The Westport Weston Family Y will hold its first Youth Fun Night of the 2012-13 school year on Saturday, Sept. 15, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. All local fourth through graders are welcome to participate.
Activities include free-swim time in the Stauffer pool and open gym for basketball and other games such as mega-inflatables (including jousting), bingo, and the “make-your-own-sundae” station.
“Kids today, especially the middle-school crowd, need a safe and welcoming ‘home away from home’ that allows them to get away from the TV and their video-game consoles for an evening,” says Meaghan George, coordinator of the event. “It’s what we do every day, really, but kids like the fact that on Youth Fun Night, it’s unstructured play – good, old-fashioned active fun.”
The Family Y’s monthly Youth Fun Nights are open to Y Members and Non-Members alike and attract upwards of 150 local children. The cost is $12 pre-purchased at the Y or online at westporty.org; $15 at the door.
