Looking for something fun and active for your kids to do over the long holiday? Some years, when we have the resources and feel there is adequate demand for it, we will run school holiday programs during January.
We offer daytime programs that run for 5 hours for children 10*-17 years old. The programs are suitable for kids of all climbing skill levels, including complete beginners. Throughout the day, we will teach the kids basic gym safety, how to belay (operate ropes), basic to intermediate climbing technique, and give them a full introduction to both top-rope climbing and bouldering at our gyms.
We will have multiple sessions available throughout the month, and space permitting, you can enroll your child(ren) in as few or as many of the sessions as you like. Each session will be capped at 20 students.
The cost of each session will include all of the climbing gear they will need for the day. If your child has their own gear, the price is still the same.
We’re pleased to offer a School Holiday Youth Climbing Program this January 2022 for children 10*-17 years old.
There are three available sessions:
Wednesday January 12th, 10am-3pm @ Mitchell (northside)
Tuesday January 18th, 10am-3pm @ Hume (southside)
Friday January 21st, 10am-3pm @ Mitchell (northside)
Enrollments are now open! Please call or email the hosting gym to book your child into a session.
Mitchell: 02 6262 4863, firstname.lastname@example.org
Hume: 02 6260 1101, email@example.com
What to bring:
We’ll provide all the gear necessary, the coaches, and a fun program. We’ll just need you to send your kids in runners and comfortable clothing (keep in mind our gyms get quite hot in January) with their lunch, snacks, water bottle, and drinks.
*Note: our 10-17 year old age limit is strict. Your child must be at least 10 to enroll, not 9 years and 360 days. This restriction purely has to do with legal/insurance requirements around belaying, and we unfortunately cannot be flexible with this.
