I recently helped out with a friends sons birthday party, by transporting a very excited group of 11 year old boys to Camp 5 indoor climbing centre at One Utama.
Camp 5 is a state-of-the-art indoor climbing facility which can cater to all Levels. They offer basic wall courses, taster sessions right upto private coaching. One of their Mottos is ‘everyone can climb’ and based on the varying heights and difficulties of the many different walls, this would definitely seem to be the case. Though I must add that I did not think it necessary to prove their motto correct and most importantly my son would have found this very uncool!
When you arrive, you’re asked to fill out a standard waiver form and they then provide you with climbing shoes, harness and helmet. Safety is obviously very Important and they made sure the children were all very aware of this via the initial safety talk from the instructor. Once this was over there was no stopping them, while under guidance all the time, they tackled lots of the walls and cheered each other on with encouraging words. Of course there was also lots of discussion about who got to the top the fastest and via which route!
As this was part of the birthday package that is offered, the children had drinks, homemade beefburgers, pizza, popcorn and fruit. To top that all off, they also provided the beautiful homemade chocolate cake, complete with a decorative mini climbing wall on the top. If you’re looking for a venue which takes care of everything and removes the stress completely, then this would be it!
I have to mention the lovely cafe where we sat happily, watching the children climb. It serves a variety of drinks, smoothies and juices (all freshly prepared) and has a healthy homemade menu and daily specials board. I was particularly drawn to the
Vietnamese chicken salad!
