Registration is on a first come/first serve basis. Some of our summer camps do fill up quick, but there is no way to know how fast that will happen.  We suggest registering for the weeks you know that you are interested in as early as possible.

If you are willing to travel to another Momentum location, consider registering for one of our other 2 Utah locations. You can also email the gym of your choosing to be placed on a waiting list in the case that someone cancels their booking.

millcreekcamp@momentumclimbing.com

sandycamp@momentumclimbing.com

lehicamp@momentumclimbing.com

Being placed on the waiting list does not guarantee your child a spot in our camps.  Please ensure that your contact information is correct so that the youth program manager is able to contact you should a spot become available.  Also, please know that in years past we have had very few cancellations.

Monday through Thursday we provide a light snack. In the past this has included Gold Fish, fruit snacks, Clif Bars and pretzels.  On Fridays, we have a pizza party to celebrate the last day of camp. If your child is gluten or dairy free, we encourage you send them with something yummy on Friday so they do not feel left out. Some parents have even brought gluten or cheese-free pizza in for their child! You are always welcome to pack your child extra snacks or a lunch for camp!

It is recommended to label anything your child brings to camp!

  • Socks- these may be used to prevent blisters caused by the climbing shoes.
  • If your child has their own climbing gear, they are welcome to use it.
  • If you child is a picky eater or has many allergies to food, you may want to send them with a light snack, as we take 20-30 minutes for snack time each day.
  • A willingness to participate, learn and have fun!
  • Electronics (iPods, Cell Phone, iPads, handheld games, etc)
  • Please do not send any fake weapons or toys with your child’s costumes

No! We provide all necessary climbing equipment for your child while at camp.

Campers should wear comfortable clothing that allows for freedom of movement.  Campers might be given theme days encouraging them to dress up, but it is not required.  

If wearing shorts, please wear shorts that are harness friendly and if wearing a skirt, please wear leggings underneath.

Unfortunately no, Momentum is not set up to provide any additional care before or after our summer camps.  

Momentum is an inclusive community.  It is our goal that each child at camp has a successful and healthy experience – socially, emotionally, and physically.  If your child has additional needs, please contact your gym’s youth program manager so we can help ensure your child’s success. Examples include: Learning difficulties or instructions better understood when given a specific way, extra notification or supervision before/while transitioning between activities, significant anxiety about being away from home/parents, significant social difficulties in group settings.  

If your child loses an item while at camp, please have the summer camp counselors help you check the Lost and Found before or after camp. If you realize an item is missing once the camp week is over, please check with the front desk for missing item(s).

**We recommend that you label all personal items brought to camp to easier identify when lost.

Rock climbing, like baseball or soccer, is an active sport and scrapes and bumps are not uncommon. It is our job to ensure that minor injuries are handled with care. Blisters are not uncommon on the hands and feet when learning to climb. If you see blisters on your child, please help communicate these hot spots to the coaches so they can help keep your climber comfortable.
Traditionally, climbing shoes are worn barefoot, but socks can help cut back on blisters when climbing shoes are worn for long periods of time. In the unlikely event of a major medical concern parents will be contacted immediately by program staff.
Skin care is important to new climbers. You are using a new part of your body to hold yourself on vertical terrain and it takes time for skin to develop climbing calluses. Everyone’s body produces moisture differently, and sweaty hands can be the difference of success and failure in climbing. For a beginner climber, developing your first set of calluses is a major milestone.

Tips and tricks:

  • Chalk can help! Momentum encourages the use of a chalk ball in a chalk bag for new climbers.
  • Pay attention to your hands after each climb, if the skin feels hot and/or turns red it might be an indication that it’s time to stop climbing for the day and let the calluses begin to form.
  • Keep hands clean and hydrated- wash hands free of chalk immediately after climbing and use oil based moisturizers regularly.
  • If you develop blisters and flappers (when a blister pops and leaves a flap of skin) use a small bit of tape over affected area while on the climbing wall to prevent further damage.
  • Unfortunately due to the volume of participants in most weeks of camp, we do not permit makeup days if your child is absent.  Each case will be reviewed on an individual basis to determine if a refund is warranted. If your child has an injury or medical emergency and is unable to participate please contact your facilities Youth Program Manager. millcreekcamp@momentumclimbing.comsandycamp@momentumclimbing.comlehicamp@momentumclimbing.comThe health and safety of your child is very important to us.  Parents will be contacted immediately if an important medical concern arises during camp.  It is our job to ensure that minor injuries (we use a lot of bandaids during camp) are handled with care.  Blisters do occur on the hands and feet when learning to climb.  If you see blisters, let the counselors know so they can help keep your camper comfortable throughout the day.  Traditionally, climbing shoes are worn barefoot, but socks can help cut back on blisters when climbing shoes are worn for long periods of time.
