We’ll kick off the Summer camp on Tuesday with a Youth Climbing Open House from 5:30pm – 6:15pm. Learn more about Team Rock Mill, meet the coaches, and experience the community. Summer Camp will then officially start at 6:30pm.

On Tuesday & Thursday kids will work directly with our Team coaches to learn and practice competition-style climbing and safe falling techniques, as well as a performance mindset. They will then put their new skills to the test during a mock competition on Sunday evening. Kids will be guided through the entire process with direct mentorship and tips for how to continue their training.
