At Brooklyn Boulders Somerville, we seek to change the game when it comes to physical and mental education for youth. We’re meticulous about creating holistic curricula that is experiential and interactive, on and off the walls. Children will walk away with new friends, strong self-confidence and the will to try, fail, and try again. Learning problem solving, concentration, movement and spatial awareness are just the beginning.
Our team is experienced climbers with more than enough energy to keep your kids engaged and excited this isn’t your typical babysitter-type team. A 1:5 ratio allows the counselors to get to know their kids, make sure their needs are met and create memories that will last forever.
The BKB Team is mandated reporters and CPR, AED and First Aid certified.
At Kids Academy, we approach climbing with a twist — we integrate classroom-style, process oriented learning into a climbing environment. Our new curriculum is based off four aims: Be Relentless, Get Weird, Make it Beautiful and Attitude is Everything — they teach children the mental, physical and social aspects of climbing as they apply to life. Activities include bouldering, roped climbing, stretching, and climbing games geared towards accomplishing the goal of the day.
