Adult Sponsored Memberships

THIS DISCOUNTED RECURRING MEMBERSHIP IS ONLY AVAILABLE TO CLIMBERS WHO RECEIVE FOOD STAMPS THROUGH SNAP

The monthly recurring adult sponsored membership is 70% off regular EFT rate -
currently $20/month!  

This program is for individuals who have already been exposed to climbing. 

Stone Age Climbing Gym is committed to offer access to climbing to those adults in our community who already have a passion for climbing but have not been able to participate in this activity due to financial hardship. 

Here is how to apply and maintain this benefit:

  • Send an email to Cristina describing your passion for climbing and your current situation;
  • If approved for the sponsored recurring EFT membership, present proof of being enrolled in SNAP to one of our front desk managers along with a valid credit card to sign an electronic funds transfer contract; proof of being in SNAP can be in a letter format or any other official government-issued document;
  • No initiation fees will apply;
  • Pro-rated membership dues will be charged on the 15th of the first month and monthly thereafter; and
  • Adult sponsored memberships can start any time and will be approved for the following periods: January 1 through March 31, April 1 through June 30, July 1 through September 30, and October 1 through December 31. Membership renewal will be based on providing proof of continued enrollment in SNAP to one of our front desk managers.
