Camp Terrier – Sports & Recreation: Climbing Focus

Ages 7 – 13

Fees: Member – $499, Nonmember – $599

Rock climbing is a great developmental sport for kids, because it challenges the mind as well as the body. We have the perfect focus for those campers looking to improve their climbing skills. The morning activities will consist of gym games, such as Capture the Flag, followed by instructional swim lessons. The afternoon hours will focus on all aspects of climbing, including instruction for all levels and group climbing games. No prior climbing experience required.

All Sports & Recreation groups regardless of focus will participate in daily instructional swim, recreational swim and a variety of games and activities in the gym.
