Central Rock Gym Watertown invites your children to participate in our Summer Camp! The program will run as week-long sessions all summer. Registration for summer 2018 is now open.
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 week-long youth vacation programs offer new climbers a great introduction to the sport and returning climbers a great way to further their climbing experience.
This camp must comply with regulations of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and be licensed by the local board of health.
During our fun-filled, week-long summer camp sessions, kids (ages 6-13) will stay active by experimenting with different types of climbing as well as engaging in exciting games and activities. 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. Our fun week of climbing concludes with a pizza party on the final day!
Please contact our Youth Programs Coordinator, Sofia, at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
