Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions pertaining to Columbia Association memberships.
Do I have to live in Columbia to belong to Columbia Association?
No. Anyone can purchase a membership. Those residing or working full-time on property protected by CA covenants receive a discount on membership prices.
What defines a two-member membership?
A two-member membership is defined as two people who permanently reside at the same address.
What is the price of membership?
Prices vary per family and membership. The Customer and Member Service Center team would be happy to consult with you directly to answer what the price of your membership would be. Visit the Customer and Member Service Center at 6310 Hillside Court, Suite 100, on Monday through Friday from 9am-6pm, and on Saturday from 9am-4pm. You may also call 410-730-1801 or email CMSC@ColumbiaAssociation.org. Income-qualified discounts are also available — click here to learn more.
What is the length or term of membership?
12 months or greater.
How does CA define a family for membership purposes?
A family is up to two adults and any dependent children, younger than the age of 23, who reside at the same address.
Are CA facilities open during inclement weather?
In case of inclement weather, please call CA’s Inclement Weather Hotline at 410-715-3154 for up-to-date information on Sport and Fitness facilities, classes and programs.
When Howard County schools are delayed or closed, KidSpace will make every effort to open at 9am or at the same time that the facilities reopen. Call the KidSpace program before bringing your children to the club to ensure that we are properly staffed. This is especially important for parents/guardians bringing infants to KidSpace. Should the weather deteriorate during the day, please call before coming to the club.
The Before and After School program will also have delayed openings equal to the amount of time the Howard County Public School System is delayed. If schools are closed, Before and After programs will be canceled. Notifications will also be posted on CA’s website and CA’s Facebook page and sent out via text message and/or email to CA Urgent Notification subscribers. To subscribe, visit ColumbiaAssociation.org/notify.
CA reserves the right to update or change this policy.
As a member, can I bring a guest to a facility?
Yes, you may accompany your guest at time of admission and use an electronic guest pass for them to gain entrance. CA Fit&Play and Golf Fit&Play members each receive two electronic passes for guest use each month. All other members receive one electronic pass for guest use each month. Electronic passes may also be purchased from the Customer and Member Service Center. Residents who live within 25 miles of the facilities are limited to six visits as the guest of a member.
If you have any further questions, please visit the Customer and Member Service Center at 6310 Hillside Court, Columbia, Monday through Friday from 9am-6pm, and Saturday from 9am-4pm. You may also call 410-730-1801 or email CMSC@ColumbiaAssociation.org.
Can I place a hold or freeze on my membership?
The principal member of a CA Fit&Play, 1Fit, or Haven on the Lake membership may place a freeze on their membership for any reason once a year for 1-3 months. All other memberships — Play, 5Day Golf&Play, 7Day Golf, and Golf Fit&Play — may only place freezes due to medical reasons.
A freeze that is due to medical reasons may exceed the three-month limit — and will require medical documentation to be submitted to the Customer and Member Service. Membership dues may be refunded, upon submission of medical documentation, up to a maximum of 30 days.
Freeze requests must be submitted by the 15th of each month. They will begin on the 18th of the month and apply to full months only — e.g., from May 18 through June 17.
To place a freeze, download this form and submit it to CA’s Customer and Member Service Center (email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or drop off at headquarters). There is a $10 administrative fee assessed per month if the entire account is frozen — and the contract, if applicable, will be extended by the length of the freeze. Freezes for medical reasons with documentation from a medical professional will not be assessed a $10 administrative fee. The contract will still be extended by the length of the freeze.
If anyone in a multi-person membership wishes to remain active, the new billing rate for the freeze period will reflect the number of active members. In this instance, the $10 administrative fee will not be applied.
When the member is reactivated, they will pay either their current contracted rate or the comparable rate in effect when they return.
