From there, the project went from strength to strength bringing in more and more supporters as well as local organisations including Climbing Anchors, Bellingen Shire Council, CEL, schools and the Bellingen Shire Youth Services among others.
Who Runs It?
It is managed and supported by local volunteers. Organisationally, the Bellingen Mentor Group is auspicing the project and operationally it is supported by the Bello Youth HUB.
Can I Use it?
Yep. It is open to individuals, families, youth and even groups. Note all young people under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
Does it cost anything to use it?
Yes (and No). The intention is for users to contribute to the ongoing costs of maintenance, upkeep and evolution of the wall by paying to use it.
Therefore, if you are a regular user you can pay a Annual Membership or you can pay a per-usage fee (or recommended donation J) for occasional use.
There are also free sessions for our youth.
Just go to the Membership & Fees page for more information.
When is it open?
The Wall can only be opened when there is supervision present so this really depends on the availability of volunteer Supervisors. At this time, there are sessions planned for after school Tuesday to Friday and it is likely to be open evenings during the week.
Check out the Session Times link on the side of this page, or have a look at the Webcam page. It will show you if anyone is currently using the wall.
Can I help as a Supervisor or Volunteer?
You bet, in lots of different ways! Just call in and see the team at the Bellingen Youth HUB for details.
Can I make a group booking?
Organisations and groups can use the facility too. Contact the Bellingen Youth HUB for details.
I’m really into climbing! How do I sign up for membership?
That’s great! Here’s a printable copy of the form to sign up. As covered in other questions, fees do apply.
