Capacity Limits

Gym capacity is limited and meets all state and county guidelines.

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. Please respect others by adhering to social distancing guidelines. Once each climber has completed their health screening, they will be escorted to their instructor. It is the responsibility of parents and/or guardians to supervise their children as they wait for their screening. 

At the conclusion of programming, children are required to wait for their parents and/or guardians inside the building.. 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 drive slowly and carefully. Parking lot attendants will be present to help keep the parking lot safe.
