Spot Summer Camps

HAVE FUN CLIMBING THIS SUMMER!

Here at The Spot we’ve learned at least one thing after a decade of hosting youth summer programs: it’s gotta be fun! So we focus on making sure your kids have a blast. Our instructors all have years of experience teaching youth programs in an encouraging environment while maintaining the highest standards of safety.

We offer these summer programs:

Summer Indoor Climbing Camp 2015

Register for Summer Indoor Climbing Camp 2015 here.

The Spot’s Summer Indoor Climbing Camp is a week-long day camp for kids that want to learn to climb or already love it. We’ll spend our time bouldering, top-roping, playing active games, team-building and slacklining, all in our well air-conditioned facility. There are no prerequisites and we welcome 6-12 year old kids of all abilities. A few details:

  • Each session runs for 5 days Monday through Friday
  • Held every week from June 1st through August 14th

Youth Club

The Spot’s Youth Club is our popular year-round, once-a-week after-school program for 7-12 year old climbers looking to explore the sport. This introductory program has less commitment but still plenty of opportunity to progress in climbing technique. Youth Club participants also get a full month membership, so they can return to climb as often as they want.

  • Each session runs one afternoon per week for a month
  • Held all year long
  • Choose Wed or Fri, 4:30pm-6:30pm
  • Cost: $125/month which includes a month membership and rental shoes
