To schedule your party, you'll need to complete this party request form.  Birthday parties are processed on a first-come first served basis via the on-line party request form.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

My child is ___ years old, what party would be best for him/her? 
The FAC pool party is good for all ages, but you have to follow the pool rules which state that all children 5 years of age and under must be accompanied by an adult (18 and over) in the water.

The obstacle course is for ages 3 and up. The party is run by two well-qualified gymnastics instructors and the course is age appropriate. Children 2 and under may not participate.

The climbing wall is for ages 8 and up. The party will be attended by two well-qualified climbing wall staff. (Parents are also welcome to get trained and help belay.) 

The Motion Zone is for children ages 7 and up. The party and exergames will be led by a qualified Motion Zone staff member. 

Will my hour long activity be in a reserved or private setting?
For the FAC party, the pool will remain open for our members. We do request that an extra guard is scheduled during pool parties so that swim tests can be accomplished faster and that greater monitoring can be achieved.

For the climbing wall party, the “Summit” will remain open to members, but the climbing staff will be assigned strictly to your party group. Members are still welcome to come in and belay for their own family or boulder climb (climbing horizontally along the bottom of the wall).

For the obstacle course party, the gymnastics center is closed to all other activities.

How are activities structured? 
The FAC pool parties are open swim.

The climbing wall is flexible as to what routes the climbers want to take, but the staff takes care to make sure that all guests receive fair and adequate time to climb.

The obstacle course party is structured to allow time for use of padded course, plus time on several other parts of the center. The party concludes with a fun parachute activity and special birthday “surprise.”

The Motion Zone is structured with Exergames led by our trained staff.

When should I book my party?
Generally, it is best to book your party 4-6 weeks in advance. We try to accommodate all booking requests, but with limited availability, our party slots do fill up quickly.

Birthday parties are processed on a first-come first served basis via the on-line party request form. Birthday parties may not be booked via initial voice messaging.

Can I just book a room and throw my own party? 
We take great care in making sure we have constructed a fun, safe and economical party for our members and families in the community. We have limited availability for our weekend room usage and have chosen to allow only our structured parties to take place.

My child is allergic to ________. Is it possible not to utilize the included pizza/drinks?
We are happy to adjust the party fee and not include the pizza and/or drinks. You may bring any alternative food that you’d like.

Can I cancel and get my $75 deposit back?
The only situation where a party deposit will be refunded is in the case of inclement weather where conditions are unsafe for travel or a YMCA closure.  If your child is sick, we will reschedule your party for another date.

I want to bring more that 15 guests. Is that okay?
For several reasons, it is important that we stick to the “up to 15” count with guests. Parties are staffed to supervise a maximum of 15 participants. Thank you for respecting our 15 guests only policy.
