Summer Fun Day 2017

Last weekend we hosted our annual summer fun day at Durham Climbing Centre offering rock climbing taster sessions for just £5! We invited a host of local businesses and attractions along for the day and the crowds flooded in! The event was very well attended with 700 - 800 people enjoying the fun.

Durham Constabulary arrived with their police van and helmets for the children - it was great to see all the children climbing into the back of the police van and trying on the uniforms and handcuffs!

Many children joined our climbing coaches on taster sessions learning climbing skills and techniques. Our coaches were very impressed with the budding young climbers!
