21 Mar Climbing
We have purpose built indoor climbing walls at each activity centres, creating the safest possible environment for young people to be introduced to climbing.
These sessions offer children a chance to challenge themselves on an individual level and to support each other as part of a team. Children have two safety ropes attached when they are climbing, doubling the safety provision. One rope is attached to an auto-belay and the other goes through a belay system operated by children, teacher(s) and the group leaders. As well as belaying, the children waiting for their turn to climb are kept busy providing encouragement to fellow climbers. We have extra challenges for those who choose to push themselves that bit further, as well as exciting climbing games to suit all levels of confidence and ability. Our instructors are skilled not only in the technical aspects of climbing, but also as motivators and confidence builders so that they can ensure every child leaves this session feeling proud of what they have achieved.
