Earth Treks has collaborated with Ultimate Watersports to bring you a fresh camp that is a guaranteed winner. This five-day camp exposes kids to two of the coolest sports around — rock climbing and kayaking.

Climbing days include basic safety skills instruction, team building games and challenges, and loads of climbing. Kayaking days will be under the guidance of the Certified Kayak Instructors at Ultimate Watersports. Campers will learn flat and moving water paddling skills as they explore the Gunpowder River. Other topics also covered include, tides, currents, weather, water safety and self-rescue.

Each week is divided into two groups (Session A and B). Drop off and pick up times and locations are the same for each group (Earth Treks Timonium Climbing Center), but the groups alternate between climbing and kayaking activities. One group will spend the first two days at Earth Treks Timonium while the other group will head off to Ultimate Watersports to kayak. Wednesday and Thursday, the two groups will trade places. Friday will be spent at Earth Treks’ Timonium Climbing Center where both groups will enjoy a friendly climber’s Olympics. Transportation to Ultimate Watersports is provided.

***The extended care option is not available for the Rock ‘n’ River Camps.***
