Roanoke Rocks Climbing Camp (Ages 14-17)
Explore the sport of rock climbing as we travel around the Roanoke Valley and the region to get a taste of what rock there is to get our hands and feet on! The week will start out with basics such as knots, anchors, and learning how to belay. Participants will travel to a new location to climb each day. The highlight of the trip is an overnight journey to the New River Gorge in West Virginia where we will camp out and enjoy some of the best rock climbing in the country! The program fee includes all equipment, instruction, and transportation as well as camping fees, equipment, and meals while on the West Virginia overnight. Participants are required to bring lunch each day as well as a sleeping bag and pillow for the overnight. We will meet at Norwich Venture Center and travel each day to a new adventure.
