Inside-Out Camp Information

Camp Hours

  • Please be prompt in picking up your child at 3:00pm or use our after-hours care service.

Thursday – Friday (potentially Wednesday) 7:45am – 5:00pm

  • Please be advised that we may use Wednesday as an outdoor day if the weather looks bad for Thursday – Friday. We will decide at the beginning of the week and schedule accordingly. Please note the difference in camp hours.
  • We will run outdoor days in rain so long as we feel that we can do so safely. Some of the best adventures happen in less-than-perfect conditions!
  • Please review the packing section to be sure you and your camper are well prepared for these long outdoor days!

After care options for day camps (available from 3-5pm):

  • $20/hr (+$10/hr for additional siblings) for anything less than week-long or if only using 1 hour per day.

  • No partial hour prorating. Must pay full hour.

Required Paperwork

Waiver – Everyone entering out facility must have a waiver completed; this includes climbers, spectators, and chaperones. Please fill out a waiver for yourself and your campers.

Outdoor Waiver – All campers who are traveling with us to outdoor crags must have this waiver completed before the start of camp.

Medical Form – This form asks important questions about your child’s medications, allergies, insurance, and emergency contacts. This is also a place to mention any other medical or behavioral concerns.

Van Rider Assumption of Risk – Since Salt Pump will be providing transportation to-and-from the climbing areas, please review and sign this form before the start of camp.

Camper Code of Conduct – Please review this with your child so everyone understands our expectations. We will also review this on the first day of camp.

Facility Rules – Please review these rules with your child before camp. We will also review these rules on the first day of camp.

Required Paperwork

A lot of where we go depends on the weather and the group dynamics, but we will normally be at one of the following climbing areas:

We will always provide parents with our location and contact numbers before leaving each morning.

What to Bring to Camp

FOOD AND SNACKS.  Your camper is going to burn more calories during camp than they may be used to.  Please pack:

  • A lunch and extra snacks for your child every day. In addition to a lunch break, we take a morning snack break, and an afternoon snack break as needed (we will not sell or give your child any food from our cafe during camp hours).
  • A personal water bottle to encourage proper hydration throughout the day goes a long way in keeping climbers strong!
  • Please send AT LEAST 2 liters of water with your camper on outdoor days! That’s two Nalgene bottles.

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. We have the AC on and it can feel chilly at times.
  • Any personal climbing gear your camper would like to use – otherwise, all climbing gear rentals are included with camp.
  • 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 – please pack sunscreen for your camper.

  • Camera (optional).
  • Any personal climbing gear (we will supply anything your camper does not own).
