Plan a fantastic summer experience for your child at Central Rock Gym! Striving to create a safe and fun climbing environment for all skill levels, our weeklong youth vacation programs offer new climbers a great introduction to the sport and returning climbers a great way to further their climbing experience.
The program runs from 9am to 2pm, Monday through Friday all summer long and extended day options are available! Registration for summer 2018 is open!

Please contact Cristi at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
During our fun-filled, week-long summer program sessions kids (ages 6-13) will stay active by experimenting with different types of climbing as well as engaging in exciting games and activities, such as the “Flying Squirrel” and “The Giant’s Ladder.” While focusing on creating a safe and fun environment, we emphasize problem solving and team building initiatives, both of which come naturally in the sport of rock climbing. Kids will also learn how to belay (age permitting), allowing them to experience yet another perspective of the sport. All participants are guaranteed to have fun, make friends, become stronger climbers, and break personal barriers, all while under the supervision of our specially trained staff.
