Outdoor Day Camp

MetroRock is proud to offer an entire summer of outdoor climbing to our next generation of climbers. Outdoor camp provides children with the opportunity to experience climbing on real rock at some of the region's best climbing areas under the supervision of experienced instructors and outdoor educators.

Camp sessions are run weekly, each day travelling to a different location with different climbing terrain and different challenges! Participants meet daily at our MetroRock locations, travel to the day's site as a group and return in time for pickup. Fun and games provide a break from climbing during the day so kids stay excited to climb and get a balance of activities.

Overnight Rumney Camp

MetroRock is excited to offer Rumney Adventure Week in beautiful New Hampshire. Each session invites young enthusiasts (with some climbing experience) to enjoy a full week of world-class climbing, with our trained and knowledgeable guides. Rumney has hundreds of routes in a variety of grades for climbers at all levels to enjoy. There are enough routes and crags for each day of the week! As always, our number one priority is safety; helmets, rope, draws and other gear is provided. Contact us for a full list of what climbing and camping gear participants need to bring.

Participants meet at Rumney on day one and spend the week climbing and camping with our experienced counselors. Campsites, meals, and transportation during the week are provided.

Merit Badge

MetroRock's Merit Badge Counselors can confidently offer your scouts all of the information and coaching needed to earn their Climbing Badge according to current Boy Scout requirements. Due the amount of material covered, we recommend doing the course in two sessions. The first session will focus on the basics of tying in and belaying. The second session will cover climbing and rappelling in more depth allowing plenty of time for skills verification. MetroRock guides will be available at a 1:6 ratio and rental equipment is included.

When: Typically one weeknight (7:30pm-9:00pm) and one weekend day (10:00am-3:00pm)
