Kids, children and young people LOVE to climb. It’s natural.
Climbing allows children to challenge themselves against the climb and their own ability. It builds hand eye coordination, balance, physical development, mathematical problem solving, dexterity and patience. Using ropes the sport still relies on team work.
Wonderfully we have found that this is a sport almost any child can find a strength in, satisfying the cheeky monkey within.
Climbing indoors in a safe environment not only expresses that climbing urge, it offers great physical exercise and mindful engagement. Flexibility and core strength play a part in the sport too, very similar to gymnastics, yoga and meditation.
Combine this with putting your life in your friends hands as they hold your safety rope, climbing develops trust and life long bonds.
Along with great friendships it also develops responsibility, understanding and often a wanderlust for travel.
