Teen Adventure Camp


(Ages 13-18) Our ‘Regular’ Camps have been designed and improved for many years to focus on the climber with little or no previous climbing experience. You will learn all aspects of climbing and have a host of new adventures! These programs are small, personal camps where you will meet lifelong friends and climb amazing rock in a wonderful setting.


(Ages 14-18) Our Senior Programs are advanced camps for teen climbers with more experience under their belt. This camp will focus on higher end climbing techniques allowing climbers to push their boundaries and skill sets. Climbers will set personal goals and be given the opportunity to reach them with 1:1 guidance and coaching. This program is designed for our returning campers mainly, but first year VA climbers with more experience can enroll. Camp also includes kayaking, caving, hiking, and more!


Overnight campers join the leaders in preparing delicious, healthy camp meals. Vegetarian options are available as well. Sample evening meals include pasta with sauce and salad, vegetable stir fry w/chicken side.


These camps meet on the first day at Camp Aero-Ridge- Union Center, WI, or Hidden Pines Adventure Center near Lake Delton, WI . Meeting time on the first day is 9:00 a.m. Transportation to the climbing areas will be via camp vehicle(unless otherwise arranged). Pick up will be at the same location at 4 PM on the final day or Devil’s Lake SP based on actual schedule.


All campers will stay at our private Camp Aero-Ridge log cabin or at Hidden Pines center in tents. The cabin is complete with foosball, basketball, pool table, air hockey, hiking and ATV Trails. Nightly campfires build fellowship and friendships that last a lifetime.
