Kids Climbing Class

These classes tailored for kids constitute an education in climbing, and apply to all forms of climbing (bouldering, sport and trad). Our goal with the kids classes is to build on the natural confidence and athleticism children have to create climbers with excellent foundational skills and attitudes. This class is suitable for children ages 7+. We accommodate younger kids (ages 3-6) in our private session format.

Climbing attire is comprised of comfortable, breathable and stretchy clothing; no jewellery of any kind visible; hair tied away neatly; nails trimmed close on both hands and feet. Bring a water bottle with electrolytes and light snacks for hydration and energy. Session duration is 90 minutes.

For details on pricing and timing, please see our main climbing webpage.
