Senior Advanced Summer Camps

Senior Advanced Camps, Ages 13-18

Our Senior Advanced Camps for teen climbers with more trad outdoor experience under their belts. This camp focuses on higher-end climbing techniques, allowing climbers to push their boundaries and skill sets. Climbers will set personal goals and be given the opportunity to reach them with 1:1 guidance and coaching. This program is designed primarily for returning campers, but first time FMG climbers with more outdoor experience may enroll.

Our Senior Rock Climbing Summer Camp is designed for teens who have significant outdoor trad climbing experience. The typical camper has previously attended FMG’s Regular Rock Climbing Camp and returns to further develop their climbing skills, often attending back-to-back sessions of camp. Senior campers build on the foundation of skills they already have, refining their climbing technique and learning advanced technical systems all with the goal of preparing them to lead traditionally protected climbs under the watchful eye of our AMGA Certified Instructors.

As with our Regular Camp, Senior Campers are immersed in the climbing lifestyle, learning to be independent and self-reliant. They plan the meals, pick the climbs, and set the agenda for fun evening activities like ultimate frisbee, swimming in the river, and slacklining. It’s no surprise that this camp fills quickly as campers return year after year to experience another summer of climbing in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.

***NEW FOR 2017 – Senior campers will get the opportunity to climb Laurel Knob, the tallest rock face on the East Coast!***
