Kids Camps

Beach day vibes and sunny days are right around the corner. Due to many parents working from home this summer, we expect a very strong turnout for camp. We want to get our dates and portal up early so parents have time to reserve their space and plan accordingly for summer! Grotto summer camp space is limited to 14 kids max per camp. We feel this ensures a safe experience with conservative counselor ratios and without massive groups.


Here at Grotto Summer Camp, campers will learn the basics of bouldering and will advance their climbing technique, strength, and confidence! Not only will they learn how to climb safely, they’ll lear to push their physical limits and learn how to climb like a pro with our fun climbing games and team building exercises.

Each camper will get one-on-one coaching as well as group coaching. They’ll learn the importance of stretching and training with a focus on great sportsmanship and team camaraderie! Climbing provides personal growth and development, leadership skills, and hand eye coordination while getting a great workout and having a great time doing so!

Snacks/ Lunches will not be provided. Due to allergies, safety, and food handling policies we will not be providing snacks or lunches for campers. Campers are expected to bring their own food and drinks each day of camp. We recommend athletic clothing and closed toed shoes as well.

If the camper has not previously been to the Grotto, please fill out a waiver at www.grottoclimbing.com.
