About Camp Altitude Gym

Mission & Values

At Camp Altitude Gym (our friends call us Camp Altitude), we believe that if children have fun doing physical activities, they are more likely to stay active for life. We also believe that by choosing rock climbing, they will develop specific skills in this sport including confidence, perseverance, self-improvement, problem solving, endurance, flexibility and strength.

Camp Altitude offers two fantastic sites. In Gatineau, activities are offered in an old church that has become a climbing centre. This is a French-speaking environment with bilingual facilitators who will ensure that instructions are given in the children’s preferred language. In Kanata, the camp is set up in an industrial building. The activities are conducted in English with bilingual instructors for the children’s comfort.


  • To have children discover rock climbing in a safe and friendly environment
  • To develop a taste for healthy lifestyles in children
  • To contribute to the physical, social and emotional development of children

To participate in Camp Altitude is to live unique experiences in a grandiose site, to discover a sport in full expansion, to have fun in a safe environment, to learn that with effort and perseverance, you can succeed in what you undertake.
