We have made several changes to our Summer Camp plans as we have adjusted to follow changing recommended guidelines and best practices. We recognize these changes have impacted our climbers and campers, and we thank you for your continued understanding and patience as we create our new path forward.
In light of COVID-19 and based on current CDC, local government, and American Camp Association (ACA) Best Practices recommendations, Inner Peaks is changing all previously scheduled Summer Camps to Mini Day Camps. This will allow us to host camps & campers while the gyms are closed to all other climbers.

Based on CDC guidance on best practices for reducing the spread of COVID-19, all campers will be required to complete a symptoms questionnaire before camp each day, practice physical distancing and wear a face mask or cloth face covering including when climbing (details available at booking). We understand and appreciate that there are varying opinions on these topics, however without specific state guidance or local guidance we are following CDC recommendations. We have included in our lesson plans extra time for “mask breaks” outdoors, and time on the walls will be balanced with ground-based activities and lessons that require low physical exertion. We will also emphasize the importance of body awareness and taking extra breaks while exercising when wearing a mask.

Summer Camp Information
- All 2020 Summer Camps are now Day Camps (see above)
Ideal for young beginner climbers, this is an introductory camp for kids age 7-10 who want a basic, fun introduction to the world of rock climbing. New Rockers is comprised of five, 6-hour days at an Inner Peaks facility and includes a hike and Parent’s Day on Friday.
Campers will learn basic rock climbing and knot skills and will have lots of less structured time playing games, climbing and doing some indoor rappelling.
Pricing: $289. Camp hours are from 9AM-3PM*
Wall Crawlers is appropriate for newer climbers, children ages 10-14, who have never climbed before or who have enjoyed occasional visits to our facility. The Wall Crawlers camp runs from 9AM-5PM* and includes a hike, an outing to our other location (weather permitting!) and Parent’s Day on Thursday.
Campers learn basic climbing safety skills including how to put on a climbing harness, how to tie safety knots and how to operate a belay device. In addition to the traditional climbing activities, Inner Peaks has created unique games and initiatives designed to strengthen body, mind and spirit.
Pricing: $389. Camp hours are from 9AM-5PM*
