Climbing and Adventure Camp - Introductory

$595Purchase required to enroll
Climbing is natural - this does not mean that it always comes naturally, good technique is critical to success. Our instructors break down climbing movements to it's critical components and we use enthusiasm and encouragement to help participants succeed.

The Introductory Camps focus on the basics of climbing movement and equipment - knots, harnesses and belay device nomenclature, usage, and techniques.

The ratio of participants to instructors are kept to a low ratio of 4:1 so that all participants receive plenty of individual attention and are able to progress at their own pace.

We'll start off the week going over the fundementals and climb indoors at the Inner Wall, in New Paltz. The rest of the week will include as much rock climbing as possible, but allowing one day for a hike and some swimming at the beach (only when a life guard is on duty) at Lake Minnewaska. The schedule of activites will fluctuate to take the most advantage of the weather. Rainy day activities can include; rappelling, hiking, navigation, or indoor climbing.
