Birthday Parties for Kids North Shore

The Y (formerly known as YMCA) North Shore Recreation Centre is ready to help make your child’s birthday one to remember

Take a whole lot of the stress out of party planning, and let us help you celebrate your child’s birthday The Y way! Our two hour party package includes an hour of play in our stadium, including free play with The Y equipment and organised games, all overseen by one of our instructors… and there’s a bouncy castle, just in case you needed something extra fun.

After burning off all that energy, the party shifts to our dedicated party room, where parents or guardians take over supervision – there’s a kitchen for any food preparation or storage, and plenty of space for the fun to keep on going.

Preschool Party with Bouncy Castle and 2 instructors. A maximum of 20 children. Games like Freeze, Relays, Rob the Nest, Bucket Toss, or your own specific game, can be organized by our instructors.

5 - 10-year-old Party with Bouncy Castle and 2 instructors. A maximum of 20 children. Children aged over 7 years can enjoy 15-20 minutes of a fun game of basketball, indoor football, hockey or cricket organized by our instructors.
