GPRC Climbing Gym School & Youth Groups
Climbing can be a great way for your students to learn confidence, self-awareness, team-work, communication, and leadership skills. In addition, climbing increases balance, flexibilty and strength in a fun and exciting setting.
Below are our most popular programs or you can contact the gym and ask our staff to design a program specifially for your group.
Our Basic climbing course includes bouldering and top-rope climbing. Staff will supervise your students and lead them through bouldering games designed to increase their self-confidence, awareness and balance on the wall. Students will also have the opportunity to reach the top of the wall. For students under 13 years of age, staff will handle the ropes, for students 13 and older, we will show them how to belay!

The belay course can be done in one booking or we can break it into several bookings. This course will prepare your students to pass the belay certification test. Once they have passed the test, they will be able to belay independently in our gym. The course focus is on safety and will cover how to correctly put on the climbing harness, how to tie the figure-8 knot, and how to belay correctly. We stress safety checks within the climbing team and staff will be there to guide and supervise them every step of the way.
