Activities at Camp Fairbridge Point Peron:


Abseiling is a controlled descent or rappelling down a near-vertical wall via a fixed rope. Our professional and qualified instructor will demonstrate the equipment necessary to abseil and discuss safety and the use of safety equipment. Participants have time to practice on flat ground the process of abseiling and what to expect before climbing the abseiling tower and putting their new skills to the test.


Learn simple skills and gain basic knowledge on how to safely use the required equipment to achieve great heights in our professional indoor climbing center. Full Day or Day & Night program can be run in 2 x 3-hour sessions. This program incorporates all 6 of the climbing activities, such as Prusik, Cave Ladder, Ropes, Boulder, Rock Climb, and Crate Climb.
