Birthday Party Frequently Asked Questions

How are the birthday parties structured?
The birthday parties are 2 hours long, and price ranges from $225-$275. The screened-in porch of our main building is reserved for you, plus access to the main building and kitchen. You can set up 30 minutes before the party begins.  For example, if your party is from 1:00-3:00 you can set up starting at 12:30.  The themed program is one hour long and led by our educator.  The other hour is yours to play games, eat, open presents, or whatever you would like.   You can discuss with the educator the structure of the party, but we recommend allowing the guests to arrive during the first 15 minutes, then beginning the 1 hour program followed by 45 minutes of games, presents, cake, etc.

How can I contact the educator?
The program manager will connect you with your educator via email by Wednesday prior to your party.  You can finalize any necessary details then.

What foods should I bring?
You will have access to our kitchen including a microwave, refrigerator, and freezer for any food you bring.  You can bring whatever food you like, or make your own plans to order a pizza to be delivered!  Don’t forget the birthday cake! We ask that you do not leave any food in the refrigerator, freezer, or on the counters after your party.

What decorations can I bring?
We will provide tables and chairs for you to set up.  You can bring tablecloths and table decorations if you like.  You will need to bring any paper products if you need them.  You can decorate the indoors with whatever decorations you like, but please refrain from having balloons outside.

What if it rains?
In the event that it is raining, we still make every effort to complete as much of the program outside as possible.  Many of our trails are well canopied by trees so we can escape light rain.  If the rain is too heavy, we will move the party inside and adapt the activities.

What if I need to re-schedule my Birthday Party?
We will work with you to find another time, but because our space is limited and our parties are popular, there is no guarantee that another space will be available.

What if I need to cancel my scheduled Birthday Party?
Refunds for cancelled birthday parties are allowed if made at least 2 weeks in advance of the scheduled program minus $40 cancellation fee.
