KIDS ROCK (Gr. 1-4)

Kids learn climbing safety, skill and confidence. Our newest climbers will have a chance to earn an award by displaying a positive attitude and effort to learn how to climb. From there, climbers can strive to earn additional awards throughout the session which are based on increasing climbing skill, knowledge and use of safe practices, and willingness to help other climbers. A great introductory program for kids who love to climb!
