Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 10.47.46 AMWhen we realized we were building the country's largest bouldering gym, we knew we had to design a space that had something for everyone. That meant including a dedicated kids area and climbing structure at Dogpatch Boulders. This is AMAZING for two reasons: First of all, kids will have their own area! The little ones will be able to scramble around an awesome castle complete with slide, ladder, shorter slab walls and turrets from which to keep a watchful eye on the front desk! With a dedicated kids area, there will be room for everyone at Dogpatch Boulders. 

We offer a variety of structured kids programs at Dogpatch Boulders. 

After School Camp Members $225 | Non-Members $275

Talk about a great after school program! Watch your children build confidence, make friends, and learn to climb in one of our ten week sessions. Bouldering is a great way to get your kids interested in climbing or to help them burn off a little (or a lot) of that excess energy.

Summer Camp Members $200 | Non-Members $250

Kids get a chance to meet for 1 week with our amazing instructors to build skills, make friends and have a blast! Participants will learn the fundamentals of climbing movement, spotting, falling and route reading. Our experienced and supportive staff emphasize personal responsibility and encourage each camper to develop greater self confidence throughout the session. Weekly classes start in mid June and run through mid August for children ages 7-12 at Dogpatch Boulders.

Sign up for five days of climbing from 10am to 1pm!

Beginner, intermediate, and advanced level climbers are welcome. Please arrange to pick up your children promptly and please send your children to class with a healthy lunch or money to purchase snacks. Please Note: Under-enrolled summer camps may be canceled 7 days prior to start date.
