Salt Pump Kids – The First 9 Months

One of the highlights of opening the gym has been getting our kids programming off the ground. There is something so special about watching children climb. It is intuitive for them, and they are naturally uninhibited and creative, something many of us seek to be in our own climbing. Here are some images of #saltpumpkids from our first nine months in business (click on the image below to begin slideshow):

Some testimonials:

“What could be more fun for our 4 year old birthday boy and his favorite friends to do at a Superhero party than climb at Salt Pump?!  It was the perfect venue for 12 very active and excited kiddos who climbed their hearts out from start to finish and made our son feel like a superhero! The staff was very accommodating and helpful as we approached the party day to finalize last minute details. We were pleased to see that the staff to child ratio was 1:4, ensuring safety, as well as an exceptionally good time. The party room was just the right size for our little guests and their parents.  Following the party, we heard back from many of the parents and kiddos who told us what a great time everyone had at Salt Pump.  That was our primary goal in planning this party…. maximum enjoyment for all of the kids and to make the day a very special one for our birthday boy…. Mission Accomplished!” -Erin and Scott

“We just completed an overnight party for my daughter’s birthday…It is inspiring to see a staff that is passionate not only about their sport, but also about being professional from helping complete newbies to vacuuming the mats, the staff was always friendly and enthusiastic. A grade A experience!” – Will

“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.” – Lynn

“My son and daughter had a great week at Salt Pump! They can’t wait for the next camp!” – Cindy

“Working with the 6th-8th grade after school program has been a truly rewarding experience. Each session they bring their enthusiasm for climbing and their desire to progress. While they try hard, they laugh even harder. They are open minded, and yet critically engaged. They demand a justification for any advice they are given and I hope this characteristic permeates their lives. I look forward to watching them continue to approach both climbing and life with alacrity and stoke!!” – Zack, Salt Pump Instructor
