About The Event
Activity Length: Full Day
Activity Price pp: £40
Activity Location: Mourne Mountains (Hotrock indoor wall & Altnadue quarry)
Perfect For: Young people aged 8 -14 who want to spend the day climbing, abseiling and making new pals!
This kids camp is based in and around the Newcastle area, only half an hour from Newry or Belfast.
We'll spend the morning in the indoor wall, learning lots of climbing skills, playing plenty of fun and interesting climbing games, and simply getting loads and loads of routes done! After lunch, we'll drive around to the amazing outdoor venue developed by Sport NI, at Altnadue Quarry in Castlewellan. Here we'll practice our newly learned skills on real rock, and even get the group to descend the highest part of the Quarry which is around 80 / 90 feet high!
Based in the beautiful Mournes, this climbing camp will allow maximum time climbing in a safe yet exhilarating environment that will leave your kids itching to get out again and again. Climbing is a fantastic way to teach self discipline, improve confidence across the board, challenge yourself safely, and not to mention that its a brilliant all over body work out that you hardly even notice that you're doing because its so much FUN!
