What is bouldering, you say?
Bouldering is climbing to lower heights and over soft mats, removing the hassle of harnesses, ropes and belaying. It is a highly social form of climbing involving physical problem solving and is also HEAPS of fun. It is a perfect vacation care activity for beginners to more advanced young climbers.
These types of school holidays activities develop social and emotional capability. As a children’s group activity naturally facilitates supportive group behaviour, communication and teamwork.
Some benefits of bouldering include building up stamina and endurance. Figuring a route to take climbing up requires logic and analysis thus improving balance and spatial awareness. Taking that route puts pressure and activates muscles and the cardiovascular system.
Bouldering is good for the body and the mind. Too much, though, like anything in excess, can be bad and may lead to injury.
