Holds for Schools
There's nothing we love more than seeing the next generation of climbers on the wall. ICP's new Holds for Schools program is aimed at providing schools with quality climbing holds that make it easy for children to learn.
"We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths."
Rock climbing offers loads of benefits for kids - physically, mentally and socially. It teaches hand-foot-eye coordination, and increases problem solving abilities. It's a great whole-body workout and will help to build a child's strength.
Rock climbing is also a great way to build children's confidence and self esteem in a fun environment. It will help improve their communication and listening skills, and they will learn to overcome their fears.
Often the holds that schools have for their climbing walls are difficult to climb on. This can discourage children and make it a less-than-ideal experience. We want to help encourage kids to climb and make it easy for them to learn.
