For teen guys ages 13-17
Come join us at Northern Frontier as we explore God's beautiful creation in the Adirondack Mountains. Using proper safety gear and supervised by experienced and trained staff you will climb/rappel many of the majestic cliffs in the Adirondack Park. You will review the basics of climbing (knots, harnesses, commands, safety). Then after you practice and show competence in those you will be taught more advanced skills (climbing techniques, rappelling, and anchor setting). This trip is very physical, you should train in advance strengthening your core, grip strength, and pull ups. As physical as it is it is also a very chill and relaxing trip with no time crunches or deadlines. You progress and challenge yourself at your own pace.
You will become proficient in basic rock climbing skills and then tackle some of the Adirondack's best rock climbing sites. Sites like The Beer Walls, Starbuck Mtn., Noonmark Mtn., Shanty Cliffs, Barkeater Cliffs, Chapel Pond area cliffs, The Creature Wall, Jewels and Gem Wall, Deadwater, Poke-o-Moonshine, and much more.
You, two leaders and seven other guys will be camping out and sharing a week of experiences, pushing yourself, making friends, working together, building trust, cooking your own meals, setting up your campsite, sharing in rich biblical conversations, and being saturated in God’s beautiful and majestic creation. You will share stories about this week for a long time to come.
