    The White Mountain School's Summer Climbing Camp provides a safe and challenging climbing experience for beginner to advanced climbers ages 12-17. Taught by instructors trained or certified by the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA), this camp delivers the finest climbing in New England and engages students in developing a progression of skills tailored to their specific climbing goals.

    Campers are housed on the beautiful White Mountain campus and have access to the School's facilities, including the 3,000-square-foot, 38-foot tall Beverly Selinger Buder Climbing Wall. The Buder Climbing Wall has a rope climbing section with 13 toprope anchors with an average of 32 climbing routes, ranging in difficulty from 5.2-5.12d. The Buder Climbing Wall also features a 500-square-foot bouldering area, which includes a seamless ground pad system and an average of 32 boulder problems for more skill-building and fun.

    Our Summer Climbing Camp focuses on the fundamentals of rock climbing through a low 5:1 student-to-instructor ratio to ensure the correct level of challenge, guidance, and safety for all participants. Students learn the basics and then embark on adventures at large cliffs such as CannonCathedralRumney, and Whitehorse to experience the freedom of rock climbing in the mountains.
