Rock Climbing for Kids at Eden
Set your children on the path to an active and adventurous life by signing them up for the Eden’s Kids Rock Club, offering young people the chance to scale new heights at Bodelva’s rock-face each Saturday morning.
The rock climbing lessons at this superb facility at Eden are suitable for children aged seven to 16. Sessions are designed to help participants build their skills and confidence, while working towards a qualification awarded by the National Indoor Climbing Achievement Scheme.
Whether keen climbers or absolute beginners, children and teenagers can get to grips with the basics of rock climbing on the Climbing Wall high above the Biomes. They can also have a go at the new Bouldering Wall, which offers problem-solving challenges to climbers of all abilities as well as the experience of outdoor climbing without the need for ropes and safety equipment.
Mike Olivant, Duty Manager at Eden said: “We have a brilliant outdoor, all-weather facility here. We are really pleased to be able to use it to help children challenge themselves, learn new skills and even gain an official qualification.”
The club, which runs every Saturday until November 3, costs £7 a session, or £6 when booking a block of six in advance. The sessions start at 9:30am in the Visitor Centre and go on until 11:30am. To book a place, contact the Eden Box Office on 01726 811972.
