Little Rockers (ages 3-6)

Little Rockers is a program offered at Summit Carrollton, Summit Dallas and Summit Grapevine for kids ages 3 to 6, and is a fun introduction to rock climbing (will also be offered at Summit Plano). Through games, obstacles, rope climbing and bouldering, children learn about body awareness, balance, footwork, and technique. Rock climbing also teaches children about communication, problem-solving, concentration and trust. Parents are encouraged to be involved. First class is always free!

Little Rockers is $70 a month and currently only offered at Summit Carrollton, Summit Dallas and Summit Grapevine (will also be offered at Summit Plano), but includes a monthly unlimited membership to all of the Summit locations.
