Kids Outdoor Camps

Come share in our love of climbing and adventure! Salt Pump Kids Outdoor Camps and Inside-Out Camps elevate (pun intended!) the adventure by taking climbing to the great outdoors. We have a variety of options, with full weeks of overnight camp at world-famous destinations right here in New England, and day camps that combine indoor days and outdoor days at local crags. Join us this summer!
