Birthday Parties

While we believe climbing is a wonderful and transformative experience for kids, our climbing gym is not an appropriate setting for a children’s birthday party. A birthday party is a great time for kids to run and play and be silly, but our gym is not the best place for it. For example, kids naturally have a hard time resisting the urge to run across our padded flooring, directly under climbers who could fall on them. We love welcoming children to the world of climbing--especially through our recreational and competitive climbing teams--but we ask that this introduction not be in the form of a birthday party.

Supporting Equitable Access to Climbing

We are especially eager to support access to the gym for local school and non-profit community groups, at reduced or no cost. If you are a local teacher or community leader working with a group of people who might benefit from exposure to climbing, please let us know this in your email.
