Children's Birthday Parties

Updated Fall 2021: Please note that guests may not bring food to serve and share during the party. Any food must be prepackaged in individual portions and consumed after the guests leave the party area. This is to help keep our shared classroom space clean and sanitary.

Birthday parties are held year-round in our outdoor classroom space at Reeves-Reed Arboretum, and are a privilege of membership at the Family Level or above. Parties can be scheduled Wednesdays and Fridays between the hours of 3:00 to 5:30 pm or Saturdays from 2:00 to 3:30 pm, depending on availability. See individual party package descriptions for ages, time, and maximum number of party guests. Please include any participating siblings when calculating the guest limits.

Each party begins with a brief introduction by a staff member, followed by the entertainment of your choice. A short hike will complete the program part of the party. The space is available to you one half-hour before your scheduled time slot for setup and decorating, and one half-hour afterwards for cleanup.
