Term-Time Kids Clubs | What to Expect



As many of our regular climbers will know, climbing and bouldering are great activities for both body and mind. Children especially benefit from climbing or bouldering regularly. It’s great for cognitive and physical development, as well as being a great way to meet new people outside of their normal peer groups!

What Kids Clubs are available?

We run NICAS Bouldering – which follows a nationally recognised syllabus aimed at teaching kids to climb safely and (eventually) independently. The scheme is for kids aged 7+ and has five levels, designed to turn even novice climbers into experts!

To enrol on the scheme, you’ll be asked to purchase a NICAS logbook (just £8). This is how our instructors and the kids themselves will track their progress. Each level has a variety of targets that need to be completed before moving onto the next level. These targets range from understanding specific safety rules and putting them into practice, to learning climbing techniques and more. You’ll book a term of classes, which are 60 minute long sessions that take place weekly.

We also run Creepy Crawlies. This termly class is for younger children (5 and 6 year olds). They’ll work on building their confidence on the climbing walls, playing climbing games and preparing for one day being able to enrol in NICAS. These sessions are 45 minutes long each week, and are booked for the term.

Booking & More Info:

Booking for the next term of NICAS opens in March. If you want to be notified when booking opens, please email us to be added to the mailing list!

You can find out more about NICAS and how it works at Yellow Spider on this page of our website. If you have any questions at all, please do let us know – we’re always happy to help!
