Exciting New Addition to our Summer Camp!

During the weeks of July 3-6 and July 16-20 our Guelph Grotto campers ages 8-12 will be going outdoor rock climbing on the Friday! This will give campers a chance to experience real outdoor climbing and to use all of the skills they have learnt throughout the week. On the final Friday of these two weeks we will be taking a day trip to Rattlesnake Point and working with Adventure Works Inc., a team of professional facilitators who specialize in youth outdoor climbing programs .

After a short hike in, Grotto campers will spend the day rock climbing or rappelling with help from our certified instructors and instructors from the Adventure Works team. In addition to climbing we will also be hiking, picnicking and playing various games throughout the day.

Please let us know about any accessibility concerns and we will do our best to accommodate!
