This camp is only open to Upper school students: Incoming Freshman – Graduating Seniors

This will be the first-ever all outdoor bouldering summer program run by the Heights School. The DC, MD, VA area is not well known for its outdoor climbing; however, it is riddled with hidden gems. This camp is being run for those interested in climbing to get hands-on experience and discover great bouldering areas right in their own backyards. This will enable climbers to begin visiting areas on their own (and with their teammates) and begin exploring for themselves the incredible and tight knit outdoor bouldering scene our region has to offer.

This camp will be run and organized by Thomas Moriarty, Heights alumni and founder of the Heights climbing program, and Mr. Eric Heil the head coach of the Varsity and Junior Varsity climbing programs.
