Five days of vertical fun, challenge and learning. This camp is for the young explorer who has taken an interest in rock climbing and likes to get off the ground. The Rock Star’s Climbing Camp is a unique opportunity for 9 – 12 year olds to who like to rock climb to immerse themselves in a focused climbing camp. Campers may choose either a day camp or overnight camp format. Besides getting a lot of time on the rock, campers will learn important rope skills like knots, belaying and rappelling. Emphasis will be on individual, partner and group safety throughout the week.
When the body tires of climbing there will be time for swimming, hiking and learning outdoor skills such as animal tracking or map and compass skills.
A great week of focused climbing activity that is sure to raise your climbing skill level in a major way. No previous experience is necessary. Climbing gear is provided. Limit: 12.
Rainy day options
Generally we try to proceed with planned activities for the day unless there is a lightning danger or a major storm. Should weather preclude continuing with the day’s activities we can visit the climbing wall and swimming pool at the local YMCA or spend a few hours indoors bowling.
Campers will sleep in tents separated by gender. We stay in public campgrounds such as Bar Harbor Campground, Park’s Pond Campground, and Camden Hills State Park. Campgrounds have a bath and shower facilities.
Overnight campers join the leaders in preparing delicious, healthy camp meals. Vegetarian options are available as. Sample evening meals include pasta with sauce and salad, vegetable stir fry w/ chicken side.
Rock Star day campers should bring easy to eat lunches and drinks. Please try to package food and drinks in non-breakable containers.
