"Turkey Time" is theme for Parents’ Night Out session at JCPRD Gymnastics Center on Nov. 16

Parents Night Out MCAC

Children ages six to 12 are invited to enjoy fun activities during a Parents' Night Out planned in mid-November at the Johnson County Park and Recreation District's Mill Creek Activity Center in Shawnee.

The idea behind this gymnastics event is that parents can have a fun night out while their little ones are safe and having the time of their lives with their favorite gymnastics coaches enjoying games, crafts, activities, and snacks under the supervision of JCPRD staff. 

The November Parents' Night Out is called Turkey Time. Thanksgiving is around the corner, so participants will trot and run like turkeys do! To find this program in the My JCPRD Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under youth then under gymnastics. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keywords “gymnastics special event.” 

The November  Parents' Night Out will take place beginning at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 16, at the Mill Creek Activity Center, located at 6518 Vista Drive, Shawnee. The cost for one three-hour session is $27 for Johnson County residents or $30 for nonresidents.  For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359.
