The Camp Child Adventure Day Camp is a new program centered on providing the building blocks for character development, leadership, confidence and self-awareness. We offer five adventure sport programs, each lasting 5 days (Monday through Friday). In some cases, based on participation, kids can take the same track and progress to more advanced skills training in follow-on weeks. Each track takes advantage of our unique geography and are led by professional instructors. The new Camp Child Adventure Camp experience will give our children the character, leadership and experience that will help them build exemplary lives. Rock Climbing: Climb to new heights! Learn the basics of the dynamic sport of rock climbing in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. In this class the youth will get an overview of basic rock climbing gear and learn how to put on a climbing harness. Students will be taught skills such as climbing techniques, safety, and knot tying, while experiencing some of Helena’s world class cliff-side landscapes. Geology, cliff ecology, minimal impact practices, and art in nature will be incorporated. All climbing gear provided. Climbing is one of the best ways for a child to gain confidence. From the first time we put your child into a harness, we lead him or her on a path that is safe, effective and rewarding. We employ guides and instructors who believe in helping kids achieve their dreams and view each class as a child’s stepping stone. In addition, day 3 of each track includes a full day of survival training for kids. Taught from the perspective of Search and Rescue professionals, each child will learn the basics of what to do, what not to do, and how to make sound decisions should they find themselves lost or separated from the group.
