Guest Access: Sharing the Sandcastle Amenities With Your Family and Friends

Sandcastle access is changing – find out how you can bring or send your guests to use KICA’s community amenities when the changes go into effect on Sunday, April 14.

Who can come as a guest?

Your guests can be anyone who isn’t already a member: your adult children over 23, parents, siblings or friends. (Note: renters can’t be added as guests and aren’t permitted to use the Sandcastle. *See more info below.)

All guest access is tallied by member household. Guest limits (for example, 8 per day) mean that the total of guests brought or registered by all members of the member household must not exceed eight. (Learn about the member household and member access here.)


Accompanied Guests

We know that the member experience can be improved by sharing time with other family and friends. For this reason, when you bring accompanied guests with you, they benefit from your access by being able to use some of the Sandcastle’s more limited amenities. Accompanied guests are not subject to guest fees.


After Five Access at the Sandcastle’s boutique gym means you can work out with your guests starting at 5 p.m. daily (2 max, 18+). 

Fitness Classes

You can bring your guests (2 max, 18+) with you to fitness classes, as long as there are spaces available 24 hours before the class. All fitness classes require advance reservations at
