Registration Now Open for Treetop Climbing Camp

The Grand Rapids Treetop Adventure Park, will be hosting its first ever Treetop Climbing Camp, a Climbing Day Camp for the curious, adventurous, and outdoor-lover in your house! Life is better in the trees!

At Treetops Climbing Camp you will get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at what is all involved in Adventure Climbing. You will get one-on-one training from our skilled Park Guides on all the tricks of the trade over a period of three days from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM each day. We will start with the basics, have a nice look at safety, and then work on some different skills each day.

Adventure Climbing is a style of climbing specifically aimed at Adventure Parks. Instead of vertical climbing like you would see on a Climbing Wall for instance, this takes planning as you traverse through different types of obstacles at varying height. An Adventure Park itself is a combination of suspended obstacles above the forest floor like bridges, cargo nets, swinging logs, rings, skateboards and ziplines. Climbers stay securely clipped in with the self-guided, double-clip Clic-it Smart Belay system on the course. The courses range in difficulty from the easiest to most difficult, similar to ski resorts with green, blue, and black runs. Adventure Climbing is a new type of climbing that is sweeping the nation. What’s fun about it is that you don’t need to be an athlete to find success in Adventure Climbing. You will use different muscles that you don’t usually use, while still having a blast!

Two sessions are now available for three days each, from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM each day. Session One is from June 19th to 21st, and Session Two is from June 26th to 28th. Over the course of three days you will learn about our gear, safety on the course, basic climbing techniques, and different techniques for moving up the three different levels we have on our course. This Day Camp is best suited for kids ages 10 to 15.

Tree Top Adventure Park is set in one of the many beautiful forests Grand Rapids has to offer. The park is located right next to the Celebration IMAX Theater off Beltline & Knapp in NE Grand Rapids.
