Program Offerings During COVID-19
We are running indoor camps this summer!
Kids will have the opportunity to not only climb but participate in outside games, arts and crafts and field trips to the park. Groups will meet all state and county guidelines and will be kept small.
We are running outdoor camps this summer!
We will be keeping our groups small, in accordance with all state and county guidelines. Rather than meeting at the gym each morning, parents will be responsible for dropping campers off at the climbing area at 9:30am, weather permiting. On inclement weather days, camp will be canceled. All campers will wear masks, have their temperature taken, and sanitize their hands upon arrival.
We will be offering Monkey, Super Monkey, and Club classes this summer on Saturdays and Sundays. All classes will be limited to 4 participants, and will be drop-off only. Programming has been limited to two classes per time block. Each participant will be subject to a health screening upon arrival.
We have made adjustments to Open Gym in response to COVID-19. Open Gym will now be available every Saturday and Sunday on a reservation-only basis. Three small groups of up to three participants each may reserve an hour and a half time block.
Celebrate your climber’s birthday during COVID-19! We are now accepting reservations for hour and a half private gym sessions for small groups of up to 8 guests, including supervising adults.
We are now offering gift certificates directly through our Customer Portal!
Gym Policy Updates
Who Can Visit
At this point, only children currently enrolled and participating in a Camp, Class, Team, Birthday Party, or Open Gym may enter the gym. Parents will not be allowed to enter the gym unless they are participating in a Birthday Party or Open Gym with their children and have previously made a reservation.
Numbers will be kept small to meet all state and county guidelines. At this time capacity is limited to 10 people in the gym.
Arrival and Pickup
Early arrival is requested so that a health screening can be completed. An ABC staff member will be stationed outside to conduct the screening, including a temperature check. Staff will make sure climbers are properly wearing their face masks before entering and immediately wash their hands. We will have designated social distancing spaces marked on the entrance ramp. Please respect others by adhering to social distancing guidelines. Once each climber has completed their health screening, they will be escorted to their instructor. At this point, parents will be allowed to leave. It is the responsibility of parents and/or guardians to supervise their children as they wait for their screening. Again, parents and/or guardians may not enter the gym with their children unless they are accompanying their children as a registered participant in a program.
At the conclusion of programming, children are required to wait for their parents and/or guardians inside the building. It is the parent’s and/or guardian’s responsibility to escort the children from the building to their car. Please try to pick up your child on time, if you know you will be late please let us know. During peak times the parking lot is crowded. Please take into consideration that our students may include young children. Please drive slowly and carefully. Do not take a chance on your student running to and from your car.
