Rock Dimensions Offers Climbing Adventure Day Camps for Kids and Teens, Beginners and Intermediates

May 17, 2012. Once again for summer 2012, Rock Dimensions Climbing Guides is offering outdoor adventure day camps for kids and teens. The Climbing & Adventure Camp for ages 8 and up is designed to give participants an opportunity to experience a variety of land-based activities unique to our area.

Meeting each morning at Rock Dimensions’ location in downtown Boone, the camp includes climbing on the outdoor climbing tower at Footsloggers, climbing out on real rock in several different areas of the High Country, rappelling, caving and a ropes/challenge course & zipline excursion.

Small group sizes, individualized challenges and engaging activities are part of what makes Rock Dimensions’ summer camps memorable and rewarding for campers. Summer 2012 has three sessions of camp: June 25-29, July 16-20, and July 30-August 3. Cost is $475 for the full week. Partial week options are available at a pro-rated cost.

New for this summer is the Intermediate Climbing Camp for ages 11 and older. This four-day camp is for kids and teens who have a little more experience climbing outdoors. Campers will experience a variety of climbing styles, including toproping, traditional single-pitch, multi-pitch, bouldering and sport climbing. The camp will follow a progression of skills, designed to be flexible and allow for more individualized instruction. Small instructor to camper ratios help to make the camp appropriately challenging. Summer 2012 has two sessions: June 19-22 and July 23-26.

Campers bring their own lunch, water, snacks and clothing/footwear appropriate for the activity. Transportation and all climbing/caving/challenge course equipment are provided. Times are 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. for both camps. Participants will meet at the Footsloggers Climbing Tower in downtown Boone each day.
