What is there to do?

Do you know what we LOVE about rock climbing? It's SO much fun, it's great to keep you active and healthy, and it's so great for improving skills such as balance, strength and coordination. Sounds pretty great to us!

If you're in Massachusetts, then Central Rock Climbing Gym might just be the place for you if that all sounds like your kind of family day out!

Rock climbing is a great sport for the whole family, and the staff at Central Rock Climbing Gym are on hand to really give you the best time possible. They have state of the art facilities, including some pretty cool climbing walls!

The routes on the wall are color coded, so you know that you will be starting on ones suitable for your level. It's also so rewarding for kids when they can see themselves improving, and slowly working their way up to the harder levels.

If you are just starting out, or want to improve what you already know, it's worth checking out the classes and lessons that you can take at the gym. There are beginners classes, as well as women's technique classes, lead climbing introductions, advanced classes, and even yoga and fitness classes!

If you are really taking to climbing, the gym has competitions across the year, so you can really see what you are made of. We think you'll do pretty well!

Parents, don't worry. When your kids start to climb, they will receive a safety briefing and technique instruction, so you know they will be safe. They will also be attached to the wall with ropes, so no matter how high they get to, they won't have to worry.

So why not take the family to climb new heights on your next family day out. You never know what you might achieve!

Any top tips?

They have a section of the gym dedicated to child friendly climbing! The walls are shorter, so it's easy for the kids to communicate to their belayer, and thus feel more comfortable!
