Cole Canoe Base offers several different climbing options to the scouts of your unit. Each is designed to offer climbing opportunities to even the least experienced members of your unit.

The Bouldering Wall: A 12 foot high multi angle climbing surface. Offers climbers a unique challenge of climbing horizontally.

The Climbing Tower: Soaring in at over 35 feet above the ground, the Cole Canoe Base climbing tower offers climbers a multi-faced simulated rock climbing experience. The tower also offers the ability to rappel or zip line. Make sure you sign up to take on this high rise of an attraction, when you soar to new heights with the Climbing Merit Badge.

The tower is open for both the climbing merit badge and troop climbs. Sign your unit up at the Sunday night special events sign-up.

Speed Climb Competition

Anyone wanting to prove their climbing speed and agility can attend our Speed Climb Competition. Compete against other scouts and the winner becomes the fastest climber in camp

Night Climb

Climbing at night is a different experience for all. You will only be able to see using a head lamp so if you're looking for a night time challenge, come visit the climbing wall.
