Private Events

The La Vida Rock Gym is available to host your event! We offer private rentals for birthday parties, school groups, youth groups, scout troops and more. A private event may be a time of celebration, games, and fun activities, or it may be an eight-week climbing course offered by a school to promote fitness. The suggested age for most event types is eight and up.

Rates are based on a two-hour time slot. A $50 non-refundable deposit and group reservation form are due two weeks prior to the event in order to confirm the time slot. Gordon College faculty and staff may be eligible for an event discount. There is an additional $25 cost for rental of a separate party room.
