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.

Summer Camps 2013

Looking for a way to keep kids entertained during the dog days of summer? This summer we’re offering an exciting alternative to traditional summer camps with its diverse range of indoor and outdoor climbing camps designed to build climbing skills in children of all ages and all skill levels. By learning what it takes to be a successful rock climber, kids can reach new heights in all aspects of their lives, not just on the climbing wall.

From June 24th to August 23rd, 2013 kids ages 10 and up will have an opportunity for an unforgettable week of all-day climbing adventures with the BRG’s Outdoor Climbing Camp. 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. This camp is specifically designed to build each camper’s skills base, beginner or expert, so that children will walk away with more skill, experience and confidence. Price: $450 a week/ $400 for BRG annual members. 10% discount for early sign up before May 1, 2013. Sibling Discount is available.

For children that prefer the indoors, the BRG is offering an Indoor Wall Monkey’s Camp every Monday through Friday from 9:00AM to 12:00PM from June 24th, 2013 through August 23rd, 2013 for kids ages 5 and up. This indoor climbing camp will give children the skills and confidence to scale the BRG’s 30 foot high walls with ease, while more experienced climbers will learn the skills it takes to tackle some of the BRG’s more difficult climbs. The BRG’s expert staff will focus on building skills and community in a fun and supportive environment. Skills covered include climbing technique, use of equipment, adventure games and climbing safety. Space is limited so sign up early! Price: $209 a week/ $179 for BRG annual members. $30 discount for early sign up before May 1, 2013.

For less of a commitment, we have added an extra Kids Climb Class from 1:00PM to 3:00PM and 3:30PM to 5:30PM. Introduce a unique and challenging sport that will keep your child moving and having fun.

All of Boston Rock Gym’s summer programs are led by expert climbers in small groups to ensure safety and instill a spirit of cooperation and teamwork amongst students. Climbing helps kids develop muscular endurance and strength, flexibility, coordination, balance and focus. It also teaches teamwork, responsibility and trust through belaying, as well as self-confidence and motivation. Don’t let your kids waste their summer away. Keep them off the couch and help them reach their peak with any of the Boston Rock Gym summer programs!

Preregistration is necessary. Please call us directly at (781) 935-7325 to sign up.
