CANCELED – Climbing camp during the All Saints’ Holiday

The APEEE extracurricular activities service offers students from P3 to S7 a 5 half-day bouldering camp during the All Saints’ Day holidays, in collaboration with the Petite Ile bouldering gym. An opportunity to discover bouldering, a type of climbing very suitable for children.

What is bouldering?

Boulder climbing is a sport discipline and a type of climbing that consists of climbing low boulders. Generally speaking, the surface to be climbed does not exceed five metres in height and allows you to fall back to the ground with a reduced risk of injury. The bouldering is therefore practiced without the classic climbing belay equipment, such as rope, carabiners, harnesses.
