Bend Endurance Academy summer youth rock climbing


Registration for Bend Endurance Academy summer rock climbing programs is now open. The programs focus on getting kids outside and introduced to climbing outdoors in a safe and welcoming environment.

Camps will take place at the world-class climbing destination of Smith Rock State Park and include transportation, equipment, and instruction. The summer programs are geared towards youth participants who may have already experienced climbing in a gym.

“The four-day-long day camps are a great way for kids who are excited about rock climbing to immerse themselves in the sport for a couple days under the instruction of a professional guide and youth climbing coach,” states BEA climbing director Mike Rougeux.

There will be three camps offered beginning in July with two introductory level programs for youth ages 12 – 16 years of age and conclude with an advanced camp for more experienced teen climbers in August.

All of the summer climbing camps will depart from Bend Endurance Academy offices at 9:00 am and return to town at 4:00 pm.

Smith Camp 1: July 7 – 10, 2015

Smith Camp 2: July 21 – 24, 2015

Advanced Rock Camp: August 4 – 7, 2015
