Regular Summer Camps

Regular Camps, Ages 13-18

Our Regular Camps focus on the climber with little or no previous trad climbing experience. From kids who have climbed only on teams in gyms to those who have climbed outdoors but have only done sport climbing, we have campers who come from all over the country to learn to climb trad in North Carolina. Campers learn all aspects of climbing and have a host of new adventures! These programs are small, personal camps where you will meet lifelong friends and climb amazing rock in a wonderful setting.

Our regular camps are designed to take those new to trad climbing and teach them the skills they need to do everything from easy single pitch climbs to more challenging multi-pitch climbs. Campers learn to navigate multi-pitch systems, learn to lead climb, learn the subtle jargon, social customs, and ethics involved in rock climbing. In short, they become trad climbers!

We also try to teach campers to live like climbers live, fostering a sense of independence and self-reliance. At Fox Mountain Guides Summer Camp, campers plan the meals, pick the climbs, and set the agenda for fun evening activities, be it a game of ultimate frisbee, a swim in the river, or slacklining.

Key Points:

  • Single and multi-pitch climbing and bouldering
  • On the rock OUTDOORS every day, not in the gym!
  • For climbers 13-18 years old.
  • All equipment included.

Cost: $1200

Trip Insurance

We strongly suggest you look into ‘trip insurance’ as this may protect you from losing your money if you have to cancel your summer camp at the last minute.
