Under the direction of our trained staff, campers feel the excitement of rock climbing on our state of the art rock wall. All climbers will receive instruction and have the opportunity to climb every other week for campers that attend Monday through Friday.  The climbing wall has four separate routes with dinosaur fossils to find on their way to the top.  This is a camp favorite for all ages.

The on-site petting zoo is offered to all ages throughout the summer.  Campers will learn about the animals as they hold, care for, and feed them.  They are amazed to see the baby chicks and bunnies grow so quickly through the summer.
