The week will include as much rock climbing as possible, but will allow one day for a hike and some swimming at the beach (only when a life guard is on duty) at Lake Minnewaska.

*please understand this is a group program and while we will work to increase participants skill level, the days will be catered to meet the needs of the entire group. If you’re looking for something specifically catered to your child, or a child who is a strong climber, you may want to consider a private outing.
