Tree Climbing Camp

Please review AdventureTerra’s COVID-19 Safety Plan prior to registering. Subject to change.

AGES 8-13

Specializing in rock and canopy climbing activities, AdventureTerra programs leave people with lifelong experiences they will never forget. These fun activities are designed to teach people how to climb and also help participants explore and build upon important character skills and traits like confidence, inspiration, tenacity, passion, discipline, selflessness, and courage. We look forward to climbing and sharing these powerful, unique experiences with you.

Have you ever looked at an old-growth tree in the forest and wondered how you would get up there when the first branches are hundreds of feet up, or what the view would look like at the top of the canopy? Join this personal, small group camp and you will have fun experiencing it all; playing around with different climbing techniques, equipment, knots, outdoor safety skills and learning how trees talk to each other! A chance to see wildlife from a totally different perspective and learn about interesting ecology and environmental topics too.

Please register at least 2 weeks in advance.
