Castle Wild is an after school club which takes place on Wednesdays (term-time only) from 4.45 - 6.30pm, for children aged 7 - 13.
The structure of each session follows a natural rhythm that incorporates sharing and listening as a group, playing and making up games to warm up and to hone our animal senses, themed focussed activities such as foraging, bushcraft, and craft-making, and learning through free play; making, building, imagining, observing and discovering the wonders of nature.
As most of you know, there's a little more to climbing than pulling hard and having strong arms. Having a good range of motion and flexibility is key to successful movement, yet is frequently overlooked.
Join Sandra on 11th February & 11th March to develop your yoga practice and reap the benefits for your climbing too! The workshops will focus on strength, flexibility, balance, body positioning, as well as your head game!

Round 2 of the Paraclimbing Series will take place here on Tuesday 17th October.
Open to all aspiring paraclimbers, the BMC and Climb Scotland Paraclimbing Series is a friendly competition aimed at giving people an authentic competitive experience. This series is organised by the BMC, Climb Scotland, Manchester Climbing Centre, Newcastle Climbing Centre, Edinburgh International Climbing Arena and the Castle Climbing Centre, London.
The series will also act as a basis for talent identification and selection for the GB Paraclimbing Team.
As autumn arrives the Castle is becoming increasingly busier and lively. In the next few weeks you may see a lot of fresh faces and keen novices hanging off the walls. Every October universities from around London, such as UCL,LSE will be bringing new climbers to the Castle to let them try climbing for the first time. We are delighted that they have chosen the Castle as a space for their new climbing club members to have a go and learn the ropes in a safe environment.
A great way to complement your climbing training. Sessions are run by various independent yoga teachers on weekday evenings and weekends. For more information, contact them directly via email or weblink.
