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.

Reserve a spot for the climber in your life with just a $50 deposit today!

Want to sign your climber up but have a busy work schedule? No problem! Sign your climber up for our "Summer Camp Transportation" option, and two of our coaches will ride around Rapid City gathering kids for camp. We will drop off at a location of your choosing--could be the same as the pick up location or a different one!
