INDOOR CLIMBING WALL

Rock UK Frontier Centre has a fantastic 25ft high indoor climbing wall which has ten climbable graded routes and is suitable for all ages.

The indoor wall gives groups coming to the centre the option to climb indoors or outdoors. It’s great for beginners to learn to climb and belay or for climbers to improve their technique. The indoor climbing wall is also available as an activity option for birthday parties.

Spotlight Activity with MAF (Mission Aviation Fellowship)

Frontier Centre is working in partnership with MAF (Mission Aviation Fellowship) to bring you the exciting Spotlight activity Above and Beyond. Using a real aircraft (supplied by MAF) you get to step inside the mind of a MAF pilot as we re-create the atmosphere of a humanitarian mission to help you understand the life saving work provided by MAF.

MAF is a Christian charity that provides humanitarian aid in some of the most hostile environments in the developing world. They fly 135 aircraft across over 35 countries delivering food, water, medical items and both physical and spiritual care to those in need. For more information on the work that MAF do visit Above and Beyond Young MAF
