Conquering a climbing wall evokes a real sense of accomplishment, and this is especially true for kids. Is it their burning desire to be Spiderman? The adrenaline rush that comes from defying gravity? Whatever the reason, people of all ages seem to love reaching heights far above the ground. Many of the instructors at Cliffhanger Climbing Gym are parents and as such they know how important it is to keep children and youth busy over summer break. Cliffhanger’s Kidrock climbing camp is designed for just this purpose.
Over the course of Cliffhanger’s week-long camp, kids aged 9 to 16 years (9 being the absolute minimum age) will hone climbing skills and become hooked on reaching the next finger-grab or toe-hold. Instructors will cover climbing safety, equipment use, belaying (technical rope work), knot-tying, stretching, and movements.
The team at Cliffhanger has been sharing their philosophy – strengthen your body, free your mind – with climbing enthusiasts since 1993. Their facility boasts over 15,000 square feet of climbing terrain with 53 top ropes, lead climbing, crack climbing, professional route setting, and a separate level for bouldering.
Children who attend Kidrock should wear comfortable clothes, and pack a healthy and filling lunch along with water to stay hydrated. You can click here to register online.
