Feedback from Teaching Indoor Climbing to Children

Here are my favourite 10 comments from the children I taught on a summer program at the Lancaster University Climbing Wall. At the end of each course of five sessions, I asked them what they enjoyed and what they learned. In no particular order…

  1. I learned how to climb safely.
  2. I enjoyed getting better at climbing.
  3. I learned it is important to pay attention.
  4. I enjoyed exploring something new.
  5. I learned not to give up.
  6. I enjoyed achieving my goals.
  7. I learned things can be easier than you think.
  8. I enjoyed being encouraged.
  9. I learned to use my eyes and look.
  10. I enjoyed doing something different.
