form of climbing that requires a certain level of previous climbing experience. This session has a max of 3 climbers. Anyone interested in signing up for the apprentice lead session will need to provide a climbing resume to be reviewed by our professional rock guides. In case of rain, climbing camp will be held indoors.
Teenagers have the option of joining one of two over-night trips to Clifton Maine. We set up a base camp at Parks Pond Campground then launch day trips to various cliffs up to 500ft tall. Hot showers and flushing toilets are available at camp.
