Clip n Climb Sessions

December 5th 2021 – Spectrum session with Clip n Climb Cambridge

We hope that you can join us at our Spectrum dedicated, socially distanced session at Clip n Climb Cambridge.

Clip n Climb Cambridge (CnC) is where climbing centre meets theme park, and you can experience 20 unique climbing challenges that twist, turn, light and excite. Clip ‘n Climb Cambridge is the first in the East of England and is primarily suitable for everyone from 4 years upwards and is the ultimate fun and healthy activity for you to enjoy with your friends and family. Smaller harnesses are also available for toddlers as are cradles for those with significant physical disabilities.

In line with UK regulations, facemasks are recommended for spectators / those assisting in the central area as it is indoors. It would be beneficial if you were aware of how to clip/unclip your child to a climbing wall. Please only request places if you are sure of your attendance.

Please ensure that you have read all notes provided prior to requesting places.

Confirmations and the waiting list places for this event will be issued around mid-November.

Sunday, December 5th
9am – 10am
No Charge
Max 24 Children

Event Summary

The session is scheduled for between 9 am and 10 am.

You will need to be at the venue just before 9 am on the day; no transport is provided to the venue. Tuition on the centre, its facilities, PPE, and climbing safety is provided at each session’s start. There are facilities at the venue to get drinks and snacks also.

Due to present regulations because of COVID-19, the venue is operating at reduced capacity. We can take a maximum of 24 climbers per session, and our focus is purely on children climbing at this stage in the first instance. Spectators attending can join their child in the climbing area to watch and support them.

Presently, place requests are also limited to one spectator per child. There are no exceptions to this rule, and any requests over this spectator ratio will automatically be rejected. Due to the present Government guidelines, all spectators of appropriate age will be required to wear a face mask throughout the session unless exempt.

Our climbing sessions always receive a high amount of requests, and we always rotate attendance at the sessions to ensure as many families as possible have the chance to attend over time. There is always a waiting list for these sessions, and changes can occur, meaning places become available, sometimes at very short notice. Still, waiting list numbers will be slightly higher during this reduced capacity period than usual.

We have enjoyed many fantastic times with the Clip n Climb team, who have an extremely supportive team over the years.

Places Required
Please note that due to present restrictions and capacity limitations, all climbing spaces are for children only and we can only accommodate ONE spectator per child.
Please list the name of each child CLIMBING in your party and their relationship to you.
We work to a 1-2-1 ratio of climbers to spectators for these sessions at present. If for any reason your number of requested spectators is higher than your number of climbers then please provide the reason for this below. Please note that in most cases this is not something that we can accommodate due to working to set numbers for health & safety and being Covid secure. Every additional spectator place reduces the number of children that can climb.

Photo & Video Consent

Health Protection

Due to the nature of the children we support, a person can’t attend our events whilst ill.

This guidance is in line with the Health Protection Agency and similar to that of many local schools. We can’t accept a person at an event or session with sickness/diarrhoea until they have been clear of this for a minimum of 48 hours. Additionally, it is not possible to accept a person with any symptoms of Covid-19.

We hope you can understand our position on this and the caution that we must exercise.
