Calling All Little Monkeys to Brooklyn Boulders

Over spring break, the girls and I had a chance to check out the new Brooklyn Builders location in Long Island City. It was their first time rock climbing, and oh my goodness... they LOVED it! I expected Millie to have fun, but I was a little surprised about how quickly Vivian took to it and kept asking to climb again. If you've got little monkeys at home, this place is for you!

After a tour of their expansive space (as a member, you have full run of the place, which includes a gym, yoga classes, co-working space, cafe & all the bouldering/rock climbing/repelling, etc you could possibly want), the girls received climbing shoes and instruction before going for it.

I'm pretty sure as much as they loved climbing up, they also liked being brought down, or "flying" as they preferred to call it. Ha! Thanks to the patient help from their climbing instructor, they got to enjoy that as well. Another thing that I thought was cool was the gorgeous art covering the walls -- all from local artists, too. Pretty rad.

Our afternoon at Brooklyn Boulders was for sure the girls' favorite activity during spring break! If you want to check out the space for yourself, they will be holding an open house for their summer programs (yes, they have kids camp!) next week, May 9th-11th from 3pm-6pm. Tours will be given at the top of every hour, and an RSVP is required. I love that they really bill themselves as a family-friendly setting, and there are tons of programs for kids throughout the year.

Climbing for the stars -- yet another fun thing for kids in NYC.

Disclosure: We were given comped day passes to check out Brooklyn Boulders. All opinions are my own.
