Kids reach new heights in indoor rock climbing camp

It may feel like your kids are climbing the walls at home with stay-at-home orders and businesses closed. But these kids literally are climbing the walls during a camp offered at Rockreation indoor climbing gym in Costa Mesa.

Five kids, all masked up and socially distanced, learned about climbing techniques, equipment and outdoor etiquette during a recent camp session.



This was one of several smaller camps offered during the summer.

Student Mateo Senizergues said he feels a little scared when climbing the 30-foot walls, but enjoys competing against himself.

“It’s not just about grip,” he said, “but about knowing where to grip. It’s a fun challenge.”

The main business is closed to the public, but camps are allowed to operate by following day camp guidelines set through the California Department of Public Health.

The gym is hoping to resume normal operations as the governor allows businesses to reopen.

Rockreation, which has more than 100 routes including top rope, lead climbing and a bouldering area, is taking signups for camps over the Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks.
