MT. ERIE YOUTH SUMMER CAMPs

July 8th - 10th : Girls Only Ages 8-14

JULY 15TH - 17TH : co-ed Ages 8-14

Open to ages 8-14, this three day beginner to advanced camp will be located at Mt. Erie in Anacortes, WA. The camp will focus on building confidence on and off the wall, climbing safely outside, and having fun. Our goal is to create an environment for youth to thrive and be their best possible selves.

This camp is designed to encourage youth to challenge themselves, build confidence, and continue on the path of self-love through rock climbing. We will transport participants to Mt. Erie, with pickups in Bellingham, Burlington, and Anacortes.

Climbers will be placed in groups based on age, ages 8-10 and 11-14 will climb together.

Jessica Olson (Jo) can be found traveling throughout America, from coast to coast, developing her love for climbing. When she returned to San Diego after studying abroad in 2013, she worked at the local climbing gym and developed her skills as a Rock Climbing Instructor while spending all her spare time out exploring the local California Granite.

Climbing has always given Jo a sense of purpose and taught her to focus in pursuit of her passion.
