If your child is interested in climbing, walking or mountaineering, then read this brilliant free BMC booklet which explains the benefits, and risks, of these activities.
The booklet introduces climbing, walking or mountaineering along with the risks and benefits so that parents can be better informed about these exciting activities.
The guide is written with the non-climber in mind. So complex or specialist terms, which might be new to some parents, are explained clearly and simply without jargon.
The booklet is very short and explains and outlines all the main activities, both indoor and outdoor varieties. There are also sections on child protection, parental responsibility, the nature of clubs, awards and qualifications, and the role of the BMC. As well a list of extremely important questions a parent can ask anyone offering to take their child climbing, walking or mountaineering.
The booklet is extremely useful for parents and anyone who takes under-18s climbing, hill walking and mountaineering with parental consent.
It is available as a free download or to buy as a printed booklet in the BMC online shop.
