Inclusive Climbing Taster Sessions
Climbing as an experience can be beneficial to all.
Benefits of Climbing
Climbing can help develop communication, co-ordination, muscle strength, balance and problem solving, with the added excitement of being up high.
New experiences keep the brain at its best, providing it with new information to organise and make sense of, learning new skills.
Physical and cognitive effects which can benefit from climbing include muscle spasticity; reduced endurance; concentration; memory; perceptions and judgement. Behavioural effect such as fatigue, anxiety, depression, agitation and an inability to cope can all be improved.
Inclusive Family Tasters Sessions
Inclusive taster sessions are a pathway to discovering that climbing is within the realms of everyone’s ability and focus on the fun activity of climbing and the safety skills involved.
The 1.5 hour session is ideal for participants and their family/carer/guardian to do together and climb as a group.
Each taster session will be tailored to the participant’s needs and abilities.
‘Have a Go' sessions are for over 16's with physical or non-physical special needs.
