Registration for 2024 season opens in December

Summer Camps

A fun, kid centered summer camp designed with your kid in mind.  We will spend lots of time climbing--including playing climbing games, learning new skills, and having plenty of time for self exploration on the wall. And because every climber needs a break, every day will include healthy snacks and a new craft!

Join our experienced kids & youth coaches climbing, playing games, and doing arts and crafts Monday-Thursday. The week leads up to Friday when we will climb outside in beautiful Custer State Park.

My mom puts me in a lot of summer camps. The one at Basecamp was the one I was most excited to go back to!
