    Comment:  I’m so glad to hear that - and I’m not surprised. Brooklyn Boulders has always been really wonderful to our community. We had a similar situation and they not only quickly resolved it but also generously donated items for our school silent auction. Thank you for following up!

    Comment:  Thanks to everyone who messaged me with suggestions and sympathy! I'm really happy to report that we've been able to resolve this with Brooklyn Boulders. Their employees were thoughtful and attentive, and they worked with us to find a solution for the credit that worked for us. My experience is so often the opposite-- that the company couldn't care less-- so this stands out as an excellent business practice. Kudos to them!

    Comment:  My son loves to climb. He went to BKB as part of his afterschool program in 6th grade and attended summer camp two years ago. The staff are very friendly and helpful and he improved his climbing skills. He likes going to the park across the street for lunch and having a chance to play outdoors. He made new friends easily.If you could change anything, what would it be? n/aAge of child: 11Based on a Summer 2017 experience

    Comment:  Camp Brooklyn boulders DeGraw/3rd ave Day Care or Sleep Away-- Day campProgram: Summer adventure week Age of Child: 6 Likes: It was a great atmosphere, great instructors. The kids spent most of the day on the climbing wall so they built confidence and a solid skill set quickly. We ended up having to do the extended day - i was worried it might be too much but I couldn't get my son out of there even at 6pm! What would you change? Nothing Would you send your child(ren) again? Yes Do you recommend? Highly recommend Do you have any other information to add?Review from 2012 Summer Camp Experience

    Comment:  LIKES: The staff belayers were terrific with the kids. We had three staff members for 12 children so all of the kids had plenty of climbing time. What you'd change: It appears you can now book your party online, which was not an option when I booked this party. That seems like it should make booking easier -- under the old process you wound up emailing back and forth with the party coordinator and then booking with the front desk by phone. My only complaint is when we arrived the tables and chairs had not been set up in the party room. This meant that we were busy setting up as our guests arrived. Not a huge deal, but it would have been more relaxing as the hosts to have the set-up all done before the party started. All in all we were happy with the party and the kids had a blast. Do you recommend (High Rec, Rec, Rec w/ Reservations, Do Not Rec)? Recommend

    Comment:  My daughter isn't sporty but really enjoyed taking 3 of her friends to Brooklyn Boulders for her 9th birthday. One of her guests was 6 and had a good time too.

    Comment:  Brooklyn Boulders! Fantastic and huge indoor rock climbing facility that will take your kids on a day to day and even last minute basis. They even have after care (more climbing and sometimes your kid may be the only one there so it's like a private climbing session!) til 6 pm for just an extra $10. Provides snacks and is super fun. Great, energetic staff, always enough trained climber counselors no matter the group size. My daughter goes all the time. They also give sibling discounts.
