RockCraft Boulder a hit with kids, teachers and local media at expo!

More than 5,000 attendees piled into the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA)'s annual convention and expo April 7-9, and most made a beeline towards RockCraft’s fun and challenging Climbing Boulder.


RockCraft, the leading manufacturer of concrete climbing rocks for bouldering, was one of 302 exhibitors inside the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL., and drew thousands of eager kids, teachers and other attendees to their booth space, all eager to try their hand at climbing the boulder.

RockCraft's North American Sales Coordinator Cathy Reid, Designer/Operations Manager David Burns & RockCraft/Crozier Enterprises President Ken Crozier were on hand giving away IROCK T-shirts to the first 200 visitors who climbed all the way around the Granite boulder.

Media representatives from the Catholic News Service were on hand covering the event, and took notice to the smiling crowd surrounding the boulder. RockCraft’s Ken Crozier was asked to share his insights from the expo. Read his response:

One hit with youngsters at the show, including a group of Bible-era "Elijah dancers" from one Orlando school, was a rock climbing experience provided by Rock Craft, a Canada-based maker of fabricated climbing boulders for preschoolers to teens and for adults. "We normally don't come to these types of shows and part of the reason we came is that we felt it is so important to have a hands-on experience," said the company founder, Ken Crozier, who notes that his company is based in the rock climbing capital of Canada and that the product designers are themselves climbers. "You have to be able to design the boulders so that whatever age category or body type has sufficient types of holds for feet and hands," added Crozier, who said the company has some Catholic schools as clients. "We were very pleased that kids who were performing at the conference enjoyed the boulder; one particular young fellow was on the boulder for an hour and a half nonstop."
