Climbing course for advanced kids in Echternach

From the 9th of November until 14th of December our experienced climbing instructors of the youth hostel in Echternach will offer a 6-week climbing course for intermediate learners on the 14 metre high, indoor climbing wall. The courses are intended for all kids aged 8 to 12 who have already gained experience in climbing and its corresponding safety procedures, as well as all participants of climbing course 1. The course takes place on Thursdays from 14:00 until 15:30. Primary aim of the activity is to encourage the enjoyment of climbing as well as exercise in general. Furthermore, concentration, trust, as well as the motivation to accept challenges is also enhanced. Acquired skills therefore may help kids in everyday life.

From a physical point of view, climbing is considered as a full-body workout because exercises involving coordination lead to an improved cooperation between different muscle groups and extremities. From a psychological point of view, the facing of challenges in climbing help enhancing self-confidence and self-assurance. The kids will be required to develop strategies in order to overcome various tasks. Furthermore, due to climbing being a sport in which progress is perceived rapidly, self-confidence is strengthened.

The 6-week advanced training course will take place if at least 6 participants register. Should the minimum amount of participants not be reached, you will be notified in due time.

Requirements:
Basic knowledge of climbing and its corresponding safety procedures


Sessions:

Mini-koala climbing course for beginners aged 5 – 7 in Echternach

Climbing is part of our human development and curiosity. Who hasn’t at some point felt the urge of climbing up a chair, wall or tree? It is therefore only natural to further support this development. Whilst having a whole load of fun, the ‘mini-koalas’ will be confronted with effort, happiness, pride, frustration and success, the sensations which make up much of our daily lives. Climbing is the perfect activity to satisfy a child’s need for movement whilst exploring their own boundaries, taking responsibility and learning to trust other people.

Course is optimised for children aged 5-7. No prior experience in climbing is required.
