The Our Kids review of True North Climbing - Day Camp

 

It’s often said that climbers climb mountains because they’re there, though, in actual fact, it’s not as much about the mountain as it is the process of addressing it. Any climb is a personal journey, and the creation of True North Climbing has been as well. Previously a tech professional, John Gross founded True North in 2010 less out of a proficiency with climbing—he’s the first to admit that at that time his enthusiasm outpaced his ability—than an understanding of the values and the lessons that climbing brings to a community. Teamwork, confidence, cooperation, challenge by choice—all of those things are at the core of climbing, and the camps allow an opportunity to extend them to young people. The facility is arresting and impressive in all kinds of great ways. It’s big, colourful. It’s also clearly very ordered, professional, and technical. Kids naturally approach the environment with respect, because that’s what the space and the staff both demand. The community that has developed at True North ranges from absolute beginners—the facility hosts birthday parties, which are many kids first experience of it—to national competitors at the very top of the sport. The counsellors are highly qualified and accredited, and the passion that they bring to the sport is an important part of the camper experience. Session enrolments are kept intentionally low in order to maximize time in participation. Weekend scrambles, school holiday sessions, and seasonal registration pacakges allow kids to extend the camp experience through the year.

Will Jung, Camp Director

When we began True North Climbing, in 2010, our vision was to create a fun place where the whole family could feel at home – especially kids. We have a Day Camp program where kids can have a ton of fun while working mind and body.  We believe strongly that the sport of indoor rock climbing provides a unique opportunity for personal challenge, teamwork, cooperation, confidence building, and improved self-esteem.  

We also believe in hiring the very best staff and we take safety seriously. All of our Climbing Instructors are required to have a valid First Aid certificate at least equivalent to St John Ambulance Standard First Aid with CPR. This includes training in the use of the EpiPens and AED that we have on site. In addition, all employees have all gone through a Police Reference check, as a means of protecting the children who use our facility.

When we began True North Climbing, in 2010, our vision was to create a fun place where the whole family could feel at home – especially kids!  Since we opened, we’ve had thousands of kids come through our doors and the reviews are in – kids really do love to climb!  

Because of that, True North Climbing's programs for kids - run the gamut!  Whether it's a Birthday Party, 2 Hour Scramble Session, Day CampSchool Field Trip, Youth Recreational Program or Youth Competitive Team, kids at TNC have fun while working mind and body.  We believe strongly that the sport of indoor rock climbing provides a unique opportunity for personal challenge, teamwork, cooperation, confidence building, and improved self-esteem.  And over the years, we’ve seen that happen in kid's lives - time and time again!
