The KMAC Youth Rock Climbing Camps are designed to make the connection and to bridge between indoor and outdoor climbing. Specifically, we aim to blend the best qualities of a traditional summer camp experience, the subtle observations and skills of a top-level indoor coach, and the risk management/technical skills of an AMGA certified mountain guide. Students will leave with a baseline of knowledge that will inform a lifetime of good decisions, not to mention they will have one of the best weeks of their lives.
Students sleep in tents at KMAC’s private 10 acre secluded base camp outside Estes Park bordering Rocky Mountain National Park. Participants need only provide their own personal clothing items, a sleeping bag and pad. You’ll receive an equipment list upon registering.
*Students should be in good physical shape and be able to carry a 30lb pack.
Note: For full immersion in the climbing camps we have scheduled them to run consecutively to allow for a full 2 week camp. Students do not need to have taken beginner camps to enroll in the intermediate or advanced camps.
