Birthday Parties

Parties are 2.5 hours long. During the first two hours, NESS educators will run the program of your choice. The last 30 mins is yours for food, cake, gifts, etc. You will need to provide your own food, cake, utensils, tablecloths, decorations & party favors. NO balloons and NO Styrofoam please!

Green Up Your Party by bringing re-usable or recyclable plates, cups, utensils and napkins, wrap gifts in newspaper or comics, bring bottles of juice or soda instead of individually packaged drinks, send an electronic party invitation, and of course Reduce, Reuse and Recycle!

Parties are held on the weekends or weekdays. Due to the high demand in the summer please discuss time options with our office staff.
