Holiday Clubs

If you are keen for your youngsters to have a go at climbing under the supervision of a qualified coach, or just need somewhere where they can blow off steam, then our holiday clubs are the perfect package. An hour long and instructor led, these clubs are the perfect way to pick up new skills, work on balance and co-ordination, build character and really achieve something to be proud of.

And with a fully stocked café serving delicious coffee, they give parents a chance to put their feet up and have a breather safe in the knowledge that the kids are occupied, blowing off steam and having fun.

The clubs run at the following times during half term:

10am for 5 – 9 year olds
11.30am for 10 – 16 year olds
2.00pm for 5 – 9 year olds.

Junior Introduction to Bouldering

We offer junior intro to bouldering sessions, suitable for children aged 8 to 16, who want a helping hand getting into the sport, or who want to sample some instructor-led climbing, before committing to a kids club. These sessions will help children to gain familiarity with the centre, understand how to climb safely, and provide some general tips and guidance on their climbing.

You can book your child into these sessions below. For those seeking one-on-one instruction, we also offer private lessons and longer term blocks of classes, which can be booked through emailing us at canterbury@chimeraclimbing.com.
