From 1 – 2 October 2011 a unique occasion not to be missed dedicated to young climbers and their families.
Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 October 2011 at Arco, Italy, the European Youth Climbing Days return to the world's climbing capital with the tenth edition of the Rock Junior. This is the biggest climbing festival dedicated to the young generation of climbers aged between 5 and 13 who, together with their families, wish to discover the climbing game in complete safety, but also get to know the splendid nature of the small town located close to Lake Garda, in the Trentino region of Northern Italy.
Once again this unique occasion is promoted by the Association Rock Master di Arco and the ARCO CLIMBING sports club and headed by the FASI (Italian Sports Climbing Federation) and the International Federation of Sport Climbing to teach the game of climbing to the young, but above all to combine sport and education. In doing so, it exploits the mix of sport-nature and the naturalness of this sport.
As usual the green lawn at Arco will await the young climbers and their families, and it will be a true festival and fun. It will be a two-day full immersion of games and playful sports that will enable all, newcomers and experts alike, to explore the fantastic climbing world through the dimension of enjoyable games.
