Youth Program

Summer Camp - Ropes and Rocks

A fun-filled camp week featuring lots of climbing and outdoor adventure!

COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers course.

Ready to climb? Ready to swim, learn outdoor skills, and hike? Most importantly...are you ready to ROCK? Then this is the week of camp is for you!

Campers ages 6-12 are invited to join The Mountaineers for a week packed with traditional camp games, songs and a heavy dose of outdoor adventure. Each week consists of rock climbing, outdoor skills, crafts, and swimming. Additionally, every week has a field trip  and/or outdoor adventures relating to the given theme.

During Ropes and Rocks week, campers will have the opportunity to try a variety of climbing techniques including bouldering and top roping. The younger campers (ages 6-8) will take a field trip to Bridal Veil Falls on Wednesday.  The older campers (9+) will take a field trip to the outdoor climbing area at Exit 38 on Thursday. It'll be a great way to put together all the climbing skills they learn during the week.

New in 2022:  

Campers 8 years old and older are invited to join us for a Thursday night overnight lock in at the Program Center. Stick around after-hours to join us for extra climbing, dinner, a movie, and a sleepover in Goodman Auditorium.  Friday morning breakfast will also be provided. Spaces are limited!
