Climbing at Camp

“At camp, I taught low and high ropes and when I returned for my 2nd summer I took on the climbing wall as well. These were fantastic activities to teach at camp and it was so rewarding seeing campers conquer their fears! At camp, we had plenty for the thrill-seekers including a low ropes course with lots of obstacles and team-building activities,  as well as a double-sided climbing wall.” – Glen Conbeer, Camp Lincoln
