ClimbTime for Kids (October through May)
ClimbTime is a climbing and self-improvement program designed especially for children from seven to ten years old.

    October through May, Tuesdays or Thursdays, 3:30-5:30 p.m.
        (FYI, during the summer, we have our Rock 'n Rage Kids' Summer Camps and parties.)

   $60 for one month (four consecutive sessions)
   $110 for two months (eight consecutive sessions)

NEW: We now accept drop-ins for ClimbTime. The cost is $18 per session.

At the Crux, we realize that children get as much concentrated instruction as they can handle each day at school. Therefore, the primary goal of ClimbTime is for kids to have fun in a safe and encouraging environment. Kids will not only have lots of fun, but learn to climb safely and courteously. Along with this, children gain self-confidence and -determination, with an emphasis on focus.

    Student-to-instuctor ratio: 4-to-1
    Gear and instruction are provided.

Pre-registration and pre-payment are required (except for drop-ins), as ClimbTime is a popular program.
