We know the value of a smile at the end of the day. It’s a small reminder of why we teach kids climbing.
It’s because learning to climb is fun, and because it encourages learning general life skills that can be applied every day.
Our climbing camp doesn’t set out to make kids all-star rock climbers but rather, through climbing, helps kids find ways to…
Make good decisions
Act as team players
Learn respect for others
Enjoy physical recreation and the outdoors, and
Do something healthy for their growing bodies
Rise Up’s five-day camp introduces children to rock climbing,. The camp takes place at our indoor facility where we spend all five camp days. The gym allows us to control the climate and the climbing thereby enhancing the learning atmosphere and ensuring that each child receives all the attention, guidance, and instruction they need.
A brief look at the week’s exciting activities for campers:
Participate in group team-building games to encourage trust
Identify each child’s needs and goals
Instruction in the basic skills of top roping
How to contact, the climbing surface
Learn movement skills used for climbing
