During & After School Programming

Our kid programs offer climbing, activities and games for kids in grades 1-12. Designed for both beginner and more advanced climbers, our programs cover a variety of topics such as: exploring the surroundings of a climbing gym, discovering movement on roped and bouldering walls, and climbing etiquette and technique.  We have a class for the littlest climbers (Mini Monkeys), school-aged kids (Picking Pebbles, On the Rocks, and Lifting Boulders), and a supervised climbing time (Belay Buddies) so that we can offer youth the opportunity to learn, grow, and progress in climbing, becoming more confident and/or capable of moving towards more intense climbs!

Arq’s Mini Monkeys (ages 3-5) is for the littlest climbers! Focussing on movement, our mini monkeys class allows your kids to climb, move, and have fun! Arq will keep the class sizes with a small ratio so that each child will receive the attention they deserve.

Parents are welcome to stay and enjoy a coffee or a couple climbs, or leave to run errands (or nap!). Pre-registration is mandatory.
