Event description

Description

These events are a continuation of the Gilford Youth Climbing Club sessions which have been running for 10 weeks during the school term at Gilford Community Centre. The Summer sessions are being subsidised and supported by Mountaineering Ireland in the aim of establishing a sustainable Youth Climbing Club, afiliated to Mountaineering Ireland and lead by a committee of interested parents.

Who is this for?

Families with children who would like to continue climbing over the Summer months with Gilford Youth Climbing Club or families who would like to give climbing a try. These events are open to any families with an interest in climbing and have purchased the required* tickets.

What is included in a ticket?

  • Entry to Gilford Community Centre Climbing Wall from 18:30 to 20:30 on the dates of your tickets.
  • Limited equipment hire - harnesses, shoes, chalk bags and belay devices.
  • Supervision from a qualified climbing wall instructor, employed by Mountaineering Ireland.
  • Gilford Centre Staff and Mountaineering Ireland Volunteers may also be along to help out with these sessions.
  • Fun climbing games for kids
  • Learn to belay for parents

*Important Information for Parents

Parent/s must attend these sessions to supervise the behaviour of their children and are encouraged to partake in the session through climbing themselves or learning to belay. Parent/s must also purchase a ticket in order to attend. One parent may supervise a maximum of four children. For example, if there are five children in your family then two parents will have to buy tickets for each session and supervise your children for the duration of the session.

If you enjoy climbing indoors then why not try outdoor rock climbing on the 31st July and the 28th August at Altnadue Quarry, just outside Castlewellan with the Gilford Youth Climbing Club? Only a 35 minute drive from Gilford! Tickets available here.
