Spring Break Kids Club Richmond- Lasers and Lanes!

When:

April 12, 2017 7:30 am - 4:00 pm

April 20, 2017 7:30 am - 4:00 pm

Where:

Richmond AND Fredericksburg

April 12: CHS Richmond (4200 Fitzhugh Ave)

April 20: CHS Fredericksburg (4701 Market Street)

For our Spring Break Kid’s Club we will be warming up the day in a musical way! Daniel Goldschmidt, a trained music therapist, will be bringing our group together and helping us get to know each other through fun and interactive games involving his vast array of musical instruments. Better than the name game, his songs and challenges allow our kids and teens to work on their teamwork and ability to understand each other.

After we have hit all the right notes, we will be heading to laser tag where we will strap into our jet packs and take off on a glow-in-the-dark adventure. An extreme form of “tag” laser tag will allow our kids and teens to burn off steam while having fun and of course, working together to take down the counselors !

Following our laser adventure we will finish our day with a couple games of bowling. Our kids and teens will be able to relax with their newfound friends and show off their sweet bowling moves before we head back to CHS to finish our day.

COST: $20
Payment can be made in advance or the day of the trip at drop off. Please provide exact cash (no
change available) or check made out to CHS with ‘Kid’s Club’ in
the memo.
Participants will bring their own lunches to each Kid’s Club to preserve as much time as possible for fun.

AGES: Attendees 6-18, Counselors-in-training 16-21
