Salt Pump Kids Break Camps

Salt Pump Kids Break Camps are offered during local December, February, and April school vacation weeks.

Immerse your child in the wonderful world of climbing adventure. Each session is thoughtfully planned to contain a healthy mix of physical activity and mental stimulation – campers practice both bouldering and roped climbing, and also get to try out advanced outdoor skills like rappelling and crack climbing. Fun alternative activities including yoga, arts and crafts, and trivia games utilizing our in-house library of books and documentaries help slow down the pace and round out each day. Reservations are available in three, four, or five day blocks.

Our five-star instructors have the experience to find ways to challenge and engage first-time and repeat campers alike, gently nudging each individual child to discover the value of teamwork, failure, and personal challenge in a fun, clean, and supervised social environment.

Visiting Maine for the summer? Salt Pump Kids Summer Camps are scheduled throughout the summer, with options for indoor day camp, an outdoor overnight camp, and a hybrid indoor/outdoor day camp.

Parent Testimonials:

“My daughter was a little nervous to start a new camp, especially because she didn’t know anyone else taking the week long climbing camp. The atmosphere was relaxed, the activities varies, and she came home happy every day. Her counselor, Kai, was soft spoken and thoughtful, giving my daughter new skills and confidence in something she can continue to pursue. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommended the camp or the facility. Thank You!”


“My little climber has been so excited to share her experience with everyone. She loved climbing blindfolded and being able to learn belaying. This camp is packed full of fun, learning and adventure! A definite must on the camp list.”


“The staff was very patient and welcoming. My daughter loves to climb now. She’s hooked!”
