This intermediate climbing camp is for students who want to hone their skills and experience a week of the climbing lifestyle. The group will camp each night, cook their own meals, meet other climbers, and enjoy evening campfires. The destinations are two of the most well-known climbing areas in the southeast: the Obed in Tennessee and the Red River Gorge in Kentucky. Focus for the week will be on top-rope and lead climbing.
The camp is directed by Michael Short, SAS Outdoor Education Coordinator, coach of the school's climbing team, and middle school teacher. Michael is a Wilderness First Responder (WFR) and a lifeguard. He is an Eagle Scout and Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker.
Note: This program is limited to 8 participants.
