Devons Most Exciting Adventure Centre

Groups & Schools

Climbing is rewarding, educational and fun!

Schools

Rock and Rapid is the perfect setting for fun and exciting group activity days and school climbing sessions in Devon. We offer a huge variety of sessions for young people aged six and upwards, from rock climbing to abseiling, low ropes to watersports. The most popular group activity we offer at our adventure centre in North Devon is climbing for schools.

School climbing lessons are a great way to develop fitness, teamwork and communication skills among pupils in an enjoyable and exhilarating environment.

Climbing is Tailored to Suit You!

We are here to help you tailor activities to your needs, from a one-off climbing and abseiling session, to a structured program running over a series of weeks or months. Rock and Rapid can cater for GCSE and A Level syllabuses if required, and can supplement regular indoor sessions with outdoor trips in the summer months. Sessions can be run for groups as small as two up to as many as ninety climbers. Sessions are all fully supervised by qualified instructors, ensuring that each child receives the encouragement and attention they require.

Climbing is Nationally Accredited!

If you wish, your group can also work on NICAS, the nationally accredited scheme recognising achievement in indoor climbing. This scheme consists of five levels, ranging from learning the basics to becoming a competent lead climber. Rock and Rapid Adventures are the NICAS Primary Centre for North Devon.

Climbing is inclusive!

The instructing staff at Rock and Rapid Adventures are trained to work well with a wide range of groups including those with learning or behavioral difficulties, and those with a wide range of physical disabilities.

What people say rock and rapid

"Great rainy day activity for all the family"

Rock and Rapid testimonial

As a family of five who like to try new things, I can’t recommend this enough. The staff member who helped us was top class. Friendly, accommodating and keen. Although, we were all at different levels of experience, some of us complete notices at climbing – we all managed to spend an enjoyable couple of hours.
