Hints & Tips

Expecting children to attend your event? You may want to use the lower level for a movie or fun crafts and games to keep the kids occupied. Most kids start to get restless during the evening hours and really need a place where they can relax and get away to enjoy age appropriate activities. You will need to arrange for adult supervision and some form of entertainment (i.e. games, art supplies, videos, etc.). See your Lodge representative for more ideas on how to entertain your young guests.
