Adolescent ascenders, ages 7–12, can safely channel their inner mountain goat on more than 12,000 square feet of scalable surfaces at Nashville School of Climbing's summer camps. For three hours a day over five days, skilled instructors guide junior climbers through basics skills, terminology, and interactive games. Rockhoppers' Camp (ages 7–9) and Cliffhangers' Camp (ages 10–12) boast a three to one camper to counselor ratio, and give parents plenty of free time to catch up on all the cartoons they TiVo'd. The cost of the camp includes harness and shoe rental, instruction, and a daily snack.
