Kids are Incredible!
Vertical Bug Children Programmes is all about helping kids achieve more than they thought was possible. We are passionate about climbing and love working with purest and incredible energy of young children. Our programmeshelp children reach new heights (literally).

Rock climbing is an incredible sport and hobby, there are an abundance of benefits for young people learning how to climb and becoming lifetime members of the climbing community. A fantastic way to learn is on a climbing programme, where actual natural experience is imparted and students can enjoy the shared camaraderie and experience of learning together.

When considering a climbing programme for your child or school, it helps to have a little information about rock climbing as a sport and what’s involved in gaining the experience. Please read the information here and the different children programmes we operate, as it will provide a clearer picture of what to expect and may assist in forming the basis for discussion regarding your requirements.
