VICTA will be scaling new heights as we host the first of our Sports Taster Days at the Big Rock Hub Climbing Centre in Milton Keynes, the 2020 European City of Sport!

Under the watchful eye of the Big Rock instructors, you will get the chance to learn the ropes and climb a range of routes. You can have a go at, and your instructors will show you the basics of, roped climbing and bouldering (climbing on shorter walls without ropes).

The emphasis is on fun and trying as many climbs as possible – in no time at all you will be at the top of the wall and hooked!

The day will consist of 2 sessions, and you can apply to be booked onto either the morning or afternoon session for the duration of 2 hours. All equipment is provided, and your instructor will show you how to manage all the safety equipment.

There is a cafe on site where parents can wait and chat while the children are enjoying their session.
