We’ve mentioned before how Crux Climbing Center is a great spot to take the whole family on an active outing, but did you know that they also host day camps for kids, too? This huge indoor climbing gym in South Austin is stocked with rope climbing and bouldering challenges that can keep kids moving and having fun all summer long (all while staying cool in the a/c).

Crux Crushers Camps offers youth ages 6-12 the opportunity to hone their rock climbing skills in a safe environment, all while making new friends and building confidence. In addition to lots of climbing, campers will get to participate in yoga, crafts, and plenty of games!
