Welcome to

the Vashon Recess Lab

The Recess Lab is closed for the summer but...

we will reopen for one week for SUMMER CAMP

July 8 -12th

Find out more here


The VARSA Middle School Nights are done for the summer

but will be back in the fall for more D&D, games, climbing fun

For information about Straight on Strength classes and personal training, go here



The Recess Lab is Vashon’s favorite place to hang out – literally!

Our bouldering wall is a great place to learn new skills or to keep working on old ones.

We have climbing shoes for almost all kids and some adult sizes as well. And we also have a slack line, mini trampoline, hippity hoppities, hula hoops and even a few jump ropes.

All the things you need for recess!

Looking for work out classes that include spin bikes, ViPRs, free weights, TRXs, and more? All the information you need is here!

Our Middle School Recess Lab Nights presented from VARSA

are back! These evenings are free to any middle schooler and include

climbing, foosball, ping pong, D&D, snacks and fun for all.

Friday nights 6:15pm to 8:45pm (following the school calendar).

Thank you VARSA!


The gym is open to climbers of all skill level and all ages. We can help you with the basics to get you off the ground, and climbing is a great work out. Our wall will have you happily exhausted in no time. Reserve a time online now!


Our bouldering wall is as easy or hard as you make it for all ages! Routes are color coded so you can choose easy, medium, or hard – or just make up your own to fit your creative and athletic energy!


Hanging Out & Partying

Want the space all for yourself? Do it!

The Recess Lab climbing wall is a great place for birthdays, group activities, or really... any kind of party! Adults, teens, and kids alike can use the wall and you are welcome to invite as many guests as you can manage! 

We can't wait to celebrate with you in our space.


"My 5 year old loves the Recess Lab.  I was worried that it would be too challenging for him, but the staff at the Recess Lab are so helpful and knowledgeable that they were able to get my son climbing correctly immediately.  Now he scampers to the top and to the side before I have sat down.


I also appreciate that they understand a 5 year old’s attention span is short so they allow him to run around a bit, climb a bit, and run around some more."

Susan, Parent
