Chimera offers a range of lessons and clubs for children who want to learn more about climbing. These classes run year-round and are divided into three categories:
LITTLE MONKEYS (5-7 YEARS OLD)
ROCK NINJAS (8-11 YEARS OLD)
CHIMERA ACADEMY (12-16 YEARS OLD)
By signing your child up, they are able to learn and practice their skills in a controlled environment under the guidance of a qualified instructor. At Chimera we work though the ‘NIBAS’ programme (National Indoor Bouldering Award Scheme), meaning your child has the opportunity to work towards certificates and could even be signed off to climb without supervision at both of our walls and others that participate in the NIBAS programme.
In the summer term, Chimera runs rock climbing clubs outdoors on the local southern sandstone - a great introduction into the world of climbing on real rock.
Clubs are priced at £56 per month, which covers entrance, shoe hire and instruction and equates to £14 per lesson. Classes are capped at 8 climbers. Outdoor costs vary.
