Youth

kid climbingWe are a kid-friendly gym.  Many gyms are not.  We’d like to remain this way, and need your help to do so.  Please follow our rules and regulations and respect others while in the gym, so we can remain kid-friendly.  We consider anyone under the age of 18 a minor.  The minimum age to climb is 3 years old.  All minors under the age of 18 must bring a visitor agreement with them that’s completed and signed by their parent or legal guardian.

** Please carefully review the complete GYM POLICIES of this facility, prior to participating in climbing or any other related activities.
