4. Improving physical fitness
5. Productive channelling of youthful energy
6. Burns calories

These benefits of rock climbing are further amplified by our well-trained instructors who not only have the passion for the sport but also the patience and skills in handling kids while ensuring safety. With the well-maintained and checked equipment specially catered for kids, parents can have more confidence in allowing their kids to reach for greater heights!

 

What?
The Rock School is Singapore’s first climbing centre designed, constructed and dedicated to kids of ages 4 to 14 years old. We aim to promote the sport of Rock Climbing in a fun and safe environment.

Besides training kids to rock climb in a safe and fun environment, educational elements are also included in activities and programmes. In addition, time for family bonding is a significant part of The Rock School focus.
