Choose Between Two Options

  • $59 for a one-day kids rock-climbing camp for one child (a $119 value)
  • $99 for a one-day kids rock-climbing camp for two children (a $238 value)

Each one-day camp begins with a brief nature walk, where kids learn about native wildlife and California’s natural history from knowledgeable guides. After the hike, campers break into small groups of up to six—giving those aged 8–11 a break from the business-related discussions of those aged 12–14—and set up at the base of beautiful sandstone cliffs. Here, guides fit their protégés with all the needed gear, including climbing shoes, helmets, harnesses, and belay devices before kids learn basic rock-climbing theory and safely practice skills such as belaying, controlled rappelling, and how to avoid paying tolls to mountain goats. Camps meet from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays at either Castle Rock or Malibu Creek State Park.

Treks and Tracks

Surrounded by craggy peaks, three men in bright red helmets stand in the midst of wilderness, surveying the mountains around them as their group of hikers break for a snack on the rocky ground. This interface with the majesty of nature is all in a day's work for this trio of adventurers: Paul Mangasarian and Jakob and Daniel Laggner. Still, their passion for open-air exploration grows with each expedition they lead. Paul, Jakob, and Daniel cofounded Treks and Tracks with the dream of orchestrating excursions into nature that combine ancient means of travel—such as sailing, horseback riding, and hitchhiking on a centaur—with modern sports ranging from surfing to rock climbing. Though they focus on introducing novice outdoorsfolk to unspoiled wilderness around the world, Treks and Tracks' cofounders also strive to leave the awe-inspiring surroundings they visit as pristine as they found them by rigorously upholding practices of environmental stewardship on each expedition.
