An affordable way for your kids to have some fun while you get things done! The cost includes four days of climbing on Thursdays only. Our first four week camp will be on Thursdays between June 16 - July 7. The second four week camp will be on Thursdays between July 14 - August 4! Drop-off will be at 8AM and pickup will be at 1PM at Donner Summit.

The first couple of weeks will start with the basics, although the campers will be progressing toward more challenging rock climbing each week. Each day will include various options and levels of difficulty so that each participant can choose climbs that are appropriate for their skill level. Your instructor will be trained through the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA).

Skills covered will include: 

  • Knots
  • Belaying
  • Rock Climbing Movement
  • Rappelling (assisted)

Requisite Experience

No previous climbing experience is required. We will work with each participant based off their prior skill level or lack thereof! This camp is for teens aged 14-18!

Rentals Available! 

We do have harnesses, helmets, and climbing shoes available for rent! It is recommended that they arrive with their own gear though, as they will be using it a lot!

Other Options

If you have a group of teens or other days of the week that would work better for you, please contact us and we can set something up!
