basecamp Kids 

Basecamp_Sticker2021-01 (1).png



Kids are natural climbers. Whether it's climbing trees, climbing your furniture, or channeling that energy into climbing at the gym, kids' strength-to-weight ratio and excitement to explore make them intuitive climbers.

At Basecamp, we encourage families to climb together. Family memberships are $150/month and save families money as more kids are added to the family.

Basecamp has a variety of programs and activities for kids to get more involved with climbing and hone their natural skills. With character development, community ethics, and climbing competencies at the core of our kids programs, Basecamp provides a holistic approach to kids & youth and climbing.

Want to try it out?  Join us for a day pass!  Did you know day passes are only $10 every Friday?!

Climbing teaches us about life. Whether it's learning to fall and get up again or encouraging those around you, every Basecamp coach incorporates character development into every program.

Community Ethics

Taking care of the crag, interacting with others at the gym, and ensuring access to climbing for future generations is the responsibility of everyone.  

Climbing Competency

Learning to climb efficiently and with proper technique will incentivize kids to keep climbing as long as they choose.


The first lesson of any class with anyone of any age is learning how to fall. While climbing will never be without risk, we teach kids to manage and minimize risk.
