What kind of activities will my child be doing?
Rock climbing is more than just being able to get to the top of the wall. There are many techniques and skills to learn and develop that help you along the way. During your Stone Monkeys Group Adventure your child will learn the fundamental climbing techniques that assist them to approach the climbs with new found confidence.
To help develop these skills and keep things fun and interesting the session 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.
Each Stone Monkeys Group Adventure embraces this natural desire to climb and harnesses it to teach the fundamentals of rock climbing in a fun, safe and rewarding environment.
What if my child is not very sporty?
Not being good at ball sports or at running does not mean you won’t enjoy or be good at climbing. Be surprised by how many “non sporty” people climb and you will understand why being typically sporty doesn’t matter.
Each Stone Monkeys Group Adventure session maximises participation by incorporating activities that cater for a range of abilities. From beginner to advanced levels, every climber is capable of conquering their own mountain.
At Stone Monkeys it’s all about having a go.
You climb as high as you like, as hard as you like and…. almost as long as you like.
Is indoor climbing safe?
Yes. Safety at Sydney Indoor Climbing Gym is taken very seriously. SICG is vigilant in its maintenance of all safety equipment as well as ensuring all safety protocols are abided by and adhered to.
All Stone Monkeys participants are given a safety briefing on Sydney Indoor Climbing Gym’s safety procedures with camp members 10 years and older also receiving a comprehensive safety lesson in belaying (holding the ropes).
All Stone Monkeys instructors are experienced climbers that have passed the Working with Children Safety check.
Will a parent be required to be present?
No. All activities and belaying (holding the rope) duties will be looked after by the instructors so you’re free to go grab a coffee and relax. Parents are also of course welcome to stay to watch their monkey in action
