5-Day Utah Rock Climbing Camp for Children

5-Day Utah Rock Climbing Camp for Children | undefined

This 5-day rock climbing camp in Utah is led by a certified guide from Utah Mountain Adventures and aimed at children aged 9 to 12 who want to learn the rock climbing ropes!



5 Days

Jun - Aug




Rock climbing is an exciting sport that conjures the image of adventure and can be practiced from an early age. In Utah, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy this outdoor activity due to its many mountainous areas and rocky formations.  On this 5-day Utah climbing camp for children, we offer kids a chance to experience the Salt Lake area nature whilst learning a fun and challenging activity.

On the 5-day rock climbing camp, kids will explore different types of terrains and techniques. They will become familiar with granite, quartzite and limestone rocks. They will also learn how to belay, rappel and maybe try some multi pitch climbing. As they learn rock climbing skills, kids will acquire physical strength and also a feeling of accomplishment after tackling a big challenge. The time spent outdoors, interacting with other children and with the surrounding natural environment is also  very stimulating for them.

The camp is for kids between 9 to 12 years old. Each day we will start off at 10 am and have some outdoor fun until 4pm. Parents or guardians will have to drop off their kids at designated meeting points. The guide will decide the meeting point on the night before depending on weather and group conditions.

If you are looking for a great summer alternative for your kids, then you have found it. Don't hesitate to book a place for them now on this 5-day rock climbing camp in Utah!

We also offer a rock climbing program for teens that you can book here!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
