Climbing



Rock climbing was the original basis behind the development of Summit Base. Today we offer two separate on-site climbing experiences:

Natural Rock Climbing
The "rocks" located next to Summit Base on the eastern side of Little Stevens Mountain is a 40 foot cliff which has climbing routes of varying ability levels as well as a rappel.

Climbing Tower
Our newly constructed 60 foot climbing tower gives you the chance to experience climbing the tallest structure in camp, and Warren County! With up to 12 different climbing routes and 9 rappelling stations our tower has something for everyone. Routes of varying nature are set by the staff and participant will find a variety of challenges from introductory routes to more difficult ones. Our staff will explain and outfit participants with all of the appropriate equipment and will teach the basics of climbing technique along with safety procedures like the climber’s contract. 

Climbing Merit Badge is offered during scheduled sessions during summer camp and can be incorporated into a weekend program.
