Group FAQ

What are group ticket rates? Attractions in Maryland, Sandy Spring Adventure Park

Is your group looking for family attractions in Maryland? Look no further, as group rates for the Adventure Park at Sandy Spring are available for groups of 10 or more (8 or more for birthday parties) with an advanced reservation. Please call our office, (240) 389 – 4386, or email us at info@sandyspringtrees.org for more information or to book a group.

Group reservations are confirmed by receipt of a $150 deposit at the time of booking. Full payment is due 4 weeks in advance of the reservation.

*Please note that group rates require advanced reservation. These are filled at a first come first served basis and require a deposit to hold your time-slot.

What times are available to schedule groups?

Weekdays (Monday – Friday): Although we are not open during weekdays in the spring or fall, for groups of 10+, we welcome group reservations at any time. During the summer, we can accommodate groups of 10+ (8+ for birthday parties) with much more flexibility than during the weekend.

Saturdays & Sundays: Due to the high volume and demand of general admission on weekends, we have a limited capacity for weekend bookings, and can rarely book during our peak hours. We only have a limited number of slots available and these are filled on a first come first served basis. A deposit is required to hold your time slot.

For more information on reservations and discounted group rates for groups of 8 or more climbers. Please call our office, (240) 389 – 4386, or email info@sandyspringtrees.org.

Can we have a birthday party or family reunion at The Adventure Park?

The Adventure Park would be happy to host birthday parties, family reunions and any other gatherings that you think would enjoy climbing and zip lines in the trees!

Do you have Corporate or Team Building events?

The Adventure Park is great venue for a corporate outing or team building event. Climbing in The Park is a fun way to interact with co-workers outside of the normal office setting. It enhances cooperation, communication, and group cohesion.

What is the group cancellation policy?

The Adventure Park is open rain or shine. To prepare for your group we make advance arrangements for staffing and materials. So we appreciate your cooperation to help us in this planning. If severe weather or thunderstorms prevent us from opening, you may reschedule or receive a full refund. Also, should you choose to cancel otherwise, you are eligible for the following:

  • The park is open, rain or shine!
  • You may cancel and receive a full refund, or change your reservation without penalty, up to 10 days prior to your reservation (the deposit is non-refundable).
  • Although refunds cannot be given for cancellations or changes made less than 10 days prior to the event, if you wish to reschedule, you can move your reservation to another available date anytime before the end of the 2014 season.
  • Late-cancellations, and/or no-shows are ineligible for a refund.
  • Add-on members must be added with at least 24 hours notice and must be paid for in advance.  There is a limit to the number of climbers a group may add-on, depending on the time of the reservation and size of the group.
  • Any add-on members to your group on the day of the visit that were not included in the final pre-paid headcount will be charged at the regular general admission rate ($39-$49/person, depending on age).
  • All group reservation changes and payment should be done by the group organizer only.

Don’t forget to fill out your waiver!

Please be aware that all participants will be required to present a completed/signed waiver upon arrival. A waiver must be completed online for each participant, and must be signed by a parent/guardian if the participant is under age 18.  Please note: waivers from previous years will not be accepted. Every climber must complete the 2014 waiver online.

If you have a group reservation, providing us with a list of participants will allow us to check everyone in before you arrive. Please fill out the Group Waiver List form and email it to info@sandyspringtrees.org before the day of your climb, or bring it with you on the day of your climb.  This completed document will speed up the check-in process.
