Kids and Youth Clubs

Our kids groups are focused on the FUNdamentals of bouldering. 

Your child will learn about safety in the centre and basic climbing techniques and will build on these principles as they move through the sessions. As well as plenty of actual climbing, we keep the sessions moving with age appropriate games and drills that incorporate a range of climbing techniques to improve their confidence on the walls and beyond.

Each child in a group will naturally have slightly different needs and goals, so our experienced instructors will tailor activities to your child’s needs and level of climbing.

Boulder Babies (Parent and Toddlers)

Boulder babies is a group for pre-school aged children (1-4yrs) and their parents, aimed at helping to gently improve confidence, balance, coordination and strength through soft play and low-level climbing. Being a parent is hard, so it’s also a social opportunity to meet other parents, move your own body a little and develop crucial networks for the ever-challenging early years. 


Allow your little one to explore their natural instincts to climb and play in a low-pressure environment, where babies can develop their crawling on the mats and those moving a little more can get used to climbing holds and develop their climbing.

 

Please note.

This is not an instructed kids’ session and is aimed to be more like an active stay and play session with elements of climbing used a tool to engage with. A FBR Team Member will be on hand to facilitate warmups and games, as well as help parents take turns in caring for other children so they can climb.


We have low level climbs for little ones and the area is sectioned off from the public to allow parents to socialise and allow children to climb and play in safe place. Parents must supervise, care for, and always remain responsible for their children. 

We provide climbing shoes free of charge, however our smallest size is a children's 9. Children can climb in their own shoes or trainers, we ask that these are clean and well fitting. We do not allow children to climb in barefoot or in wellies and ask on the colder days that children (and yourself) come wrapped up nice and warm.
