You can book a party 14 days to 3 months in advance.
Party Rental fees must be paid in full at the time of booking. After booking, you will receive an email form with some additional questions. After booking, please also email the Party Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your reservation is not complete until you have emailed the Party Coordinator.
The organizer of the party must send a complete headcount to our Party Coordinator at email@example.com at least 10 days before the party. This ensures that we are able to staff the party appropriately.
If you plan on having more than 8 climbers, those additional climbers must get paid for 10 days before the party ($15 per additional climber). If an additional instructor is required, a $30 instructor fee must also be paid for 10 days before the party.
Failure to notify Valley Rock Gym of additional climbers within the appropriate time frame (10 days prior) will result in additional fees of $20/climber.
There will be no refunds for additional climbers and instructor fees.
Once you reach out to our Party Coordinator, you will receive the link to a roster for your party. The parent/guardian of each attendee will be responsible for adding their child to the roster 5 days before the party. Any participants who are not on the roster AND are not accounted for in the original headcount sent to the party coordinator result in additional fees of $20/climber.
All children attending the party who are under the age of 18 need a liability waiver signed by a parent. All participants, whether or not they are climbing, will need a waiver on file in order to attend the party. This includes parents, grandparents etc. (Please visit the waiver tab for instructions on how to fill out a waiver)

Kids should wear active, comfortable clothes and tennis shoes. Pants that your child can move freely in can reduce minor abrasions associated with contact with our climbing walls, but are optional. Layering athletic pants over shorts can provide good options for kiddos that like shorts when they heat up! Climbing rental shoes are provided for those who are climbing party participants.
Yes! There are plenty of tables, chairs, and space for decorations. Food and drink are welcome as long as it is contained within the designated eating space and people wash their hands both before and after eating.
If you have food that needs to remain in the freezer or fridge prior to consumption, we can store it in our staff fridge.
Parents are welcome to hang out during the party as long as they have a waiver on file. We staff the party so parents are not required to supervise the climbers during their reservation, although they are encouraged to watch and cheer on their kids as they climb. Parents are also welcome to enjoy nearby Ants on a Log or Beer Place during their reservation (please see online for their hours as they may not align with your party)
No experience necessary! Our instructors will teach all necessary basic climbing skills and safety.
Our upstairs room is a large ocean and ship themed room with bouldering and auto belay walls. It offers a variety of climbing for all levels and ages, a seating area for food and hanging out, and space for climbing games. It also includes four autobelays and a large pirate ship structure with a slide.
Access to Valley Rock Gym for a party is not the equivalent of a day pass and only allows access to the area reserved for the party for the party time slot. This does not include access to fitness, yoga or climbing outside of a rented party facility.
Everyone who wants to use the auto-belay outside of birthday parties or youth programs where VRG staff are present must have taken a separate certification class through the VRG. Birthday parties and youth programs do not count as certification to use the auto-belays. Please see our class schedule on Approach to book an auto-belay class.
