Rock climbing is such a great sport that not only keeps kids healthy and active (which parents we know you love!) but more importantly, the whole family can enjoy it together!
Virginia Beach Rock Gym has an incredibly realistically textured 32 foot climbing wall with all the challenges that make the novices keen to improve, and the experts realise there is always something new with rock climbing to keep them on their toes!
They have corners, slabs, bulges, and roofs, with top ropes but mostly lead climbing.
Never rock climbed before? Don't worry! The routes are color coordinated so you know which ones you need to stay on. Experienced climbers, you know those colors which appear very infrequently are for you!
Bouldering is a great place for kids to start on, especially without experience. They stay low to the ground, with soft padding underneath for any trips - plus they don't have to worry about all the ropes and harnesses!
For those kids (especially the smaller ones) who might want to climb under direct supervision and learn all about the techniques that they will need to improve, they can try out the Climbing Intro course, which is 30 minutes of invaluable lessons to get started.
If they really take to climbing, they can join the Youth Climbing Club which is a great weekly "open gym" just for kids aged 3 - 13. Harnesses and helmets are included, and again are under the supervision of the amazing staff!
Naturally, if that special day is approaching and kids are wanting a place for them and their friends to celebrate, Virginia Beach Rock Gym have a great birthday package with optional extras which give 90 minutes of fun climbing before the party starts!
If you want a way for kids to improve their strength, coordination, balance, flexibility, and make new friends whilst having a great time - head on down to Virginia Beach Rock Gym. Parents don't forget - you can climb too! You know you want to!
