They are perect for children who just want to experience indoor climbing under the watchful eyes of one of our nationally qualified instructors without having to be part of a structured course.
There's no specific structure to this session, it could be ropes or it could be bouldering or even a mix of the two. It's even possible the instructor may throw an abseil into the mix.
parents please note: This is not a course. These sessions are aimed at young people just wanting to climb and take part. If you are looking for a structured climbing course for young people you should look at our NICAS / NIBAS courses.
Each session is 1.5 hrs long
Each session costs £15
The sessions are for children aged 7 upwards (anyone under 7 will not be allowed to take part and no refunds will be given)
Yes, each child needs to be registered with us. The consent form has to be signed by the childs Parent or Legal Guardian (not a nanny, child minder or other relative etc.)
The course was lovely, my son had a great time and was very excited about coming back in future. The instructions were kind and encouraging, a really great approach to make climbing fun. It would be great to have the sessions more regularly. A little more space in the rope area could be useful.

Children engaged, good mix of activities. Atmosphere/mix of people is good but in rope area adult climbers almost hit child twice whilst abseiling down quickly as area is quite enclosed.

The teacher was wonderful and Loren really really enjoyed herself, perhaps more information prior to the course on what one should expect & what is available to kids who would like to carry on. I understand it is really hard to get a place on any of the further sessions which is a shame.

My daughter loved it. It would help if I’d had an answer to what dates NICAS courses start . My daughter will love to join this course but I don’t really have time to keep checking when they go live .
