The adventure day camps are great if you have kids that need lots of activity. Each day they mix it up with different places for hiking, caving or climbing. Then they end the day at a different swimming hole or lake for some water fun. Pack tons of water, food and sunscreen and be ready for tired campers at pick up!

I have brought my son to Petra Cliffs for the past few years - both daytime climbing and for summer camp. The staff were friendly and helpful. My son built confidence and when he was ready to move to the next level during our daytime excursions, staff were available to help. At camp, staff were friendly and accessible during pick up and drop off. There was some bullying that occurred during camp and although staff were very responsive,...more

My 7 year old participated in a week long summer session last year and found it tough going, but not in a great way.
He wasn't put with a group of kids his own age so he constantly felt like the little kid of the group and that he wasn't good at anything. Not that I needed his ego massaged - he doesn't need to be good at everything, but I could start to empathize when I realized he wasn't with other kids his age or experience....more

We just did a week of the summer adventure camps and, overall, I think it was terrific. I think it's really worth it for all the activities they engage in - something different each day from kayaking to caving to, of course, climbing. They swam somewhere each day. My son enjoyed. As a parent, the reason I'm not giving it a 5 star is that there was very little communication back to parents. Pick up and drop off was just a mass of kids...more

I took my three boys (ages 8, 6, and almost 4) to Petra Cliffs today for a fun activity during the school break. After getting our harnesses and some quick, helpful belaying instruction for me, they spent a very enjoyable couple of hours scaling the walls! My two older boys were able to get to the top with no problem. My youngest made progress with each attempt, so all left feeling satisfied by their accomplishments. Their camps sounds...more

I brought my typically timid 5-1/2 year old to go climbing and as I expected, he wanted nothing to do with it. That was, until he saw someone hanging from their harness high above his head with a huge smile on their face. He looked up and said, "I want to do that!" A 1/2-hour later there he was, "high-fiving" his climbing buddy up at the ceiling after getting himself all the way up. We're HOOKED! Can't wait to go back.

I took my daughter, who is nine years old, to Petra Cliffs on a whim one Friday night. We got there and the woman at the front desk was great, making my daughter feel welcome and excited. I think it cost around $10 just for my daughter to climb for the evening (I was the guy who stayed at the bottom with the rope and made sure she didn't fall!). We got a quick (5 minute) lesson from one of the staff, who was friendly and professional, then...more
