Some people are born to run, and others are born to scramble up and down walls and ceilings like a tokay gecko. Unleash your inner lizard with today's Groupon to Wallnuts Climbing Centre. Choose between the following options:
• For $95, you get a one-week kids' summer camp program (a $197.75 value, including HST).
• For $95, you get a half-day guided outdoor climbing tour (a $203.40 value, including HST).
One of Newfoundland's premier climbing hubs, Wallnuts Climbing Centre teaches eager cliff clingers how to scale walls with hands-on programs. Held Monday–Friday mornings, the five-day kids' summer camp outfits pint-sized climbers ages 5 and older in all necessary gear and plans programming appropriate for both new and returning youngsters as well as mendacious puppets aspiring to real boyhood. In a safe, controlled environment, instructors emphasize active living, fun, and the importance of catching the carrot-dangling gnome at the summit. Choose a five-day program from the eight weeks between July 4 and August 26.
The half-day outdoor climbing tour pairs serious scalers one-on-one with Association of Canadian Mountain Guides–certified guide Leo van Ulden. Author of the Newfoundland Climbing Guide, van Ulden takes moutaineers out for scenic climbs along Canada's East Coast for a half day of knotting, rappelling, anchoring, and high-impact yodelling. The tour demands some climbing experience; Wallnuts recommends rock wranglers have taken or possess the skills covered in the Learn to Climb Package or Rock Level 1 classes.
