Rock climbing is great exercise, and is a lot of fun, too! You get to challenge yourself in both ability and height, which is a great way to bond with your kids! Our kids are so used to being the novice in comparison to their parents or other adults, rock climbing is a great way for them to show us up a little. Care Bear gets a great boost of confidence when she gets to the top of the rock climbing wall!
We’re very fortunate that we have four rock climbing locations locally. I’ve been to two of them, and Care Bear and I have been to one. I only wish we lived closer, and it was a little cheaper so we could go more often! As far as I know, we don’t have any real outdoor rock climbing locations in our state, but I don’t know if we’re ready for that anyway. Until we work up the guts to do something as daring as real rock climbing, We’re perfectly happy with our indoor gyms.
Have you tried rock climbing? Check out a location near you to see if they have homeschool days! Ours has one day a month where it is discounted!
