Pool Closures

Weather Closure Policy

Per policy, when thunder is heard or lightning is seen, or within 10 miles, the pool must close until the thunder and/or lightning has stopped for at least 30 minutes. You will be required to leave the pool and the pool deck for your safety and the safety of our guards. If the pool will be closed for a short amount of time due to weather, we won’t post updates on social media. However, if the pool is expected to be closed all day, we will make every effort to update Ken-Caryl Ranch’s Facebook page.

The weather changes rapidly; therefore, delays and closures at the pool can happen rapidly as well. You can also monitor the weather using the WeatherBug app, just like our guards!

* NO REFUNDs will be given for closures due to weather or unforeseeable events. Guests may receive a hand stamp to return to any of the pools later in the day.

Nanny and Grandchild Pool Pass

To purchase a Grandchild Pool Pass

The parent or legal guardian of your grandchildren will need to have a Ken-Caryl Ranch activity registration account with up to date contact information, including email and phone number. Each grandchild must be listed in the parent or legal guardian’s account with the correct name, home address, phone number and email for the parent or guardian, and date of birth of the child. Once that is complete, you will need to complete the Grandchild Pool Pass Form.

Please note the payment will be processed using the payment method on the resident grandparent’s account. To avoid delays, make sure your payment method is up to date. Grandchild passes are $25 per child. A receipt will be emailed after completion.

To purchase a Nanny Pool Pass

If your nanny is a non-resident and doesn’t already have a Ken-Caryl Ranch activity registration account they will need to create one here.  The nanny should list their own address and contact information in their profile and not the resident’s address. Once that is complete, you will need to complete the Nanny Pool Pass Form.

Please note the payment will be processed using the payment method on the resident’s account. To avoid delays, make sure your payment method is up to date. Nanny passes are $25 per person. After you receive your receipt, pool access cards may be picked up at the Ranch House administration office during normal business hours. A photo is required before use.
