Boys & Girls Club

 


Indoor Climbing

Campers are introduced to the sport of rock climbing at a local climbing gym. Campers will learn how to belay, rope climb and boulder in an indoors environment. These skills can help develop a lifetime passion for the sport, as well as set campers up with the skills needed to enjoy outdoor climbing!

Mountain Biking Summer Camp

Mountain Biking

Campers will be introduced to the joys of mountain biking. In the morning we will introduce the campers to biking with a lesson from a certified PMBI instructor. This will include some skill development lessons to ensure everyone is comfortable on their bike and ready to tackle some off-road terrain. The half day sessions each Tuesday will be a skill assessment and development session. Wednesdays each week will see campers trying out their skills on a variety of trails in Kelowna.

Bikes and helmets are provided. If campers have their own bikes they must have disc brakes and front suspension as a minimum and pass a check by our team to ensure they are in working order before they can be used for the camps.

Outdoor Rock Climbing

Campers will get a chance to climb outside in the amazing Skaha Bluffs Provincial Park in Penticton.  We will shuttle down in the morning to meet our instructors from Hoodoo Adventures who will take us out and show us the ropes!  This is a unique opportunity to get outside and try climbing on real rocks not offered by many camps in the Okanagan!
