Change your little’s life with a SLO Paddie Camp!

Help your child learn grit, problem solving, goal setting and more in a supportive team setting!

This isn’t a summer camp where you ditch your kid and call it a day! Paddie campers are given instruction on the many fun aspects of climbing including: basic climbing technique, bouldering fundamentals, belaying, knot craft, and much more.

They’ll try out many other high energy activities such as climbing games, slacklining, and a miniature competition at the end of each weekly session.

Our instructors work with each camper to both motivate and help develop problem solving skills, self-awareness, and self-confidence in a fun and supportive setting.  This isn’t a place to park your kids for the summer – you’re starting them on a confidence, athletic, and self-motivating journey!
