How to Purchase a CR Membership

No matter what form of payment you use, you will first need to visit the CR Member Services Desk at the ARC during operational hours in order to sign a waiver and complete some brief paperwork.

Once you have completed the paperwork at the Member Services desk, you can purchase your membership with a debit card, credit card, cash, Payroll Deduction, or Monthly Installments. Some forms of payment require going to our Business Center, which is conveniently located inside the ARC. Check current Business Center hours before coming in, as they differ from ARC hours.
