About our teachers:
Most of our teachers offering academic camps have graduated from university social science programs. Some of the teachers have already obtained their teacher’s certificates and others are on their way getting them.
All of our teachers have passions in teaching with extensive experiences in beginning reading, creative writing, and study skills. Over the course of a full day camp, children are guided by our fully trained teachers.
Climbing will help your child learn a growth mindset, pacing and planning.
Self confidence: When harnessed and secured, a child can be on a low climbing wall and still repeatedly failing but then achieving greater heights. They directly feel the rewards of stepping out of their comfort zone. It requires children to shed their inhibitions and appreciate the value of persistence when facing tough conditions. Rock Climbing fills their minds with self-confidence)
Cognitive Development includes; Problem-solving, Spatial awareness, planning ascents and tricky challenges before you face them
Social and emotional development includes; self-esteem building, Self-Determination, making friends, trust between friends and camp counselors
Fundamentals Development; Agility, Balance, Coordination, Mobility, flexibility.
Responsibility and planning: Campers will also learn the safety aspects of climbing. From starting a climb to finishing the climb. Before starting, campers will have to find a way down in a safe manner.
Fun while being active: There will be fun activities during the 3 hours of climbing experience, campers will get climbing games and activities. We may even get a little competitive and do a little competitions at the end of the week to help motivate some of the campers. (These competitions are all friendly competitions. We try to make every camper a winner!)

We believe that your child should learn new things, meet new people, and best of all – forge friendships. Camp should be safe and run by trained counselors. Camp should also be fun and give many opportunities for YOUR child’s personal growth. Here is how Hub Climbing camp can provide meaningful experiences and expand your child’s horizons.
Hub provides a mix of activities so that learning comes naturally. We do more than climbing for our campers. We have arts and crafts, yoga, fitness games, outdoor games and, weather permitting, forest walks.
We strive to create a social environment that is caring and supportive where campers feel they can take risks, make new friends and try new things. At Hub Climbing, most of our campers are totally new climbers who come from a variety of backgrounds.
Multisensory Skill Building:
Climbing is both a cognitive and physical activity. The climbing challenges are designed to require a mix of athletic movement and delicate balance to complete.
Resilience and Overcoming Challenge:
Challenges always require conquering oneself. Your child will set personal goals, learn perseverance, explore and reflect on their successes and next steps. Talent is easy. Practice and trying is hard work. We will show youth, and adults too, that hard work can and should be fun. Remember, climbing is not about “heights” but about balance, goal setting, perseverance and of course brains and fitness.
Climbers will confront various challenges simultaneously. Participants leave the ground taking on short but tricky climbing challenges using their balance, technique, strength, and problem-solving skills. Their fear factor can be present as well. A climbing challenge can be as low as inches of the ground and still be very challenging to complete.
Trained Camp Counsellors:
Many of our coaches and camp program planners are certified teachers and/or teacher candidates and ECEs. More than that, our trained counselors share a love for the sport and the culture of co-operation. Your child will have experienced leadership from educators who love what they do. The counselors and teachers will set the tone for fun and excitement.
Our camp staff are trained in safety regulations, emergency procedures and communication, behavior management techniques, appropriate staff and camper behavior, and specific procedures for supervision.
Supervision & Behavioural management:
We believe in positive reinforcement, assertive role modeling and a sense of fair play. Camp takes place with a ratio of no more than 5 campers per counselor. Rules are necessary for any organization to maintain the safety and enjoyment of all participants. We use a progressive disciplinary approach where expectations are clearly stated at the beginning of each activity.
Come in and see us in action. Email us and set up a tour. There are also dozens of reviews online about our facility that will help you learn more about our unique organization and vision.
We look forward to seeing you at Hub Climbing this upcoming camp season!
