So what exactly is TAPs?… Here is a little description!

taps9TAPs is the acronym for Thin Air Patrol. It is our specialty climbing program where campers learn the skills and gain the knowledge necessary to safely enjoy one of the oldest sports in the world. Campers who sign up for TAPs during their stay at Coppercreek start on our 40-foot multi-route climbing wall and bouldering area. They learn how to properly tie the most common knots, handle rope, and use climbing hardware while supporting fellow climbers as they attempt the wall. taps7When the campers are ready, the TAPs group goes on an overnight trip to a local granite climbing area. taps1The overnight trip starts with a picnic lunch while the climbing counselor sets up the climbing routes for the day. The campers then spend all afternoon climbing different routes on the granite slab and practicing their balance on the slackline. taps2When everyone has had their fill of climbing for the day, they head to the nearby campsite and take a plunge in the brisk river. taps4The evening is spent around the campfire roasting hotdogs, indulging in s’mores, and singing songs.taps3The next morning, campers head back to the climbing spot for another day of climbing. Some of the more advanced climbers may even try repelling! The second day also usually has a “challenge climb” for those willing to really step out of their comfort zone. taps6The campers arrive back at Coppercreek by dinner and begin sharing their two day adventure with all of their friends at camp. taps8
