HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

By assisting with games at our theme park, you will help ensure our visitors have a one-of-a-kind experience and help promote children's motor and problem-solving skills through our interactive games on Game Day.

DESCRIPTION

Every first Saturday is Game Day! From 11:30 to 1:30, families will drop by the Teddy Bear Picnic Area and play with us! We will have various outdoor games and activities for children of all ages to promote their motor and problem-solving skills. Volunteers will facilitate Game Day activities by inviting families and kids to play and reinforcing safety. There will be 4-5 activities on the Teddy Bear Picnic Area lawn.


ITEMS NEEDED

1. Reliable transportation to Fairyland.

2. Water bottle, snack, sunscreen and a hat, as desired (as Fairyland is 100% outdoors)


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

Minimum age is 12, with adult supervision during the entire shift. You and your grown-up will be paired together at the same station, making it a fun team/family effort! Parental consent is required in order to sign-up. We provide a waiver form for your parent/guardian to complete.
