Family Memberships

For some, family time means dreaded game nights and long trips stuck in a car. For the BRG it means family fun for all at an affordable price. The BRG is now offering three Family Membership packages perfect for two adults and any child under the age of 16 residing in the same household.

Families can opt for a No Contract Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) Membership, which allows them the flexibility of a month-to-month membership without the hassle of contracts and other binding agreements, available for $100/month plus a $55 initiation fee.

For something more long term, families can sign up for a One Year Contract EFT, $80/month, $55 initiation fee or a 1 Year Prepaid Membership $960– a 27% discount over regular pricing.

Sign up for either the No Contract or One Year EFT during the month of June 2013 and the initiation fees will be waived!

Not only does a family membership include unlimited climbing during regular business hours, but it also includes a variety of perks such as discounted rates on camps, classes, guiding and clinics as well as one free guest pass per month. All children under 12 years of age receive free equipment rentals and, the membership provides all family members with discounts on Moosejaw-branded gear at the retailer’s location in Natick Mall as well as 10% off at JRA Cycles in Medford, MA. With summer almost here and vacation right around the corner, there is no better way to enjoy family time than with the Boston Rock Gym.

Children will board the BRG’s van and ride to some of the most abundant climbing destinations in New England where they will learn from the area’s most accomplished rock climbing professionals.
