Today the counselors did a few activity orientations to teach the new staff and refresh the memories of the vets. Our Program Director, Alex, led the instruction at the climbing wall. The counselors learn safety regulations, proper knot tying, belaying technique, and how to fasten the climbing harness.
Our climbing wall has three sides, each one increasing in difficulty. Many campers spend a lot of time at the wall devising new routes to challenge themselves. Each summer there are always great photographs taken looking down at the climber from atop the wall. I look forward to posting a few this time next week!
