Kids Break Camps

Salt Pump Kids Break Camps are offered during local December, February, and April school vacation weeks. Join us for a week or 3 days of climbing and adventure!

Throughout the course of a session, campers practice both bouldering and roped climbing; they also get a chance to explore advanced climbing skills like belaying, rappelling, crack climbing, and lead climbing and belaying. Our camps promote balanced activity – knowing that young bodies need a chance to rest and recover – so, we offer activities such as yoga, crafts, games, outdoor living skills, and other activities to slow the momentum of busy camp days.

Inside / Out Camp - Winter Edition

Snow forts, hot coco, and ice climbing?!? Join us over February break for five days of winter adventure. We'll spend our first few days climbing inside and learning winter outdoor skills like how to dig a snow-cave and cook on a stove in winter conditions. Then, we'll make our way to the mountains for winter hike, followed by a day of ice climbing in North Conway. If your teen can't get enough of the cold, this camp is for them! Appropriate for ages 12 - 17.
