I remember my childhood as the monkey of our neighborhood here in San Jose. I was constantly terrifying my friends’ parents, as well as my own, by climbing everything in sight. Trees, play structures, furniture, you name it – I climbed it. I’m sure this sounds familiar to many parents out there. Children are filled with a sort of rambunctious energy, and it can often translate into death defying climbing stunts.
Luckily, The Studio Climbing offers a program for kids to channel their inner monkey in a positive and safer environment: Kid’s Belay! Held every weekend from 12-4pm, trained and energetic staff are on hand to belay groups of up to 5 kids as a time for a one-hour time slot. It costs $25 per child, which includes a harness rental and time with our instructor. Kid’s belay is the perfect option for kid’s to explore the world of rock climbing as an exciting and healthy activity. It’s also an excellent option for parents who need an hour to run errands, grab coffee with a friend, or simply enjoy a little time for themselves. The best part? Kids love it!
