The Nitty Gritty

Drop-ins: If you aren't ready to commit, we encourage you to come to the gym and try out climbing. We are no longer offering drop-ins mid-session, sorry!

Missed Classes: Due to the small size and structure of our programs, it has become difficult to offer make-up days. We are happy to offer 1 free pass to the gym per session for missed days. We have tried to alleviate some of the stress by making the climbing team the same price for 2 or 3 days, but this is the only program we are able to offer it for.

Refunds: Cancellations made 2 weeks prior to first class are refundable less a 30% administrative fee. Cancellations made 1 week prior to the first day of class may receive a 50% house credit which may be used for any gym programs, membership, and open gym climbing passes. We are not able to refund or credit any cancellations made within 1 week prior to a class.

Food/Drink: Please make sure your kids come with snacks – we also offer an assortment of snacks that can be purchased or invoiced to your child’s account. If you would like your child to be able to invoice snacks to their account please let us know so we can set this up.

COVID & Masks We are continuing to follow CDC guidelines and local ordinances regarding masks. Please send your child with a mask until further changes are announced.
