Youth Camps

*COVID-19 Response*

May 29th Update: We're Re-Opening!

Ascent will re-open to members only on June 8th.
To provide time for our staff to adequately prepare and adjust to the new social distancing protocols, we have cancelled the first two weeks of summer camp programming: June 1-5, and June 8-12. All other weeks of summer camp, beginning June 15th, will run as scheduled.

We've already identified some ways to incorporate camp programming into our space under the social distancing restrictions we expect to be in place when we reopen. This will lead to our summer camps looking slightly different than they have in years past. For example, to promote social distancing from other gym users, summer camp programs will not be climbing in all areas of the facility. Rather, we have designated specific areas where all of our camp activities will take place. Additionally, we’ll be limiting our camp offerings to a much smaller participant count than we were able to provide last year.

In the event that you need to cancel your summer camp booking, we will provide the following options for participants:

  • We can rebook you into a summer camp later in the summer. We have seven weeks of camps with open bookings.
  • We can provide you with a credit in the amount of 115% of your original booking, that you may use for any of our youth programming in the Fall of 2020 or the Spring of 2021.
  • We can provide you with a refund in the amount of your booking.
I hope this update answers any questions you may have had about the status of our summer camp programming. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you.

May 20th Update: A letter to registered Camp Participants

Summer Camp Participants and Parents,

I want to provide you all with an update regarding our 2020 summer camp programs. Currently, Ascent Studio is still closed. We do not have a projected reopening date at this time, and are waiting for direction from state and local authorities to determine that date.

We are expecting to receive more direction from the state specifically regarding summer camp programming on May 25th, so we should have a clearer idea of what the later part of the summer will look like at that time. However, with the beginning of June rapidly approaching, we are making the internal decision to cancel the first two weeks of summer camps: June 1st through 5th, and 8th through 12th. As our prospect for reopening is likely to change week-to-week, we will continue to provide updates on a weekly basis regarding successive weeks of summer camp programming. We are hopeful that we will be able to offer the majority of these camps as scheduled.

We've already identified some ways to incorporate camp programming into our space under the social distancing restrictions we expect to be in place when we reopen. This will lead to our summer camps looking slightly different than they have in years past. For example, to promote social distancing from other gym users, summer camp programs will not be climbing in all areas of the facility. Rather, we have designated specific areas where all of our camp activities will take place. Additionally, we’ll be limiting our camp offerings to a much smaller participant count than we were able to provide last year.

In the event that we do end up cancelling any of our summer camps, we will provide the following options for participants:

  • We can rebook you into a summer camp later in the summer. It is more likely that we will be able to operate our programs in late July and early August.
  • We can provide you with a credit in the amount of 115% of your original booking, that you may use for any of our youth programming in the Fall of 2020 or the Spring of 2021.
  • We can provide you with a refund in the amount of your booking.
