Children ages 4 to 6 can sign up for Rock Out Climbing Gym's first ever Kinder Klimb, a new skill-based program that features Rock Out's newly installed Top Ropes.
Taught by Rock Out's trained instructors, each hour-long session is limited to six spots, giving participants a one-on-one guided climbing experience.
Sessions will be held from 10-11 a.m. or 11 a.m. to noon beginning Sept. 1. Additional dates can be found on Rock Out Climbing Gym's Facebook page. Cost is $20 per child.
"We are excited to introduce our Kinder Klimb program for those young climbers who may be intimidated by the height of our walls, or just looking for a little more security while climbing," said Kenneth Sheyka, owner of Rock Out Climbing Gym. "Kinder Klimb provides an opportunity for the entire family to participate in the activity of climbing."
Designated for younger climbers, Kinder Klimb utilizes routes designed with a child's size and strength in mind and incorporates top ropes to help overcome unique challenges. Climbing is proven to help with younger children's development to include their spatial awareness, motor skills, and problem-solving skills.
Parents interested in signing up their children for Rock Out's Kinder Klimb program can contact the gym at 850-837-0526. Sign-ups are recommended but not required. Same day spots are available on a first come, first serve basis.
