REGISTRATION FOR GRYPHON CAMPS OPENS MONDAY FEBRUARY 5TH @ 5:30AM

Our Rock Wall tops out at 40' in height and boasts up to 17 different routes.  These is a mixture of top rope climbing routes and bouldering routes for the campers to climb and strengthen their climbing abilities.  While participating on the climbing wall, youth will build confidence in themselves and appreciate the importance of teamwork, safety, setting goals, and supporting others.  The skills learned on the rock wall will transfer into their daily lives.

Each camper will progress at a different pace throughout the week and will be grouped with those of the same ability.  Groups will learn specific climbing techniques, how to tie climbing knots, distinguish between top rope climbing and bouldering, become familiar with climbing terminology and equipment, how to warm up, and injury prevention.  All campers will be supervised by trained climbing staff who will facilitate their climbing routes and belay.  All equipment for rock climbing (harness and rock shoes) will be provided. 

Throughout each day, campers will participate in climbing preparation exercises, outdoor group initiatives that support teamwork, as well as a daily recreational swim.

ROCK CLIMBING 2.0: To register for Rock Climbing 2.0 (Aug.20-24) campers must have participated in a previous Gryphon Rock Climbing Camp Program.  Rock Climbing 2.0 will include advanced rock climbing techniques and an off-site trip to another climbing facility.
