Climbing for Kids

Climbing for kids at Boulders. Once your child is 7 years old, they’ll be able to join in with our climbing for kids activities on the main climbing walls. Our kids climbing class is a great first step for budding mountaineers and our climbing birthday parties are the perfect celebration for little monkeys!

Once your child has caught the climbing bug, they can progress by completing the children's climbing course. They'll then be able to join the Spider Monkeys climbing club and with more experience, the Geckos climbing club.

All of our climbing for kids clubs and courses fall in line with the academic school terms, breaking for holidays.

If you're a teacher or youth group leader and interested in climbing for kids, check out our school packages.
