Indoor climbing at Beacon Climbing Centre is an exhilarating activity offering exciting physical and mental challenges at a level specific to the individual. Getting involved is a great way to inspire physical activity for children of all athletic abilities by proving that exercise is actually really fun!

Climbing helps to develop movement, balance, hand eye co-ordination, team work and communication skills in an engaging environment that encourages social interaction. In addition to the physical challenge, climbing also provides a technical challenge that requires concentration, problem solving abilities and mental tenacity to succeed, as participants must discover how to successfully move between the coloured holds. It is a great activity to stimulate, motivate and enhance confidence outside of the typical learning environment.

Beacon is already used by groups and schools throughout the region as a valuable and fun educational resource, providing young people with new and exciting experiences that allow them to explore their true potential. We would love your group or school to realise the benefits of using the climbing centre too and we are keen to answer your questions, discuss your ideas and tell you more about what Beacon can offer. For further information, please call us on 01286 677 322, email [email protected] or visit anytime to have a look around.

We offer one off Climbing Experience sessions providing an exciting introduction to indoor climbing or if you would like to attend regularly, we offer groups the opportunity to develop an active interest in climbing through NICAS, the National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme.

Supported by a logbook and certificates issued upon the completion of each level, NICAS advances the participant from complete novice through to experienced climber with the development of climbing skills and techniques. Participants in the scheme can continue to progress through the NICAS levels outside of school organised sessions by joining our WEEKLY CLUBS run every week during school term time.
