Kids

Climbing is a great sport for parents and children to enjoy together and at Yonder we are passionate about encouraging children to learn about climbing and all its physical, social and mental health benefits.

 

When can our little ones climb?

0-4 years

Good News, we are now allowing this age group to join the fun.

We have now introduced a whole new Yellow circuit that is

super fun and suitable for the little ones!

The one thing we do insist on for everyone’s safety is that the

guardian / parent attend an adult induction without the child so we can

fill you in on the safety information without too much distraction. This will then enable the adult to supervise a 0-5 year old on a one-to-one basis.

When the child is climbing we insist the adult is not climbing and only supervising.

Entry is £5 for the child and the parent comes in for free.

We look forward to seeing the little ones on the wall if done so in the safest way possible.

5-17 years

Can climb under adult supervision with a maximum of 2 children to 1 adult. The adult must be a competent climber or have completed one of our inductions.

 
 

More about 5-17 years old

You are welcome to bring your little ones in for a Boulder. We just need to be sure of a few things!

If you wish to supervise children from 5-17 years old you will need to be an experienced competent climber (regularly climbing). Our Duty managers will be able to ascertain if they are comfortable with the level of supervisor experience. If you do not have the necessary experience to supervise we advise that you do one of our inductions and climb a few times to get used to our centre and bouldering as a sport.

We also offer Family Inductions that will teach you all there is to know about climbing safely with your little ones. Please see the section below for more detail, speak to our friendly reception team or email info@thisisyonder.com to organise this.

We ask that for children between 5-12 you are in arms reach at all times as children can very quickly get themselves into a dangerous position. That might be climbing up high and getting stuck, or running under other climbers and potential getting landed on, not good for anyone!!!

The supervising adult is welcome to climb, however the children must be under control and only one adult or child can be on the wall at once.

Bouldering can be a dangerous sport and for this reason we must be very careful with our Kids Policies. Safety first Kids (and adults of course!)

5-17 year old’s can climb for £7.50

 

 

 
 

Family Inductions

This is an Introduction class that’s perfect for a family.

What could be better as a family than to learn and progress in a whole new activity.

These fun sessions are our way of ensuring children can safely find their feet in the world of climbing.

We also find that climbing alongside children is a brilliant way for adults finding their way into the sport.

Family Induction Details

-1 hour with one of our dedicated climbing coaches.

-£50 for a family of 4 (2 Parents & 2 Children)

-After this is an extra £10 per Adult or Child

-When the Induction is done you are welcome to climb as a family for as long as you please.

-Family inductions must be specifically organised through our reception team. Come and see us at the centre, or email info@thisisyonder.com to book a spot.

-Please allow 20 minuets before your session to get you all signed in and ready to go.

Kids Squad

From November, we’ll be running a Kid’s Squad on Saturday or Sunday mornings for children who want to improve their skills and climb through the grades by learning from one of our experienced coaches.

We are planning the details of these at the moment so please email in to let us know if you would rather Saturday or Sunday mornings.  

We will release more information as soon as possible but for now the squad will be available to any children aged 6 - 15 years.

 
 

Conditions

All under 18s must be accompanied by an experienced adult whilst climbing at Yonder.

 

Experienced teenage climbers (between 14 - 18yrs) can apply to climb unsupervised but must first pass an individual assessment by a member of staff.

 

If deemed to be experienced enough by our Duty Manager in the building Each adult can Supervise 2 children aged 5 and above.

 

Kid’s membership packages can be purchased in person from reception where appropriate.

As mentioned above we are currenlty making changes as fast as we can to be able to provide FAMILY INDUCTIONS but a the moment we will have to ask you to be patient.

We have a whole BEGINNERS CIRCUIT being sent our way. We can’t wait to get this set up and welcome the children with wide arms!
