For campers entering grades 8 – 9
Experience the thrill of exploration along with the confidence and trust that comes from rock climbing. Wolf Ridge provides all climbing equipment and no previous experience is required, just a hearty sense of adventure!
The forests and shores of Lake Superior near Wolf Ridge are the home of some of the best rock climbing areas in the Midwest. Camp Rock Climbing offers a week of exploring the world of rock climbing, starting with basic climbing techniques indoors and geology, moving towards more advanced skills like knot tying, anchor building, and the dynamics and challenges of climbing outdoor rock. The week culminates with a 3-day camping and climbing trek to some of the more secluded crags in the surrounding area.
Rock climbing is a great way to build confidence, do some creative problem-solving, and practice persistence. Our adventure ropes course adds another fun puzzle and more opportunities for teamwork.
It’s easy to make new lifelong friends when you play all-camp games after a day on the rocks, and end out with a campfire and s’mores. Many campers return again and again!
Campers will be able to express themselves and their own individual artistic tastes through traditional crafts & skills and our own choose your own adventure day, a day in which your camper will be able to choose their own path and activities for the day.
