Don’t have a CA membership or Columbia Card? No problem! You’re still welcome to enjoy our facilities as a guest.

To do so, you’ll need to purchase a guest pass, which will give you access to one of our clubs or facilities for one calendar day. You can pick up your pass at any facility’s front desk.

Alternatively, if you live within 25 miles of Columbia, you can come as the guest of a CA member (up to six times per calendar year per household). Every CA membership includes a set number of guest passes per month, or members can buy more from CA’s Customer Care Team.

Whether you’re buying a guest pass or accompanying a CA member, make sure to bring your ID. Once you arrive, we’ll ask you to sign in to our online system. We’ll do our best to speed things along, but please be aware that the check-in process may take a few minutes.
