Camps are open to ages 10+ and are focused on a beginner and intermediate level for all activities included.


Indoor Climbing

Campers are introduced to the sport of rock climbing at Beyond the Crux. Campers will learn how to belay, rope climb and boulder in an indoor environment. These skills can help develop a lifetime passion for the sport, as well as set campers up with the skills needed to enjoy outdoor climbing!

Mountain Biking

Campers will be introduced to the joys of mountain biking. In the morning we will introduce the campers to biking with a lesson from a certified PMBI instructor. This will include some skill development lessons to ensure everyone is comfortable on their bike and ready to tackle some off-road terrain. The half day sessions each Tuesday will be a skill assessment and development session. Wednesdays each week will see campers trying out their skills on a variety of trails in Kelowna.

Bikes and helmets are provided. If campers have their own bikes they must have disc brakes and front suspension as a minimum and pass a check by our team to ensure they are in working order before they can be used for the camps.

Hiking

With so many great hikes here in the Okanagan how can we choose where to go?    Hike locations will change based on weather and the week so that campers who join us for more than 1 week will have an opportunity to experience a variety of that fantastic places we can hike.  Campers will learn about some native flora and fauna in the region and be introduced to the "Leave No Trace" ethics that will serve them in all their outdoor pursuits.
