AN IMPORTANT NOTE FOR PARENTS:
At The ROCK we want our Climb-it Club sessions to be as fun, enjoyable & educational as
possible, but most of all, SAFE!
In order to achieve this we need to ensure that all Climb-it Club participants are listening to
all our instructions & following the safety procedures in place. Any children who are not
listening, or playing up, will be asked to sit out for the remainder of that session. In some
instances where children are repeatedly mis-behaving we may ask for parental supervision
during the sessions to re-enforce safety issues & enable us to focus on rock climbing with
the rest of the group.
We thank you for your understanding & co-operation & look forward to a safe, exciting &
fun-filled term of rock climbing ahead!
