In BaseCamp, kids ages 12 to 14, experience an awesome 2 week training course for the body, mind, and spirit. Both of our BaseCamps are designed for adolescents with a passion for challenge and adventure.
BaseCamp is designed to make competent campers and climbers out of those with little or no experience. Inside our facility, campers will become prepared for a two-day, overnight hike-camp-climb which takes place on the last two days of the session.
Advanced BaseCamp is a high-adventure camp for kids ages 12 to 16. These campers are expected to have the skills taught at BaseCamp. Campers will spend just one day in the gym, preparing for the next 5 days, which they'll spend on the trail and at the crags. We will hike in, setup a primitive campsite, climb, swim, and go caving just outside of Chattanooga.
The climbers at M14651 are real people, laid back, friendly, and helpful. No posing or posturing here. Some of us are here for physical fitness, some for the camaraderie, some to prepare for outdoor climbing, but we're all here to climb and learn for the pure pleasure of it. If you don't have climbing partners yet, no worries, you will soon enough. We also know that routes make the gym. At every level climbers deserve excellent training opportunities. You will always find countless, exquisitely crafted routes and problems to work on.
