School and youth groups

Geckos provide tailor-made sessions and courses for schools and youth groups (minimum age 9 years):

  • One-off introductory sessions
  • Courses running over a number of weeks
  • Weekly clubs
  • GCSE & DofE
  • Pre-assessment training

Up to 24 young people can be taught at a time, in groups of no more than 6 per instructor. We are happy to tailor the learning outcomes to the particular group, but all will be taught the essential techniques of climbing, including all relevant safety aspects.

We have experience of teaching children and young people from a wide variety of organisations and institutions.

“Thanks again for yesterday. As always the boys gained so much out of it and left with big smiles on their faces.”
