Cancellation and Weather Policy for Group Bookings
Cancellation or reschedules of the entire group must be made at least 48 hours in advance, but your deposit is nonrefundable. The deposit may be used for another booking in the case of weather cancellations.
We do climb in the rain as we have a nice canopy of trees covering the park that you will stay dry even in a light to moderate rain. However, in the case of extreme weather we do close the course. Given the unpredictability of weather in our area, we won’t make that call until the day of sometimes even pretty close to the start time of your group. If you have any questions on the day of your event, just give us a call at 919-410-7347 and we are happy to answer any questions you may have.
All waivers must be signed before arrival to the park.
If all waivers are not signed before arrival to the park, the entire group must wait for entire group’s waivers to be signed before entering the park. However, in this instance your climb time starts at your reserved time and if we are waiting for waivers we will not be able to extend your time. If you are worried about it, we recommend arriving at least 15 minutes before your scheduled time to be able to check in, use the restrooms, etc.
Final guest list is due 48 hours before climb time.
This is the guest list we will use to check that all waivers are in our system. Any missing waivers will need to be filled out before the group may go down to begin their climb.
What To Wear
Closed-toed, securable shoes are required. We recommend comfortable and loose-fitting clothing. Long hair must be pulled back. No hoop earrings or dangling jewelry or scarves.
What To Expect For Group Events
At TreeRunner, we can cater to the unique needs of your group and create a one-of-a-kind experience. We accommodate groups both large and small. Our Park Guides safely and efficiently facilitate groups to get them skyward in a timely manner. Notice their great attention to detail and professional interaction with your group during ground facilitation and throughout your stay.
Our wooded, serene setting is unlike any other in West Bloomfield. Picnic tables and benches line the wood-chipped paths beneath an aerial obstacle course and zip line park. This provides an exciting place to observe and meet with your group before or after exploring the course yourself.
Some groups prefer to climb together, while others prefer the independence of climbing at their own pace. We start everyone on one beginner course. From there, individuals choose their level of challenge. Some may choose to stay at the beginner courses and hone their skills. Others may choose to push themselves further on one of our intermediate or expert-level courses.
Most importantly, we strive to give each guest a satisfying and challenging experience that meets their highest expectations.
