Climbing at Camp

May 20, 2013
The Nature Place

We have a new addition to camp this summer, geared especially toward some of our older groups. Monkey hardware is basically a portable climbing wall that uses secure rachet straps to put climbing holds up trees. Using a belaying system, climbers ascend in harnesses and helmets. We’ve just spent three days doing low and high ropes course training to prepare for this exciting addition to our summer programming. Climbing at camp will be especially practical for our oldest group, before they go climbing during week six on actual rock face in the Shawangunk Mountains!
