Confidence. Resilience. Problem solving. What parent doesn’t want all of those skills for their kid? Add in core strength, arm and leg muscle development, and team work and you’ve got yourself one amazing Spring Break camp!
The Hive Climbing Spring Break Camps expose kids (juniors aged 6-8 years; inters aged 9-12 years) to the world of climbing. The week-long camps explore climbing through fun lessons, games, and activities. Not only will the campers improve in climbing but the camps will also encourage personal and social development.
Hive Climbing offers an exceptional student to teacher ratio. Four participants to one instructor (ages 6-8) and six participants to one instructor (ages 9-12)! Just think of how much your child will learn with that amount of attention and time devoted to their skill development.
Days will be full and active but balanced. Most of the campers’ time will be spent climbing, playing, and learning at your Hive Climbing facility, with about a quarter of the week at off-site locations such as local parks (weather dependant). The following list will help you get an idea of the important items to bring in order to stay energized and comfortable throughout the week:
What to Bring:
– A hearty and healthy lunch (those kids are going to be working hard and burning calories)
– Two healthy snacks, for both morning and afternoon (yup, lots of exercise)
– A large water bottle (1L at least)
– Appropriate athletic clothing (t-shirt, stretchy or comfortable pants/shorts – not too baggy or restrictive)
– A pair of close-toed & close-heeled running or athletic shoes for indoors, off-the-wall games
– Rainproof jacket (trips outdoors won’t be cancelled due to a little bit of rain; if it’s pouring the camp will stay inside)
– Outdoor shoes appropriate for running around on uneven group somewhere like a public park
– if the weather forecast is sunny, sunscreen (30 SPF or higher) and sunglasses or a ballcap
– A sweater and a spare pair of socks
– A backpack or bag large enough to carry all your things
Items You May Wish to Bring (not required):
– Climbing shoes & chalk bag, if you have them (rentals are provided otherwise)
Climbing is an activity I’m prioritizing for our youngest son. That kid has more confidence than is good for him and eagerly climbs everything he can glom onto. I love the fact that risk-assessment and problem-solving are part of the skills taught by Hive Climbing. Every parent is going to love a Spring Break camp that results in their child being physically exhausted and mentally stimulated. Turn off the screens and get climbing!
A note on safety and climbing: There are inherent risks involved in climbing activities, so safety is The Hive’s top priority and they manage risk in the gym with great care. Climbing in a controlled environment like The Hive is a great way for youth to learn and practice risk assessment and personal agency in decision making under the watchful, well-trained eyes of experienced instructors.
