Few schools are lucky enough to possess their own climbing facilities, and of those that do, even fewer happen to have teachers with Climbing Wall Instructor qualifications. However, as rock climbing has grown in popularity over the years, more and more schools are recognising the huge potential that climbing can have for their students’ development and wellbeing.
Here at Rock and Rapid Adventures, we’ve been observing the benefits of climbing for children for many years, whilst leading our school activity sessions, kids’ climbing clubs and school residentials in North Devon. So, whether you’re a parent looking for a well-rounded after school activity for your child, or a teacher searching for something a little bit different for this term’s P.E. lessons, check out our infographic to find out the key ways in which climbing benefits children, with some fascinating statistics from studies in schools!
