Looking for something cool for the kids to do over the summer holidays? Then head over to Boulder Shack! We’re running some fun climbing sessions, finished off with an Under the Sea party, so there’s no chance of boredom kicking in!

An entire summer of fun from Friday 22nd July

Our Summer Holiday Fun sessions will be running for the whole of the summer, from Friday 22nd July onwards.

If you’ve never been to Boulder Shack before, it’s a great chance for the kids to try out our climbing walls and learn a new skill!

Kid-friendly taster sessions: Monday 15th – Friday 19th August, 12pm – 1pm

Book the kids onto a fun-filled taster session, running from Monday 15th to Friday 19th August from 12pm-1pm.

This 60-minute taster session is fully supervised by one of our friendly staff, who will set the children lots of sea-themed climbing challenges to try.

The sessions are £12 for juniors and climbing shoes will be provided. We recommend wearing comfy clothes and bringing a bottle of water.

MORE INFO & BOOK

You can either drop the kids off and come back later, or grab a coffee and chill out in our relaxed café area.

Induction Plus – for adults or all the family

If you’re not one to miss out on the fun, you can get involved by booking onto our 45-minute coached induction session (supervision ratios apply).

You can stay and climb for as long as you like afterwards, or get yourselves a well-deserved treat from the café.

Entry fee includes shoe hire. Sessions are £14 for an adult, £9.50 for under 18s and supervising adults are free!

There are sessions you can book on to every day over the summer, and once you’ve completed your Induction Plus, you can all come back and climb independently anytime. That’s the rest of the summer sorted!

Junior climbing clubs

If your child would like the opportunity to climb regularly, we also run a fun Junior Climbing Club on weekday evenings and weekend mornings during term time.

Our experienced instructors support each junior climber’s individual goals and create activities to bring the group together in a fun, sociable and safe environment.

Junior climbers work through NIBAS (National Indoor Bouldering Achievement Scheme) to Level 3, to help manage their progression and development. This is also the standard requirement to climb at any other climbing wall in the UK during public time.

The club is booked on a termly basis at £10 per session for ages 5-12 and at £12.50 for 13-17 year olds.

Sign up to the waiting list

Whenever a space becomes available, you will receive a notification via email. Junior Climbing Club spots are allocated on a first-come first-serve basis, to give everyone an equal opportunity of getting a space.
