Built in 2000 to be architecturally engaging, the building itself makes a great first impression to guests. Beyond the standard meeting rooms and kitchen, the facility encompasses pools, gymnasiums, and a climbing wall in an expansive open air environment. To enhance your experience, our professional staff will help make sure your event runs smoothly, and may provide support for your activities if needed.

The Center is open to everyone and offers discounted rates to Center members, Clayton residents, Clayton businesses and employees, and nonprofit organizations. Reserve your space up to one year in advance and let us help you make a lasting impression.
