HOW DO I RESERVE A SPOT?

All full day Climbing Camps require a $100 Deposit in order to hold a reservation. Half day camps require a $50 deposit. Payment in Full is due no less than 30 days prior to the starting date of the camp. Reservations may be made online or by phone at 877-822-ROPE.

Using our new online registration system:
The PRG now takes online registration (by deposit or Paid in Full) for all our summer camp programs. To register online, click the link for the Camp of your choice on the Oaks, Coatesville, East Falls, or Wyncote camp page. You will be asked to Create a New Account, which you must do using your child’s name, then you may select the dates of the camp of your choice.

If your child already has an account with us (with a valid email address), you will have the option to select from a list of similar names, or if you have aready set up a user name and password, you may log in using those. If you would like to reserve camp dates for more than one child at once, you must create an account for yourself (the parent), then select the button “Add Family Member” and enter the required information for each child you wish to register. Then, when you choose the camp you wish to pay for, you will be given the option to select which child you are registering.

If you cannot find the Camp you are looking for:
At the top of the registration page make sure the Enrollments tab is selected. Below that are several drop down boxes. From left to right those boxes determine the location, enrollment type and other specific camp information that will allow you to search for the camp of your choice. When searching for camps, make sure the First box has the location you wish (Oaks, Coatesville, East Falls, or Wyncote), the Second and Third boxes say Summer Camp, and the Fourth box says All Instructors. This will give you a list of all Summer Camps at the location you have chosen. Should you have any trouble, please call 877-822-7673 for assistance.

DO I NEED MY OWN EQUIPMENT?

The PRG will provide climbing equipment free of charge for all Day Camps and Adventure Camps. Camps which include Overnight portions, such as the Adventure Camps will have required camping equipment (such as sleeping bags, flashlights, etc.) for the Outdoor portion of the camp.

WHAT ABOUT FOOD (LUNCH, ETC.)?

At our PRG Day Camp kids bring their own lunches. For further questions, or if your child has special dietary requirements, please e-mail kids@philarockgym.com.

For the overnight portions of our Adventure Camps, meals are provided for climbers during the trip. For our Adventure Camp this includes 2 lunches, dinner and breakfast during the Outdoor portion of the trip. Please inform the PRG Camp counselor of any dietary requirements.

DOES MY CHILD NEED EXPERIENCE?

No. Our Day Camp and Adventure Camps require no prior climbing experience whatsoever!

CAN I SWITCH CAMP DATES?

Prior to June 1, if you wish to apply your deposit to a different camp date, every effort will be made to accommodate at no additional cost. Please note: since each camp has a limited number of available spots, we cannot guarantee availability for a different date. After June 1, your deposit less, a $50 fee, may be applied to a different camp date, subject to availability. For more information, please see our cancellation policy.

CANCELLATION POLICY

Deposits for all camps are fully refundable up to May 1. Between May 1 and June 1, deposits are refundable less a $50 cancellation fee ($100 cancellation fee for all Expedition Camps). After June 1 all camp payments are NON REFUNDABLE.
