Spider Monkeys


Spider Monkeys (formerly ABC) is a unique program supporting the development of agility, balance & coordination in kids ages 4-6. Planet Rock’s Spider Monkey room uses specially designed climbing features to challenge and encourage your little climber, like our via ferrata and mini-zipline. Kids experience unique activities that encourage independence and build confidence. Climbers learn to navigate a hanging obstacle course that changes weekly, play team-building participation games and learn basic climbing techniques and skills. Confidence and self-esteem grow from this process of observation and discovery.

Climbing is a family sport – we want you involved too! Parents of enrolled Spider Monkey climbers receive a free belay lesson (just ask at the front desk) and may climb during their child’s scheduled class time.

Class sessions are divided into 3-month semesters. Enrollment opens one month prior to semester commencement, and remains open until the 3rd week of each semester. After the 3rd week, no new enrollments are accepted. Payment is due at the beginning of each semester. Questions? Contact us for more information about payment policies.

Enrolling more than one child: Register each child separately in order to ensure proper enrollment – avoid the “add” selection. Confirmation emails are sent for each child fully registered. We are available to help you out with this process – visit us at the front desk or give us a call (we can enroll your children right over the phone!)

Cancellation policy: Cancellations of classes or enrollments in programs with less than 2 weeks notice will not be refunded. If a program is in session and a member wishes to cancel in the middle of the session, they will be refunded on a pro-rated basis. They will be refunded the remaining amount of classes, minus one, from the time of notification. The date of the last attended class must be included in the written request for cancellation. There are no refunds or make ups for missed classes. Classes with low enrollment may be cancelled after the first two weeks.
