With the closing of most international schools during APEC, kids are sure to be overjoyed for some unexpected holiday time. But while kids are reaping the benefits of extra time off, parents may be left wondering how to entertain the young ones during the six day break.

Climbing stations with set routes are suitable for both beginning and more advanced climbing levels. Students will be fully equipped for safety and monitored by the trained staff of O’le.
Box Climbing- While attached to a top rope and wearing a helmet, students will attempt to stack and climb a wobbly tower of boxes. This challenge focuses heavily on the use of team work.
