Sensory-Friendly Wednesdays

EVERY Wednesday, 3PM-7PM, ages 15 and under!

Although we take a lot of pride in always being inclusive and sensory-friendly, we wanted to have a special night every week that specifically celebrates kids in the community with disabilities and still open for the general public as well.

Although some of our equipment does have weight and size restraints and we are typically geared towards kids 10 and under, we feel that there are some activities here that would benefit older kids with disabilities and sensory processing difficulties. Therefore, on Wednesdays from 3pm-7pm we will up our age limit to kids 15 and under for this one night every week.
