Gunks Summer Kids Rock Climbing Camps

                LOGO08outlinesWhat a great way for your kids to enjoy the summer.  Mountain Skills Climbing Guides is offering summer climbing camps for kids between the ages of 11-17 years old.  Five days of climbing during the week at the Gunks for the price of $490.  We include the days fees for the kids in our day cost.  We meet at Rock and Snow at 9:00 am to go over waivers and to get climbing gear for the week. We provide all technical rock climbing equipment for the kids. Please have the kids bring food, water and a backpack for carrying there equipment. Sneakers are great for walking from cliff to cliff while out climbing. We will be at the cliff until 4 pm each day.

 We will be teaching the kids how to:

Rock climbing efficiently

Proper climbing technique

Belaying correctly

Lowering correctly

Learning safety commands

Rappelling

Tying important knots for climbing

Leave No Trace ethics for the outdoors

 Weather plays a large part in what cliff we choose to climb at for the day. We would like to take the kids to a different climbing area in the Gunks each day if it works out.

 

 

Climbers receive a 10% discount from Rock and Snow if you would like to purchase any equipment.
