Climbing Wall

Policies

Family Policy & HoursThe Recreation Center has specific guidelines for family members under the age of 18, to ensure a safe and enjoyable environment for all of our members. Listed below are some policies to help everyone who is eligible use the Recreation Center.

  • Children ages 6-13 are allowed to join their parent, who is a member, during Family Hours, at no additional cost, for activities in the four court gymnasium, on the jogging track, or in the climbing wall. (All other areas are have too many safety risks to allow youth to participate.)
  • Children ages 5 and under are NOT allowed to enter the facility during Family Hours. (This is a health and safety risk for these young children.)
  • The parent must be present and actively involved with the child in the chosen activity. (Instructional youth climbing programs are offered.)
  • A member may NOT bring children with them who are not their legal dependents. (Spaces within the Recreation Center can be reserved for private events for these types of gatherings.)
  • Guest Passes can be purchased for use during Family Hours, but each adult guest and each child guest must purchase an individual guest pass at the current rate.
  • Dependents age 14 and older are eligible to purchase a membership to the Recreation Center but those who are age 14-16 must be supervised by a parent at all times.
  • Dependents age 17 and older are eligible to purchase a regular Recreation Center membership.
