Kids are natural climbers, with tons of energy. They love to climb and explore. Whether it is reaching the top of a tree or climbing on the furniture, it is a typical way to move for them. So, what better way to harness that energy than with an exciting activity? We offer private rock climbing lessons for kids from 6 years old onwards, in our Ma Niak Climbing Gym in Nivelles, just 25 minutes drive from Brussels.

We are a team of passionate instructors, who will be more than happy to introduce your kids to this sport and we will accompany them throughout their stay in our room. Your kid’s safety will be our top priority at all times. During these 1-hour lessons, a dedicated monitor will provide your children a 100% personalized coaching at the pace that best suits them.

Our classes provide a fun and safe experience and are aimed to help them discover their natural climbing skills. We offer lessons for different levels, from beginners to advanced, and for all ages, between 6 and 16 years old.

Climbing provides many physical and mental benefits for children. On the emotional level, it increases their self-confidence and concentration, helps them control their emotions and impulsivity while they also learn to make decisions and follow rules. It is also a great way to develop team skills. On the physical level, it improves their psychomotility, strength and coordination skills while enjoying a fun challenge, among many other benefits.

Although it is often linked as an extreme activity, indoor climbing is safer than many other sports. We start our lessons by climbing blocks (small walls of low height), making it possible for children to progress safely and gain in confidence.

Climbing is also a great way for kids to develop problem-solving skills: each course is a bit of a puzzle that climbers must solve in order to reach the top. This sometimes requires starting again and taking a step back to analyze the best method to use.

Finally, one of the greatest benefits of climbing is that it allows children to play a sport where the competition is only present as a challenge for themselves and not among partners.

Just send us a request if you’d like your children to enjoy an exciting and safe activity, close to Brussels. We will be happy to introduce them on the wonderful world of climbing.

About the guide

The dream of creating the Ma Niak climbing gym in Nivelles, Belgium began during a climbing trip to Yosemite. Its owners, Martin and Nicolas, shared the same values when it came to the Begian climbing scene and became convinced that a complete rock climbing gym was needed in Nivelles.

Ma Niak now offers 4.5m-high bouldering walls, 15m-high walls for sport climbing and a wide variety of climbing courses for both beginners and advanced climbers, and for adults and children. It also offer yoga lessons, a sauna and a bar, where live music is performed.
