Give The Gift of Membership
- Gift memberships are valid immediately upon purchase.
- In the interest of going green, we no longer mail membership materials. All communications are electronic.
- Purchase a gift membership online (check “this membership is a gift” box) or in person (daily 9am-4pm)
- Provide your recipient’s email, and they will receive emails right away informing them of your gift and containing instructions for downloading eMembership cards
- If your gift is a “holiday secret,” provide YOUR email instead of the recipient’s. Electronic materials will be sent to you, for forwarding or printing out at your convenience.
- If you’d like to delay the start of your gift membership, or would like a tangible item for gifting, a gift certificate is your best option.
- Gift certificates are available in person only at the front gate (daily 9am-4pm). These memberships will not begin until the certificate is redeemed.
- Sorry, we cannot accept phone orders.
