Are you action-adventure-minded and always wanted to go rock climbing? Or are you a good enough lead climber to set up the rope? Then Climbing Camp is your Camp to be! This Camp is entirely devoted to rock climbing and abseiling. You'll learn the various climbing techniques, such as anchoring and how to handle your climbing gear. You'll go climbing near the rocks of Pont-à-Lesse. They are close to the campsite where you're spending the nights. This is the ideal climbing venue for the Climbing Camp.
Are you already an independent top rope climber and you already have some experience in rock climbing? This should be no problem, because the instructors of Mountain Network can easily identify the different skill levels and will go lead climbing with the experienced members to train more advanced techniques.
Climbing Camp is made special by the fact that you can obtain your Climbing Certificate from the NKVB (Royal Dutch Climbing and Mountaineering Association). Do you think you qualify for the (lead) climbing certificate from the Royal Dutch Climbing and Mountaineering Association? Mountain Network will set out his exam for you, as they work closely together with the Association.
Besides the climbing activities there is enough time to relax. There is plenty of time for a swim in the river, a soccer game, or spending some time in a sidewalk cafe in the town of Dinant or socialise with your new friends. There is an evening programme featuring Movie Night. There are a number of other activities as well, such as raft racing on the river, primitive cooking, an orientation trip with maps, compasses and GPS and a spectacular via ferrata!
