Climbing is a fantastic way for children to exercise along with having a great time and making new friends. Our amazing clubs are the perfect first step for budding young climbers. With a structured progression through the levels, young climbers can learn about climbing movement in a fun and safe environment with one of our passionate and experienced instructors.
Our clubs all run on 6 week long terms, with short gaps between each term. You can pay-as-you-go (payg), or sign up for a full term. Full term sign-ups are given priority on fully booked sessions. Contact us for term times and further details
