Climbing Camps for Young People

Sport Lancaster’s Half Term Climbing Camps are aimed at children and young people looking to improve their climbing ability and make new friends over the school holidays.

The Climbing Camps are split into sessions by different age groups, and the tutoring is tailored to the needs and abilities of each participant, as follows:

  • 7-9 years: 28, 29, 30 May, 9am-12pm
  • 10-13 years: 31 May, 9am-12pm

Ticket Price: £30 (£50 for two siblings)

Please contact our Climbing Team at to enquire about siblings who slightly span over two age groups but would prefer to join a session together. Please note, this isn't always guaranteed.

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 small snack, 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.

Booking in advance is advised by calling reception 01524 510600.
