Kids Climbing Week End : August 29-30, 2020

About our camps

We are offering several climbing camps for children around the age of 7-13, based out of Leysin, around Verbier, Val de Bagnes and other venues. We are parents to an 8 years old and see the benefits of getting children motivated and started at an early age for climbing and mountain related activities. Our intent is to provide camps for children providing a safe, fun, and relaxing environment.  We are both bilingual IFMGA mountain guides with extensive climbing resumes and excited to share our passion with the next generation.  We provide a low ratio (4:1) to warrant more flexibility and maximise climbing time and safety for children. We want to challenge children and make sure they are having a good time by including activities such as swimming in lakes, treasure hunting, costumes, play ice and of course ice creams! Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have specific questions about our camps, other dates or private trips.
