Thanksgiving Monday October 9, 12pm – 11pm
Empower your child with a holistic learning camp unlike any other!
Each day we’ll be exploring cutting-edge new technology through project-based learning experiences that help your student with the Ontario curriculum. Ages 6 to 14.
Our activities are designed to take kids on a learning adventure and encourage them to dream big and think innovatively.
Climbing will help your child learn a growth mindset, pacing and planning. Each day your child will conquer challenges and build skills and self esteem in the process.
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)
Problem-solving, Spatial awareness, planning ascents and tricky challenges before you face them
Self-esteem building, Self-Determination, making friends, trust between friends and camp counselors
Agility, Balance, Coordination, Mobility, flexibility.
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.
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!)
Each day your child will conquer challenges and build skills and self esteem in the process:
Climbing Lessons: Campers will learn the fundamentals of movement.
Campers will learn about safety equipment and how to think about safety first.
Unique digital climbing games that challenge mind and body.
Word Scramble, minesweeper, Rock paper scissor climb, and more!
Team based games, dodgeball, obstacle course, and more!
The teachers will provide a different theme each week.
On Wednesday kids can dress up or make some activities specific to the theme of the week. Some of the themes can be:
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 staff are trained in First Aid and CPR C. This course helps staff identify early stages of allergic reactions to better support your child
We will do our best to support your child in climbing and feeling comfortable.
If your child is too scared to try and does not like the experience then we can issue a refund for the remaining classes.
If you cancel a session with 48 or more hours notice you will receive a refund of the amount paid, minus the administrative fee ($15+ HST). With less than 48 hours notice there is no refund.
The program will start on time. It is not fair to all of the participants that were on time to make them wait. Once you have arrived your child can join in. We have a grace period of 15 min, anything after that or if it continues to happen on a consistent basis you will be billed for after-hours care at the going rate of $15/day.
The program is laid out to try several of the different types of climbing that HUB has to offer. If your child does not want to participate in that activity, we can work with you to find out what program or activity HUB has to best support your child’s needs.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
