Foster invites you to come in and have a look, see the facility and ask questions. Parents can climb with their kids, or there is also a spot for them to hang out and relax.
"I really liked having my birthday there because I got to climb high," said Nicholas. With 15 foot walls with bridges and challenges, it was a great place to keep the children active.
"Trust your child. They know their comfort level," advises Dominic's mom, Danielle DeGraaf.

There are a few places in the Valley where your family can try out bouldering. Annapolis Royal, West Kings and Northeast Kings schools all have climbing walls and offer afterschool programs for students of those Nike Uptempo Pink And White schools.
"Plan to have your kids want to come back again," says Foster.

Foster explains that there are lots of safety measures in place at the climbing walls. At the Adventure Gym, the floor is covered in over 14 inches of thick foam and there are other movable mats for extra padding. Staff supervise climbers and explain safety rules upon arrival and provide tips.
Bouldering is a very individualized sport and it allows people to feel they are accomplishing things they set out to do. Conner says it also allows youth who don't fit in with the traditional or team based sports to feel like they have a place where they belong and are making Nike Tech Fleece Joggers Navy
It's true. As Daniel Hennigar, nine, says, "I liked trying to get to the top and I want to go back and try again."
Lia Glover celebrated her son Nicholas Hennigar's seventh birthday at the Adventure Climbing Gym.
Eight year old Dominic Sherrard of Centreville says, "you need to use all your upper body."
Are your kids climbing the walls
Because of this, bouldering is best suited for children aged five or six and up.
"As parents, we managed all other aspects of the party such as preparing food and drinks and helping to supervise the climbers," says Glover. "You have to be hands on and alert all the time."
Glover suggests keeping the size of the party down to eight kids or less and a minimum age of six.
Bouldering includes muscular endurance, flexibility, along with problem solving on the fly, for a full body workout says Jon Foster, owner of the Adventure Climbing Gym in Greenwich.

There is also the Annapolis Valley Climbing Club (AVCC) which runs on Sundays and uses both the West Kings and NKEC walls. The AVCC is open to non students of the schools. According to Conner, there has also been some discussion about starting a few community bouldering nights. Roo's Playhouse in the Greenwood Mall has a mini wall for smaller children to try out when supervised, or head to the Adventure Climbing Gym with older children.
"Kids can't recall some of the house rules and it would definitely make it harder to manage many younger children."
