Devil’s Lake State Park, Baraboo Wisconsin. Devil’s Lake is approximately 3 hours from Chicago. This climbing area has the reputation for offering the most variety of climbs in one location and is ideal for novice and expert alike. The view from the top of the cliffs is breathtaking, and if it’s a hot summer day we can cool off in Devil’s Lake public swimming area. Get out of the gym, and experience the real thing.


Rock climbing trips are a great way for youth leaders to connect with their students. While our guides see to your physical needs, you can focus on your students other needs. Most students (and many leaders) will be out of their comfort zones, trying new activities, pushing themselves, and having a great time. At the same time youth leaders will create shared experiences.
