Set high above the ground, MetroRocks’ challenge course presents a series of unique elements and physical challenges as you move from platform to platform.

Wednesday - Hosted by MetroRock, we will hit some of Vermont's finest real rock and be scaling up the walls in no time. The day is a blend of climbing, safety instruction, and teamwork. Rainy days will take place at MetroRock indoor climbing facility.

Thursday - Awaken your inner Ninja Warrior and join us at the ArborTrek Treetop Obstacle Course and Climbing Adventure. Come prepared to climb, swing, balance, jump, zip, and dash through the forest on our Treetop Obstacle Course. Designed for those who like to get physical, the Treetop Obstacle Course blends beautiful views with a variety of elements ranging from easy to extremely challenging, including wobbly bridges, balance beams, rope swings, cargo nets, log swings, and more.Campers must be between 70 - 250 pounds and able to reach 66" standing flat-footed.

Friday - This is an action packed fun filled day. Campers will get to climb the climbing wall in our new FunZone 2.0 Go Zone.

And if that isn’t enough campers will also get to paddle board and enjoy a picnic lunch at Bootleggers’ Basin.
