On the physical side, rock climbing is a great way for kids to stay in shape. Mentally, it promotes focus and other positive attributes.

For beginners, the challenges are usually kept to a manageable level.  AquaClimb products enable the walls to be setup to accommodate all levels of climbers with adjustable hand holds that can be set in the positive (easier) position or negative (harder) position.  Even though rock climbing for kids may not seem as intense as running, it does work to keep the body healthy.
