Tadpoles (5-9 years)
The Tadpole Semester Program is a 10-week course, which gets your young ones involved in climbing in a controlled environment. They’re probably climbing your bookcases, curtains and trees as it is, so why not let them explore their natural abilities with one of Vertically Inclined Rock Gym’s expert instructors?
The Tadpole course runs 1.5 hours every week during which time the Tadpoles learn the basics about climbing equipment, how to tie a climbing knot and all the climbing safety checks. Also, there will be climbing related games and activities - but the majority of the time will be dedicated to climbing all over the walls!
$240 + GST which includes all required equipment and ten 1 ½ hour sessions.
*Minimum of 4 participants to run program.
