Rock Climbing Camp: Scaling the Heights

Request Info


Our Rock Climbing Day Camp gets campers climbing, scaling some of Boulder’s most iconic formations and learning the rock climbing ropes. Supported by our top-notch instructors, campers master the basics of knot tying, belaying, rappelling and climbing as they ascend a range of routes and rock types.

Campers take on activities designed just for them in teams grouped by grade—2nd – 4th graders make up our Skills Camp, while 5th – 7th graders join the Adventure Team—broadening their technical skills and conquering more challenging climbs as they gain comfort and competence.

Rock Climbing campers ideally should have experienced climbing before — on a rock wall, climbing gym, or even on natural rock. Although there are no prerequisite skills or experience needed, kids should have a desire to climb and learn more. Learn about our Pin Program!

Climbing & Bouldering Technique
Equipment Practice
Authentic Climbing

Campers hone their climbing skills through bouldering practice, learning the ins and outs of climbing safety and ethics, climbing commands, proper spotting, hazard identification and footwork and body positioning techniques.

Campers get comfortable with their carabiners, stoppers, camalots and belay devices as they practice equipment setup, traditional gear placement, identifying natural anchors, tying knots and using their helmets and harnesses at local crags.

Every day, we take campers out to climb at some of Boulder’s best crags, tackling a range of rock types, styles and levels of difficulty at world-renowned sites including Crown Rock, The Amphitheatre, Elephant Buttress, and Gregory Canyon.

Meet Your Camp Director,  Keagan French

Keagan loves working for Avid4 Adventure because he believes that spending time in the outdoors is not only fun, but vital for a happy, healthy life.  He was lucky enough to grow up exploring the outdoors most of his life and wants to introduce that lifestyle to as many kids as possible.

Keagan holds a Bachelor in Social Work from SUNY Plattsburgh and has worked as an outdoor leader in an adventure-based counseling program, a snowboard instructor at Bristol Mountain and Arapahoe Basin, a professional slackliner at Slackline Industries, and at Powder7 Ski Shop. Keagan is also a certified Wilderness First Responder.

Keagan’s favorite part of Avid4 Adventure is supporting kids to have unique and authentic adventures.  He is no stranger to unique adventures, having highlined and slacklined all over the country, traveled to 48 states and over 15 countries, and snowboarded all winter for 20 years. When Keagan isn’t on a slackline or snowboard, you can find him enjoying a good breakfast burrito, playing music, or riding his horse.

While no outdoor adventure is totally risk-free, we work hard to keep your kids safe. Every activity starts with a discussion about the risks involved—what they are, how to prevent them, how to respond if something goes wrong—so kids learn how to approach challenges with intelligence and skill.
