Becoming a Member

How to Join?

This flowchart provides a quick reference to the Camp5 policies that determine eligibility for membership. Ultimately right of access is determined by age and ability.

First Step is to Register

To become a member of Camp5 is super easy. You simply need to submit a completed Membership Application Form at the Check-in Counter. There is NO FEE to set up your membership. However it is important to understand by submitting an application does not imply you will receive independent access to Camp5. Independent Access is granted based on whether you have the prerequisite skills and experience to be considered competent to climb unsupervised.

Prerequisite Skills Required for Independent Access

To receive independent access you essentially need to be experienced and competent in top-rope safety skills including fitting harness, tying to the rope as a climber and belaying a climber, appropriate use of climbing commands and an applied buddy check practice. If you have climbed independently in other climbing gyms and/or outdoors you shouldn't have any issue, however it is important to keep in mind that some climbing gyms are set up differently, where the belay device may be preset and attached to a ground anchor or where the tie-in knot may be replaced by 2 locking carabiners. If this is the setup you're familiar with you may not receive independent access to Camp5.

"What if I am only bouldering?". Whilst Camp5 does not offer boulder-only access, exceptions may be granted to traveling climbers who can provide sufficient evidence that they are an experienced boulderer; a member card to another climbing gym would be ideal. Boulder-only access is granted on the condition that you will remain in the bouldering area and not climb on the roped walls.

Non-skilled Members aka Guests

If you are not an experienced climber you can still receive access to Camp5 by registering as a Guest of a Camp5 'Host' Member who does have independent access approved. The Host Member must be 18 years of age or older and must accompany you at all times. A Host Member can take up to 2 Guests into Camp5 at one-time. This is a great way to introduce friends and family to climbing.

If you are a Parent you can register your kids in your profile and thereon you can take up to 2 Guests in addition to your own kids.

The Host can bring you bouldering and top-roping. However under no circumstances can the Guest belay the Host. If a Guest wishes to upgrade from Novice to Top-rope climber in order to gain independent access they must have logged 4 visits to Camp5 (and upgrade on the 5th). Or to fast track, enroll on a Basic Wall Course and immediately receive your own independent Access Card.

Age Restrictions

Another important consideration in gaining access to Camp5 is age. Camp5's standard access policies will prohibit access to anyone under 13 years of age unless accompanied by an adult member.

Once your application has been processed, you will be eligible to use Camp5 as per the Member Fees.

Your Safety is Our Priority

At times we may have to prohibit your access to Camp5! Likely this will be due to your skill level not satisfying the minimum prerequisites. Of course we don't want to stop anyone from climbing but if forced to do so, please understand it is out of concern for your own safety.
