Please contact our Climbing Team at climbing@lancaster.ac.uk to enquire about siblings who slightly span over two age groups but would prefer to join a session together.

Each of the Climbing Camps will focus on:

  • Equipment
  • Essential knots
  • Climbing safely
  • Belaying
  • Team building
  • Bouldering

Climbing games and fun activities

Participants should wear a suitable sports kit for climbing and bring water or an alternative drink, as well as a packed lunch, to their session.

Technical equipment including shoes, harnesses, and helmets are provided.

Parental consent forms will be emailed to parents and guardians and should be signed and returned before the child or young person enters the Climbing Wall. Paper copies are available from Reception before each Climbing Camp begins.

New Climbing Workshops for Adults

New for 2024, Sport Lancaster has introduced six brand-new, specialised Climbing Workshops designed to support climbers in specific focus areas, build confidence in their abilities, and learn technical fundamentals to implement into their individual climbing sessions. The workshops include bespoke tutoring in:

• Footwork

• Moving Efficiently

• Techniques

• Flexibility for Climbers

• Mental Training

• Strength & Power

• Endurance

All equipment is provided, and climbers are granted additional access to the Climbing Wall after the workshop is complete, to implement new techniques and skills learned.

The 45-minute Climbing Workshops are included in Gold Memberships, or cost £12.50 at a Pay As You Play rate. Climbers must have passed their Climbing Wall Competency Assessment and be 14+ years old to book.
