2020 Summer Camp Update

Written By

Smaller camp sizes, more time outside and creative thinking.

We know these are trying times for everyone, including parents. With schools closed through the end of the school year, the pressures of homeschooling and a growing need to keep kids entertained at home; we could all use a little light at the end of this uncertain tunnel.


Planning ahead

As we have now entered Phase 2 of Washington’s Safe Start plan, we’re slowly beginning to reopen parts of our business. With this progress, Edgeworks is confident in our ability to provide Summer Camp programming – it will just look and feel a little different from what we’re all used to.

Reduced Camp Sizes

The health and well-being of our members, guests + staff continues to be paramount in our decision-making. For that reason, camp sizes have been reduced from 12 participants down to 5 or 6.

We have also implemented an all new set of community health guidelines to help mitigate health risks for our employees + campers.

More Time Outside

As anticipated, state guidelines are limiting the number of people allowed inside the gym at one time. The good news is that so much of our Summer Camp programming, fun and adventure can be done outside!

Our amazing Youth Program and Outdoor Guide staff have researched a variety of local outdoor locations for our Adventure Rock camps to still enjoy some much needed outdoor adventure this summer!

Silver Linings

The other silver lining of these changes has been the opportunity to develop a new curriculum to further engage and inspire campers to keep climbing and exploring the outdoors. Our staff have brainstormed some really fun ideas that may just result in better than ever experiences for our campers!

Keeping You Updated

As news from Governor Inslee continues to develop throughout the summer, our plans may continue to change. We will be sure to keep you updated with any necessary adjustments to our programming.

We also invite you to check our website, Facebook and Instagram accounts or drop us an email at climb@edgeworksclimbing.com.

We’d be happy to hear from you!
