Is my child too old for a My Gym party?
Although the majority of our classes are for children 6 and under, we do classes for children all the way up to 9 years old. That means we are fully prepared to keep your older kids having the time of their lives too. Everyone will have fun even the parents!
How many children can I invite?
Our package includes 15 children. You can add more children at a cost of $15 per child. ( 30 children being the max. With more than a weeks notice) The birthday child is free and not included in the guest count.
Can I bring a character actor or a pinata?
Sure can! We love to work with character actors and pinatas are fun too. Do keep in mind this will lessen the amount of time we will have to play games and activities. We do ask for a heads up to prepare and plan according. No face paint or live animals in the gym. Yes! Someone did inquire about bring livestock before :)
What time should I arrive at the party?
We ask that the host arrives no more than 15 minutes prior to your scheduled party, as we will be cleaning & preparing the gym for the birthday party - as well as allowing the party prior to yours to exit. You are welcome to drop any décor, paper goods off ahead of time for us to set up prior to your arrival.
**If you require more time for a "Pinterest-style" setup, please do reach out to us so we can do our best to accommodate. Please note for bigger/extravagant setups you will have to arrive with as much of it already prepared. Set up for more intricate banners/backdrops, balloon arches, a large amount of decor, etc. will be pushed into guest arrival.
Is there an additional charge for parents and/or caregivers?
There is no additional charge for parents or caregivers.
Is each child required to have a signed waiver?
For insurance purposes, ALL children must have a waiver completed and signed by a parent or guardian. My Gym provides a link to the party to send out to guests. We also have a custom QR code available for guests to scan upon arrival for a touch-free sign-in process!
*this will have to be done for each guest. Members and non-members alike.
