Youth programs will be running differently this fall. Please see below for some new changes that might affect your decision to book.
We love introducing people to the sport of climbing and helping them develop further. We offer programs designed for both kids and adults at both the beginner and experienced level. See below for more details!

Masks are required | Slots will be 45 minutes long | 4 kids/class on weekdays; 8 on weekends | No climbing before/after class unless a slot has been pre-booked online | Parents/guardians/siblings cannot hang around during weekday classes
Our recreational program is designed to have kids spend as much time as possible on the wall. This program will be best suited to youth who are interested in just climbing for fun, want to climb with their friends, or even meet new friends who climb.
We will be running two age groups with at least one session running every day:
A to C age categories (youth born between 2004 and 2009)
D to F age categories (kids born between 2010 and 2015)
Masks are required | Slots will be 1 hour | 4 kids/class | One time slot per age & skill category | No climbing before/after class unless a slot has been pre-booked online | Parents/guardians/siblings cannot hang around during classes
Our development program is focused towards youth who are interested in improving as climbers with the potential to enter the competitive stream or simply progress through the sport as passionate lifelong climbers. The program sessions are divided by both age and ability.
This program is designed to have skill-based levels per age category and placement will be determined by our staff. Any child new to our youth development classes must start at level 1. This program is not geared towards first-time climbers.
City of London Recreation Programs
We are a host site for City of London Recreation programs and offer 4-week programs in partnership with the city. These programs are great for brand new climbers and are offered at a lower cost. We have classes for toddlers and young kids, teenagers, and adults!
