This is a day camp and we won't have overnight accommodation included. However, families travelling a distance are welcome to reserve camping in one of the nearby campgrounds: The closest is Mount Kidd RV park with full hook-ups. The next closest is Eau Clair Campground with 51 sites suitable for RVs and tents (no services), $31 a night.  All the other campgrounds are about a half hour drive away. This is Lower lakes, Boulton Creek, Elkwood, InterLakes in Peter Lougheed Park.

This event is for WISDOM families only.

Details of the day:

  • Climbing will be at Wasootch Slabs in Kananaskis.
  • All climbing equipment/gear will be supplied except for helmets. I have a few helmets. If your child has a bicycle helmet or a ski helmet, please bring it.
  • Running shoes tied snugly will work the best. Avoid heavy footwear.  
  • There will be a safety meeting before the climbing begins. Please arrive at 10:00am at the crag (where the ropes will be set-up) for this safety meeting.
  • Climbing starts at 10:30am and goes till 4:00pm. We will have a 1 hr lunch break at Noon. Bring lunch.
  • This is a wonderful location for beginners.
  • The crag is only a short (200m) walk from the parking lot.
  • Bring folding chairs to sit and cheer your climbers on. It is a great location to just sit and enjoy a sunny day.
  • Outhouses are at the parking lot. There is one outhouse close to the crag, but you will need to bring your own paper and perhaps a little stronger constitution (since it is not really looked after).
  • We will be in a natural environment and climbing is serious, as such, no foolish behaviour will be tolerated.
