Kids' climbing clubs
Our weekly climbing clubs at the Healthy Living Centre help young people learn to climb in a safe environment.
All our clubs are led by fully qualified instructors who will help your child learn the basics of climbing. With the help of our coaches your child’s movement, balance, co-ordination, strength and confidence will improve and if continued will create independent climbers into adulthood.
