To help develop these skills and keep things fun and interesting ROCKCAMP incorporates loads of climbing related games and activities. These are a great way to interact with others, have fun and to enhance climber’s abilities.

Why choose rock climbing?

Children love to climb! Trees, buildings, fences and play equipment, you name it, kid’s love to climb it. It’s a fun, exciting and a great way to explore natural curiosities.

ROCKCAMP – weekend/school holiday program embraces this natural desire to climb and harnesses it to teach the fundamentals of rock climbing in a fun, safe and rewarding environment.
