Kids

Kids are natural-born climbers who can put older folks to shame with their awesome proportional body strength and uninhibited moves. Climbing is great for kids! It helps them learn patience, persistence, and confidence in their abilities.

Here at Planet Granite we offer a variety of programs for your kids and their friends to get the next generation of climbers started right, including birthday parties, parents learn the ropes, after school clubs, winter, spring, and summer camps, and Parents’ Night Off.

First time? Check out our kids first time page for more info about your first visit to our  gym!

Learn to Manage the Ropes for your Kids

Want to bring in a small group? You can learn how to manage the ropes for them. Please note we require one adult belayer for every five kids attending an event – this ensures the kids get in ample climbing! To set up your own event, please follow this two step process.

First, you’ll need to learn how to belay by taking one of our scheduled belay lessons. In a belay lesson you’ll learn how to tie the knots, the proper safety checks and how to manage the rope for a climber. Please call to make a reservation.

Second, you must be belay “certified” before your event. This means that you’ll need to come in one more time after the lesson and before the day of your event to take a belay test and show that you’ve correctly remembered all of the safety checks and proper belay technique. On the day of your event, you will be responsible for putting harnesses on the kids and belaying for them.

Lastly, we strongly encourage you to let us know when you’ll be bringing your group in. We can help suggest some time slots so your party doesn’t conflict with others.

Please call for reservations for the belay lesson.

Cost is $30 per parent/child pair. There are no fees or reservations required for taking your belay test. Regular Child Pass rates apply to any additional children under 13.

Field Trips

Private parties at Planet Granite are a great option for school groups or organizations looking for a unique field trip to the Presidio! Event Staff will manage the ropes for a two hour event, creating the most memorable field trip of the year. Please call (415) 692-3434 for more information on scheduling a private party at a custom time.

Scouts & Nonprofits

Scout groups and nonprofit organizations are eligible for a discount on private parties at custom times that end by 4pm Monday- Friday; this discount does not apply to other times. Reservations required. Please call to schedule: (415) 692-3434.

We also offer private belaying for your kids. Call your local Planet Granite to reserve a private session.

Waiver

Very Important!

If the parent or guardian will not be present, please bring a photocopy of their government issued photo identification (for signature verification). Please note: legal guardians must present proof of guardianship to sign a child’s waiver.

Parents Learn the Ropes

Parents who want to manage the ropes for their child 13 and under can book a regular belay lesson which will include:

  • One lesson for a climber (13 or older) to learn to belay
  • One day pass for a child (12 or younger) to climb after the lesson*
  • Harnesses and shoes for both participants included

*Each additional child needs a day pass and gear rentals.

If your child is 13 or over, they are old enough to learn to belay! Book them a spot so they can learn the ropes too!

Parents are welcome to bring their kids into the gym while they take their belay lesson provided the children are always supervised. We recommend:

  1. Book-a-Climb Sessions – During the weekend, we offer one hour group sessions for climbers looking to have our staff belay them. While you learn the ropes in your belay lesson, your kids can climb with one of our staff members! After your lesson and the kids drop-in session, you can continue managing the ropes for your child at no extra charge. To book a drop-in climbing session, call us at 415-692-3434. Cost: $25/hr, for kids 13 and under. $35/hr, for everyone 14 and older.
  2. Bring in another adult to supervise – Parents learning to belay for kids who are not in drop-in climbing can bring in an additional adult to supervise at no extra charge.  Additional adults who will be climbing or using the gym will need to purchase a day pass.
  3.  Bring your child with you to class – If your child would like to check out what you are doing, they are welcome to observe! Especially for older children, they might enjoy learning more about what goes into belaying. The first 3/4ths of the class, we will go over the very basics of managing the ropes and climbing, and there will be an opportunity for a little climbing, but mostly this is focused on knots and safety. There may not be much that would interest younger climbers for the first 45-50 minutes, which is why we recommend Drop-In Climbing for kids while parents are in class!
