Rock Climbing Camps

 
 

Rock Climbing Camp is great way to gain confidence in an exhilarating activity.

 

Rock Climbing Camp: Ages 8-11

Campers will learn belay commands, belay technique, back-up belay procedures, climbing technique and proper care for climbing equipment. We begin our week with belay school at our ropes course, located at the Strawberry Canyon Recreation Area, and then spend the rest of the week climbing at rock faces in the Berkeley Hills. Transportation to and from the sites is provided, as well as all necessary climbing gear.
 

Ages & Eligibility

Campers must be ages 8-11 (by December 1 of the year preceding the current camp season) in order to register for this camp.

Price: $250
