Salt Pump Summer Camps provide young climbers a chance to explore the exciting world of climbing in a supportive and inclusive environment. We seek to instill confidence and inspire learning both on and off the wall, encouraging each child towards his or her full potential. Join us this summer!

At Salt Pump Summer Camps, our talented instructors have the experience to challenge and engage first-time and repeat campers alike. We personalize our programs to meet each climber at the level they are at while instilling the confidence needed to explore new terrain.

Throughout the course of a five day session, campers practice both bouldering and roped climbing; they also get a chance to explore advanced climbing skills like rappelling, crack climbing, and lead climbing. Our camps promote balanced activity – knowing that young bodies need a chance to rest and recover – so, we offer activities such as yoga, crafts, games, outdoor living skills, and other activities to slow the momentum of busy camp days.
