Advance Campers have the opportunity to select an entire week of rock climbing or an entire week of kayaking. Climbers will build top-rope anchors, learn to lead and crack climb. Kayakers will take on advanced whitewater, learn freestyle rodeo kayak moves as well as run some sweet waterfalls.
These day camp sessions are specifically designed for all campers who have mastered our traditional Rock & River Sessions and have earned a Level III patch in either kayaking or climbing or both. Our Advance Campers have three things in common: 1) They want to graduate as a Jedi Master from our Rock and River Master Program, 2) They desire the skills to kayak and climb outside of Passages and 3) They see themselves as a Passages Counselor one day.
The Advance Camp Counselors are our most highly skilled and experienced kayaking and climbing staff. The goal of our Counselors is to challenge campers to achieve Levels IV and V by building hard-core skills and leadership. We maintain a 4:1 camper to counselor ratio to ensure the success of each of our Advance Campers. Our Rock Week and River Week overnight trips are designed for our most experienced and hard core campers. Look for them on our Overnight Camp page.
