What's the minimum age for children to climb at Rockreation?
Children of any age can come to Rockreation! However, there are a few age restrictions on different areas of the gym:
- The minimum age OUR STAFF can teach or belay is 6 years old.
- Children under 6 can be belayed by a belay-certified adult (see next question below).

Can I bring a child under 6 years old to climb?
Children under 6 are more than welcome in the facility but must be belayed by a belay certified adult. Belay courses are available three times a week if you would like to become certified to belay your youngster.
