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.

Group Rates

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.

All participants must bring a completed copy of the "La Vida Confidential Medical and Emergency Form" and the "Rock Gym Policies Form & Covid-19 Waiver" with a parent/guardian signature. Fill them out online with the link below.

School groups or other organizations must also provide a copy of their certificate of insurance.

COVID-19 Protocols:

Climbers are expected to wear a mask at all times, and our current capacity is eight (six climbers and two staff). All guests will sanitize their hands upon entry and exit of the Rock Gym as well as in between each climb or activity. We are transitioning to an online waiver form; however, we are not ready to launch this new system yet. For now, please download the release forms and policies form and complete before your event. There is online payment available, but you can also pay with cash, check or credit card with one of our staff members at your event. Thank you for your patience as we adapt to this new process!
