All bookings require full payment in order to secure the booking. This includes, but is not limited to; birthday parties, camps, youth and adult programs, and other group offerings. Deposits may be offered on a case by case basis with approval from Steel Peak Climbing & Ninja. Prior to booking please ensure your ability to commit to a booking.
We recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early for your booking. To speed up check-in please complete your waiver in advance and submit it electronically. Late arrivals will delay the start of your event and we may not be able to accommodate time extensions.
Our guiding principal is that we want you to receive value for your money. We have a variety of offerings available to suit different lifestyles and levels of interest. If something unexpected comes up we can work with you to convert your unused membership or booking into something that fits your schedule, or transfer it to a friend or family member.
Refunds on Retail
All retail items are final sale. If something is defective we will gladly exchange it for a different product. If clothing doesn't fit right, we can exchange it for another size provided the original purchase is in good enough condition to be resold.
Refunds on Classes, Camps, Drop in Bookings and Birthday Parties
Space in our classes, camps, and birthday parties is limited and require full payment to secure the booking. Like a concert ticket, we reserve a spot for you when you register, and once the class or time slot is full we need to turn away other people who are interested. Before booking, please make sure you can commit to it. That said, life is full of surprises and we know that things can change at the last minute.
All, drop-in, class, camp, and birthday party bookings are non-refundable, but we can move your booking to another time that works for you. We can also apply a credit to your account that can be used for anything at the gym.
Please ensure you can commit to a program/camp before you register, any missed classes or day of camp is non-refundable and no credit will be applied.
Refunds on Prepaid Memberships
Prepaid memberships are great if you know you can commit for a set number of months. The more months you purchase at once, the more discounted the membership is. Prepaid memberships are final sale, but we can work with you to find a solution if your prepaid membership doesn't make sense for you anymore.
If you can't visit regularly anymore, we can transfer the remaining membership time to a friend or family member, or we can convert your remaining time into punch passes that don't expire, and you can use for yourself or others. Freezes are only available in the event of injury, and a note from your healthcare professional may be required. Our 3 month memberships are partially discounted, and our annual memberships are heavily discounted because they consider that you will miss some days for travel, vacation, illness, etc.
Refunds on Punch Passes
Punch passes offer a substantial discount by prepaying for multiple day passes and are final sale. If you don't think you can commit to using all of your punches, please purchase day passes instead. Punches can be shared with friends and family, and transferred to someone else if you are moving. They also never expire, so you will eventually have a chance to use them.
Refunds on EFT Memberships
EFT Memberships require an up front commitment of the rest of the current month and 2 additional months. If something comes up during the prepaid period of time we can convert your EFT membership to a prepaid membership and the policies for refunds on prepaid memberships apply.
After the prepaid period you can set your EFT membership to end on the last day of the current month by filling out a membership change request on our website. You will still have access to the gym until the end of the current month. Our billing cycle is monthly, and no partial refunds or credits are available for partial months.
Punch passes and prepaid memberships can be transferred to friends or family in the event you can't make use of them anymore.
Freezes on Prepaid Memberships
Membership freezes are available for pre-paid memberships due to injury or other special circumstances that require time away. A doctors note from your medical professional may be required.
EFT Memberships will continue automatically until cancelled with billing on the 1st of every month. Please complete a cancellation request 7 days before the end of the month if you would like to cancel your membership. We want you to get value for what you pay, and don't charge freeze fees or late fees. Freezing is complimentary in the event of injury, just show us a note from your medical professional and we will freeze your membership for up to 6 months. For other cases like extended travel, please cancel your membership and start it again when you are able to come regularly. Your starting price is locked in and isn't subject to price increases for at least one year. We will warn you when your card is close to expiring, and if payment is declined we will let you know on the 1st of the month so you can update your billing information. If payment still hasn't been made by the 8th of the month your membership may be terminated.
Rental equipment is for your own personal use only and cannot be shared or transferred to others.
