|Climbing Camp for Ages 12-15 Offered on June 26-28|
Youth can learn to climb, tie knots, and belay during a camp being offered in late June by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District.
Climbing Camp is for ages 12 to 15 and is an opportunity to make new friends, and spend time at the TimberRidge Adventure Center. Participants can expect a very physical experience from this camp as they experience the traverse wall, and climb and team belay the 40-foot Hawk's Nest Climbing Tower. While the focus will be on climbing skills, there will also be time to swim and canoe.

Climbing Camp will take place Tuesday, June 26 through Thursday, June 28. Activities begin at 9 a.m. and continue until 4 p.m. No before or after childcare is available for this program. Participants will need to have a health and liability form signed by a parent or guardian to participate. Campers will meet each day of the program at the Ernie Miller Nature Center, 909 North Kansas 7 Highway, Olathe. The cost for three seven-hour sessions is $80 per child for Johnson County Residents or $88 for nonresidents.
