Bozeman Youth Day Camp:

Introduction to Outdoor Rock Climbing

JULY 9-13 / AGES 9 AND UP / $350


For the first time ever, Touch the Sky is offering a day program for kids interested in trying outdoor climbing. For this week, climbers will be dropped off at Spire Climbing Center in the morning, go climbing outside all day, and then return to Spire in the afternoon to be picked up by their parents.

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday will all have a similar outline. Touch the Sky will select the most appropriate outdoor climbing areas for the group to visit based on ability level and weather conditions. Wednesday will be a unique day for the group, as they will participate in the challenge course at the Mountain Sky Guest Ranch in Paradise Valley.

This camp will have  a wide emphasis on transitioning from gym climbing to outdoor climbing, technique, rope work, gear usage, and safety. It is a great opportunity for a climber who has always wanted to try climbing outside after climbing a number of times indoors at Spire Climbing Center or another gym environment.




  • For kids and teens ages 9 and older
  • Short approaches at classic Bozeman crags
  • Perfect introduction to fun, safe outdoor climbing techniques

Meeting location and transportation

Climbers will meet at Spire Climbing Center and ride with Touch the Sky's guides and trip leaders to the day's climbing location, and return to Spire at the end of the day for pickup. Please pack your own lunch.

Prepare for camp

Climbers should have some previous experience climbing indoors, and feel comfortable climbing up to 5.8 on toprope. Please bring your shoes and harness, a day pack with water, your lunch, and snacks. We will provide ropes, helmets, and lunches.
