Party Themes

Ages: 5–6 years old 
Party Animals (year round)
Head outside for fun games and activities with your best friends. Search for animals that live in the park, identify animal sounds, look for clues that animals have been there, learn how to camouflage yourself like animals do in the wild and play a lively game of Thicket.

Nature Detectives (year round)
Invite your friends to become nature detectives for a day. Search the woods to find mysterious clues and animal signs and play games that will help uncover “whodunit” in the park. Each guest will make an animal track to take home.

Bug Bonanza (May to September)
Celebrate your birthday with your friends and hundreds of dragonflies, bugs and other captivating creatures. Hunt for insects and use nets to capture, examine and compare your catches.

Art in the Park (year round)
Indulge their artsy side. Invite your friends to design and create a craft or art project using eye-catching natural materials like leaves, plants, flowers, pebbles and other items found along the trails and in the woods. Guests will make their own masterpiece to take home.

Ages: 6–12 years old
Fun with Forts (year round)
Take your best friends on an adventure they won’t soon forget. Trek into the woods to design and build a fort using branches, bark, leaves and other natural materials — much like animals do.

medal to take home.

Water Bug Bash (May to September)
Have a blast with your best friends and hundreds of water bugs. Head down to the lake for a pond dip (not for you — but to collect water bugs) and use a magnifying glass to discover what lives beneath the surface with the fish, turtles and frogs.

Ages: 10–12 years old
Treasure Hunt Hoopla (year round)
Head out on a geocaching adventure with your best friends. Hunt for hidden treasures in the woods using a GPS unit and special coordinates. Don’t know how to use a GPS unit? No worries. A quick lesson is included. Each guest will find a geocaching trinket to leave on a future treasure hunt.

Fishing Frenzy (May to September)
Bring fish tales to life with your closest friends at your very own shore-fishing party. Catch and release as many fish as you can. We’ll provide the poles, bait and fishing hole.
