Participants who are in the younger camp from 9am-12pm will need to bring a snack, a water bottle and comfy clothes to climb in.
Participants who are in the older camp from 9am-2pm will need to bring lunch, snacks, a water bottle, and comfy clothes to climb in.
For both camps, children are welcome to bring their own climbing equipment if they have it, but shoes, harnesses, and chalk will be provided to participants free of charge if they do not.
Participants who are in the younger camp from 9am-12pm will need to bring their own snack.
Participants who are in the older camp from 9am-2pm will need to bring both a lunch and extra snacks.
Depending on weather, we will have children either eating outside in our courtyard space facing Jefferson Ave, or in our downstairs youth party room.
Children will not be permitted to leave the building unless signed out by a parent, or when having lunch outside in our courtyard space accompanied by our youth instructors.
Our camps have a minimum capacity of 4 participants and a maximum capacity of 8 participants. We are operating with a protocol of pairing 1 instructor to every 4 children. Camps will not run if there are less than 4 kids enrolled. Associated fees will get refunded.
While our camps will be largely focused on learning new climbing skills, we will break up our climbing times with stretching and other games and activities. We will also have structured times for drawing and other crafts for kids to have restful breaks from climbing as well.
Parents can authorize unchaperoned drop offs and/or pick ups. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to help document this arrangement.
