Rock Climbing

Rock Climbing is Awesome!

Rock Climbing is awesome at Camp Lohikan! We have climbs ranging from our beginner climbing wall to our 40’ climbing tower and from simple rock faces to vertical rock faces!

The view from the top is always better! We’ll help you get there safely through step by step instruction and the highest regard for safety.

Beginners start out on our 20’ climbing wall maze. After getting “the hang of it”, climbers graduate to the 40’ tall climbing tower which offers 3 different levels of climbing difficulty. Advanced climbers are further challenged by our 40’ tall real rock climbing site - located right on the camp grounds! Nothing’s like real rock!!! A variety of climbing routes and difficulty are available at the site.

The Rock Climbing Program is directed by a senior staff member certified to teach the program and familiar with the camp’s facilities. A staff of 6 college-enrolled and appropriately certified staff members provide beginner through advanced level instruction.

Safety is paramount. A helmet and harness are required to be worn on every climbing element and outdoor adventure element over 2.5 feet.

Every participant receives instruction and a thorough review of safety protocols before climbing. In addition to learning the fundamentals, campers also learn proper knot tying, rope care, belaying, rappelling and top rope climbing techniques.Young or old, Lohikan’s Rock Climbing Program is designed to provide a fun and challenging introduction to the sport of climbing for every age group.

Challenge by Choice Philosophy

Camp Lohikan observes the "challenge-by-choice" philosophy. Campers choose the difficulty of the climb, from introductory, to the more challenging, all the way up to our most challenging climb. It's entirely up to the camper. Everyone receives encouragement and guidance needed to meet the challenge selected. No one is ever forced or compelled to do anything with which they are not comfortable. Lohikan’s Adventure Program is a pressure-free educational environment.

Join us for your first climb… or your next climb!
