Birthday Parties


Online reservations will be available to members and non-members for Rock Climbing during our modified hours.



The Basics

Children must be 6yrs or older.


Our trained instructors provide a fun, exciting and unique place for you to have your birthday party. We maintain a 5:1 ratio of climbers to belayers so everyone in your party receives individual attention. Each two hour session is filled with climbing and activities such as Capture the Flag, Wall Tag and Wall Twister!


Party times for groups of 5-30 climbers are available during regular business hours. Larger groups can be accommodated by renting the gym before we open or after we close (see ‘After Hours Pricing’)

Birthday Party FAQ

  • What does a typical birthday party at Rockreation look like?

The first ten minutes, instructors run a game while we get everyone checked in and harnessed up.  After going over rules, the party climbs hard for 50 minutes. We then break for fifteen minutes for food followed by another 40 minutes of climbing. We finish with a game as we get everyone deharnessed.

  • Can I come early to set up?

You are welcome to come up to fifteen minutes before hand to set up the party.

  • Can I have use of the party room after?

Due to the consistent use of the party room throughout the day, the use of the party room ends promptly after the two hour party.  However, the party room can be reserved in advance for use for 50 dollars per half hour provided there are no conflicting parties or classes at the time.

  • What if I am a little over on my number of climbers the day of the party?

We can usually accommodate an extra climber but we would not be able to provide an extra belayer.  Given our limited number of space, we stress not to bring more than the party limit so that we can ensure that your party runs smoothly.  There is no limit to the number of spectators.

  • What if I am a little under on my number of climbers the day of the party?

We would still have to charge the amount quoted, but if any parents wanted to join in to take the spot they are more than welcome climb to fill the quota.

  • Who needs to fill out waivers?

Anyone coming into the gym, even if they are just watching, will need a participant agreement filled out prior to coming into the gym.  This can be filled out online.  Often times parents will drop off their child and come a little while before the party ends to watch.  Regardless of the time spent in the gym, all spectators and participants will have to fill out waivers.

  • What is provided in the party room?

We have six picnic size tables and 30 chairs.  Any food and decorations would have to be brought in by the party.  Table cloths are also recommended.

  • Can we run a few games during the party?

Yes!  Our program is flexible according to how you want to run the party.  Tell your instructors before hand if you had any special requests and they will do their best to accommodate.

  • What is the minimum age?

The minimum age to climb with an instructor is six.
