Climbing Dogs of Basecamp Adventures

At Basecamp Adventures we believe that it is truly important to recognize all members of our team. Today we will be recognizing the furry members that we have had over the years. Having a dog in the area creates a sense of comfort and happiness. When you are happy you remember not to take climbing too seriously and that the reason that we come to climb in the first place is to have fun! In this aspect dogs make us remember one of our core values of climbing and in turn that makes them very important members of the Basecamp Adventures family!

*All the pups mentioned have at one time or another been a furry member of our Wanaka location gym.

Now come and meet our Climbing Dogs!

Our favourite activity is best accompanied by our best friend. Which is obviously our furry pups of course. Our dogs always love to meet new friends so we thought that it would be nice to have an official introduction and some fun facts about our four-legged staff! Make sure to say hi to our resident Basecamp  Adventures Wanaka climbing dog the next time you come in for a session. We hope you liked meeting our Climbing Dogs!
