Your kids will get to experience activities like rock climbing, getting wild and exploring, being up close and personal with animals, gazing at the stars, live theatre visits, or practicing flips at trampoline parks. Plus, for the active kids who love to play sports and games, there’s different sports like soccer, basketball, volleyball, and more on offer.
