When my doughter and her friend went to the summer camp they had so much fun! By the time the week was over she was begging me to go for the rest of the summer!

I've only ever climbed in an indoor gym in pittsburgh, (I'm from Erie) and this gym far surpassed it! The staff are super friendly and laid back, and everyone is always ready to welcome you with a smile. It is a bit pricy if you don't have your own equipment or are a beginner, but overall it's worth it for... More

My son has attended this camp 5 years in a row now. He has learned so much about outdoor sports. Climbing, ropes courses, sailing, caving, etc. Totally worth it!

Great instruction gets you up to speed quickly. Then it's all about challenging yourself on various courses up the walls. The equipment they use here is easy and convenient compared to other climbing walls I've experienced. Highly recommended for a family outing, or a personal workout or challenge.

over 300 dollars for my kid to ride in a van to Bolton for hours - swim in dangerous locations, hit his head on the metal staircase, and almost fall over the second floor banister. no thank you. better summer camps out there for half the price

I like the large size of this center as well as the variety of skill levels they are able to accomodate. The staff seems devoted to making the experience challenging and enjoyable to everyone. Be prepared to leave with your fingers cramping and your forearms shaking with fatigue. Great T-shirts too!

We stopped in on New Years weekend as 2 families with 5 kids, ranging from 6 to 14. We had a great time and the staff was super helpful. They helped set us up with gear, trained everyone on safe belay tactics, and then let us rip. We spent hours there. One other thing worth noting is was the mellow... More
