Rock climbing is fun for kids and a great camp experience!

Campers will experience climbing, team building, games and crafts. Climbing will consist of top rope, autobelays and bouldering. Campers will work on progressing their climbing while having fun and using proper technique. Older campers will focus on technique and different problems. Younger, less experienced campers will focus more on having fun and being safe while climbing.    Supervision at a 1:5 ratio.   Campers will spend anywhere from 2-3 hours climbing in the day.

Camp Philosophy

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.

Varied Experiences:
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.

Social Diversity:
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.

Cognitive Development
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.

Safety:
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.

Tour Available:
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!

Sincerely,

Your friends @ Hub Climbing
