Ages 9-13

This 5-day camp is Earth Treks’ most popular camp and our only camp to include outdoor rock climbing!  Participants meet daily at Earth Treks Climbing Center in Columbia, Timonium, or Rockville. The first day is spent inside with team-building challenges, learning belay skills and rock climbing safety. The next three days are spent at local outdoor climbing sites such as Carderock, Great Falls, and Rocks State Park. The final day will be back in the gym for a Climbers’ Olympics and a pizza lunch.

Being our most popular camp, this camp generally fills quickly. Sessions start June 20th.
