These private courses are by far our most popular program. Ideal for all ages and ability levels. Perfect for anyone who is looking to add some adventure to their time in Acadia or Camden.

Never climbed before, or perhaps just inside? This is the course for you. We will customize your course based on your age, fitness, experience and goals for the day. This is ideal for the whole family! We routinely take kids as young as four years old!

We offer these courses in both a half day (four hours) and full day (eight hours) Individuals, families, and large groups routinely sign up for these courses. The focus is less on instruction and more on the experience.

If rock climbing is just one of several activities you want to experience while on vacation in Acadia, then The Climbing Experience, our half day course, or its variants, is a perfect choice.
