Groups

We offer two different group rates at Coyote Rock Gym depending on the size of your group, and the time that you would like to come into the gym. All groups must be booked at least 48 hours in advance of your session, however, to ensure a preferable time we suggest booking 2 weeks ahead at a minimum  -there are often 4 or 5 groups booked in a day.

Off-Hours Groups

If you have more than 12 participants you need to come in before/after the gym is open. Usually a Saturday or Sunday* between 10:00-12:00 or 6:00-8:00 or Monday to Friday any time up to about 1:00 pm (ending at 3:00 pm). The cost for a group during hours the gym is not normally open would be $20 per person with a $200.00 minimum. This includes shoe and harness rental, and the Introductory course for all climbers and belayers who are 14 and older.
*note there are no Sunday morning groups from September to June while we offer our Youth Program

Normal Business Hours

If you have between 6 and 12 participants then you can come in during normal business hours. You still have to book at least 48 hours ahead!!

The cost for a group of this size during business hours is $16.00 per climber. This includes shoe and harness rental, and the Introductory course for all climbers and belayers who are 14 and older.

If you have less than 12 participants but don’t mind paying the $200 minimum you may instead book a group during hours the gym is not open as above.

General Group Information

Groups are booked in 2 hour blocks of time. If you want a longer session, that may be possible if other groups are not booked, however, you will be required to pay more than the standard group rate. You must book your group at least 48 hours in advance.

To save time at the front desk, please have all members of your group read, print, and sign a waiver before coming to the gym. Children (under 18) must have a waiver signed by a parent/legal guardian. You can download and print the waiver here.

As well, you have to be 14 or older belay (person who works the safety equipment – a lesson on how to belay safely is included in your fees). If your group of kids are under age 14, we require  one parent to work the safety equipment for every 3 or 4 kids. Please read through the First Time Climber section of the website for general new climber info.

If you wish to book a session please call the gym at (613) 739-4074 during normal business hours and our staff will advise you on availability and take down your information. We do not book groups over the internet, you must call and talk to a CRG staff member to book.

When you book a group, you will be asked to provide the following:

  • Group name
  • Contact person & phone number
  • Date & time requested
  • Number and age of participants

You will then be given a reservation number and the name of the Coyote Rock Gym staff member that booked your group. Keep track of your reservation number.

It is also advisable to call a few days in advance of your group’s arrival to confirm your date, time and number of participants.
