Welcome Back Students!
September is back and so are the students! Welcome back to all our FBC Student Members and good luck this semester! If you ever need a study break, come join us!
Check out what we have going on for students this semester:
4-Month Student Pass
If it's been a minute since you've been in to climb, come see us at the front desk and take advantage of our 4-Month Student Pass! This pass is designed with FBC Student Members in mind, pre-pay until December and save!
Just show us your valid student ID and you won't need to worry about your pass expiring this fall and you can save up to $40 a semester!
Student Night Saturday
Starting this month, we will have a Saturday night each month where we invite students to join us during evening drop-in! This is a great opportunity for you to bring your friends into the facility and give them an opportunity to try climbing in a safe and encouraging environment - and at a reduced rate! After 5:30pm on these Student Night Saturdays, students can drop in and get a shoe rental for $15!
