We aim to foster a community of inclusion for all people. Please review our Camper Code of Conduct for details and expectations. If a camper is in need of disciplinary action we will contact their guardian and give one warning (in most cases) before dismissing them from camp. We have a zero tolerance for bullying, hate speech, and violence.
Please complete these online forms prior to camp. All forms are required for participation in our camps.

What to Bring to Camp
FOOD AND SNACKS
Please feel free to send your camper with a snack* as well as a water bottle to stay hydrated. Snack breaks will take place outside as weather permits. We will ensure that all campers maintain an appropriate distance from one another when unmasked for snack/water breaks.
*While our facility is not a nut-free environment, we do ask that due to potential allergies among campers snacks brough to camp are nut-free. Thank you for your understanding!
CLOTHING AND PERSONAL ITEMS FOR INDOOR CLIMBING
- T-shirt and loose fitting/stretchy pants or shorts to climb in.
- Skirts and dresses aren’t advised, as wearing a harness can become uncomfortable.
- A fleece jacket or sweatshirt.
- Please be advised that cellphone use is not allowed during camp hours. Phones should be turned off/made silent and kept in campers’ bags or left at home.
- We will be going outside throughout the week for up to an hour at a time (weather dependent) – please pack weather appropriate clothing, sunscreen or bug spray for your camper.
Full payment is due at time of booking. The fee is 100 percent nonrefundable. All Salt Pump Youth programming cancellations will be made at the discretion of Salt Pump Climbing; this includes cancellations for any reason including a COVID-related closure. Cancellations of Youth Programming are normally done in line with the health and safety guidelines of the local school districts. No refunds, credits or make-up days will be offered.* If there are any questions, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
*Reservations can be moved between camp weeks (ie. changes) before June 1st as space allows.
As you can imagine, this is a challenging time to manage behavior that may put the rest of the group at risk. We tend to work with a 3-step protocol that includes working with the climber to better understand why we are asking them to follow certain procedures and how it is for their benefit and the benefit of the group. Our next step is to provide a safe space for them to be able to take a moment of reprieve and then chat with one of our program leaders until they are ready to rejoin the group. We hope that this will be enough for any climber. In the unlikely event that this isn’t enough for them, we will ask parents to come and pick-up the climber and we can try again next week. If this happens on another day, we will follow the same process, as it is hopefully familiar to the climber. If the climber goes home again on this second occasion, we will likely ask the climber to not return to programming and booking fees will be forfeited.
Inclement Weather Policy
All Salt Pump Youth programming cancellations will be made at the discretion of Salt Pump Climbing. We will take into account many factors, including weather forecasts, local conditions and school district guidance. Please do not assume that programming is automatically cancelled if local in-school instruction has been cancelled. Parents and participants can expect an email no later than four (4) hours before the scheduled programming (ie. by noon for the regularly scheduled 4pm programming). We will send out a day-of email, as well as post to social media, if programming is to be cancelled. In the case of cancellation due to inclement weather, a free-day pass (with rentals) will be given to each participant. No refunds or make-up days will be offered. If there are any questions, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
