What is Climb So iLL?

Climb So iLL provides the St. Louis area with two world-class climbing gyms – the Power Plant in St. Louis and the Steel Shop in St. Charles. Reach new heights on our climbing walls, find your balance in our yoga classes, and get your heart pumping in one of our fully-equipped fitness areas. No matter your age or ability level – there is a place for you.

What can I expect from a day of camp?

Climbers engage in a number of activities throughout a day of camp. They learn proper climbing etiquette and technique and develop these skills over the course of the week. They also play games such as dodgeball, tug-of-war, and gaga ball. Each of these is supplemented with time for arts and crafts and other downtime activities. Climbers are supervised at all times by our team of dedicated counselors.

What should my climber bring to camp?

We encourage parents to pack a snack and water bottle for their climber. We also recommend that all climbers come to the gym in close-toed tennis shoes. We will provide all of the necessary climbing equipment (climbing shoes, climbing harness, etc).

Can I drop my climber off early?

Unfortunately, we are not able to provide early drop-off for either our A.M. or P.M. sessions.  For individuals who have signed up for our A.M. sessions, please note that doors to the climbing gym will open at 9:00 a.m. In general, Climb So iLL opens its doors to members and the general public at 11:00 a.m. If you need assistance to enter the facility, please call the gym‬.

Where can I complete my climber's waiver?

You can complete a waiver online. We will need this form on file prior to your climber’s first day of camp.

The energy, independence, and empowerment this camp is fostering in these girls just rocks! The space is amazing visually as well. As an artist, I was impressed by some of the design elements incorporated into the climbing surfaces. What a gem this place is!

Words from my 11 year old: "It's amazing. We should climb everyday there." My 10 year old says, "It's good because there are a lot of auto-belays and a lot of climbing areas." My 8 year old says, "We climbed a lot and I met some new friends." It really is a great climbing space.
