Summer Events for Kids
We have two kid friendly events coming up in August that you don’t want to miss. Our annual LEGO Blast Competition, open to 2nd-6th graders, is a great summer morning activity. Read more about it here and register your student here.
The annual Teddy Bear Tea Party is perfect for a younger crowd (ages 4- 10) but is open to all. Bring your favorite stuffed friend and enjoy games, crafts, stories and more. Read more about the event here and RSVP here.
