Children at Eden Rock
Indoor bouldering is a fantastic activity for children of all ages. It will help improve physical strength as well as improving confidence and all a whole host of other skills. As well as being something different, climbing also develops the children’s problem solving and communication skills, as they work together to solve different climbs. It increases self confidence and fitness in a fun and relaxed way. Oh and gives you an hour off to grab a coffee and cake!
There are various options for you to get your children climbing at Eden Rock, please look below to see what suits you best.

'Minions' Climbing Club (3-5 years) £4.00
These sessions last 30 mins and the children climb with an instructor the whole time. Due to the nature of children this age, each session is treated individually so there is no block booking. Sessions must be booked in advance.
Term time: Sat and Sun 10.00 - 10.30
School holidays: Everyday 10.00 - 10.30
The School of Rock (5-14 years) + NIBAS (7+ years) £8.00
Eden Rock is now a NIBAS primary centre. For more information on NIBAS, click here
The School of Rock classes now revolve around delivering NIBAS, so if you've been before things might be a little different now.
The sessions are booked on a block booking basis, where a block will run in parallel with the local school half terms. One off bookings can only be made in special circumstances or if it is your first time climbing at Eden Rock. Below is a timetable outlining what sessions are running when.
If you are new to it, we are running "New Students" and "Pre NIBAS" sessions
For those who are new to bouldering and would like to try it out for the first time or who have been climbing for a little while but do not wish to participate in the NIBAS Scheme. If you join half way through a term this is the class you will start out in until the new term begins
For those who aren’t quite old enough to start NIBAS, but want to get a head start. We cover all the essentials needed basic techniques and safety around the wall, but the emphasis is on having fun!
