Customizable Memberships for Your Family

To select the level that is best for your family, you will need to decide how many people you would like to cover under your membership. You can name every slot in your membership if you like or you can leave slots open for guests so you can bring someone different each time. Every membership requires at least one named individual. Once an individual is named, that slot is reserved for that member and cannot be transferred to someone else. At least one named individual needs to be present with the membership card and a valid photo ID to use the membership. Children 2 and under are free.

Membership is intended for personal, household use only. Memberships are not available for purchase for businesses or organizations. For more information on partnerships, please contact our Development Office at (361) 653-2655 for more information.

All memberships are non-refundable and non-transferable.
