Youth Team - Outdoor Camping Trips
NASHVILLAINS OUTDOOR CAMPING TRIP
It’s here! Join us on our first ever outdoor camping and climbing trip to Rocktown; near Lafayette, GA. We are excited for our youth climbers to discover more outdoor climbing, bond through their shared passion, and experience the great outdoors as a team. If you’d like to know more about why these trips are so valuable, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Below is a checklist for our outdoor camping and climbing trip. Please go over this list before you register for this trip, the details of such a trip are more complex than in the past.
Register using the form below. If you are not registered through our website we will not know that you are coming.
Be sure to answer all questions associated with the form.
Cost will depend on the number of days you will be staying with the team; either climbing or taking a rest day in Chattanooga (if needed)
Five Days - $150
Four Days - $140
Three Days - $130
Two Days - $120
For the purposes of this trip a “day” only includes a climbing or rest day with the team.
Ex. Arrive late Friday night and camp with the team; climbing Saturday and Sunday. This would be a two day trip.
Climbers may arrive early in the morning (no later than 10am EST) or after the climbing day has ended (roughly 5pm EST)
Climbers arriving outside of these hours may join the team but they will have to navigate up and through the climbing area individually
Group transportation options may be available on specific mornings or evenings
Please let us know if you can act as a chaperone! We will need chaperones to make travel easier and keep the number of cars at campsite low.
We will provide crash pads. If your climber has personal climbing gear that you’d like to use, you are welcome to bring it with you.
Parents should collect contact information from two of the coaches going on the trip. Coaches will have parent contact information as well. If your phone number has recently changed, please update your child's profile at the gym asap so that we have the correct contact information in the case of an emergency.
PAYMENT AND TRIP ORGANIZATION
Because of the nature of this trip climbing, departure, and arrival times for each climber will be individualized based on the content of the answers provided in the form below.
Based on the answers given the Head Coach will respond to each applicant with details for their trip, the cost of their trip, and any necessary additional information.
Once the Head Coach receives a confirmation and answers all pertinent questions they will charge the participant the amount listed.
This email will include details related to using the Georgia public lands; which require a permit (and a small fee) for anyone over the age of 15.
Be aware that the camping near Rocktown is primitive; with no running water, no bathrooms, and lights beyond what we bring ourselves. Campers should be aware of this fact and all it entails and ready to help with camp maintenance.
All campers, coaches, and chaperones will lend a hand in preparing meals, cleaning, and other necessary duties.
Coaches will be responsible for explaining and assigning these duties to all new campers
Ex: this is how you poop in the woods when it’s 2am
Climbers who repeatedly shirk their duties (after clear warnings) will not be allowed to attend the next team camping trip.
