Kevin, just a quick note of thanks to you, Tanner and Brooklyn. Landon and his friends had a fantastic time at his party on Saturday. Tanner and Brooklyn did a fantastic job keeping the kids engaged and active. They were very organized, and I was really impressed. We’ll definitely look into the other programs you provide. What a great service you offer the children in our community! With Thanks, Sandra

— Landon’s Birthday – Jan.28th

Dale had THE BEST time at his party on Saturday. We all had the best time. Everything felt so well planned and was beautifully executed. Ali and Colin were fantastic with the kids (not only Dale and his friends but Dale's younger siblings as well) and were terrific hosts for the facility. We were so happy with the flow of the party, with the location, with the decorations, with the equipment, and with the overall experience. I've already shared the link to your website with friends in town and have highly recommended this as a birthday party option. Colin also gave us a run-down on your summer camps and I have the sign-up date marked on the calendar.  Thank you all for giving Dale such a wonderful birthday party experience. I truly mean it when I say that I think he'll remember this party for the rest of his life.  Kate

— Dale’s Birthday – Feb. 4th

Thank you so much Kevin. All the kids had a great time, even me and my husband. The coaches let us try it out. It was something. I love it.

— Host Parent 

This party was amazing! I give it a 10/10. Every kid should have one like this now  - Birthday Guest of Honour 

We just wrapped up our Nerf birthday party at UofG for our son, James.
I just wanted to reach out and highlight what an amazing job both Colin and Brooklyn did as hosts and facilitators. They were friendly, polite, cheerful, and great with the kids. They kept everyone entertained and handled any of the few incidents where kids weren't perfectly happy. The party was a great success, in no small part thanks to their efforts.
Cheers,Owen
