chimera climbing for kids

kids bouldering

Kids are very welcome at Chimera Canterbury - we love introducing the sport of climbing to the next generation.

Bouldering is a fantastic thing to do with the kids on a rainy day, and builds many skills such as co-ordination, flexibility and problem solving. And given it is now in the Olympics, bring your child along today and who knows where their journey might lead...

Neither the adults or kids need to have been before, simply turn up, register and start having fun. You will be asked to watch a short safety video and can ask the friendly staff any questions you might have.

We run birthday parties for kids too - these are an hour long and involve games, instruction and lots of laughs. To learn more about parties, please email:

Bouldering is not to be confused with soft play - which is why all children aged 15 and under need to be supervised by an adult at all times

Our lower age limit to climb is 5 years old. Under 12’s can climb until 6pm in the week and 2pm at weekends

One adult can supervise two children at a time

If the adult wants to climb, then they can only supervise one child

If you have any questions, feel free to give us a ring on 01892 457294
