Play Ball – at the Jungle

Team sports can be an incredibly wonderful experience in a child’s life. Whether they begin when they’re first eligible based on age, or whether it comes as a desire later. Extra-curricular, athletic activities are a great way to encourage exercise, teach sportsmanship, ethics, and fair play, strengthen friendships, and most importantly, to inspire fun.

Coaches are often looking for ways to motivate their team and inspire teamwork. The best foundation for a cohesive team is one that is built on fun. While winning is great, it’s always important to remember the words of the great sportswriter Grantland Rice; “It’s not whether you win or lose; it’s how you play the game.” As cliché as that may be, the basic tenant of truth holds true. Winning is of no great value if it wasn’t fun in the attempt, and the sting of a loss can be lessened if the kids are always encouraged to have fun.

What better way to begin the process of building team fun than to start your season with a team event at Scooter’s Jungle. Kids who did not know each other before the beginning of a season will get through that awkward first meeting if it takes place at a fun, neutral environment that encourages fun first. A team event at Scooter’s Jungle is the perfect ice-breaker.

Your team members already know each other pretty well? Then how about a mid-season playtime event at Scooter’s just for fun, or even as an incentive for being great sports and working together toward a mutual goal, or as a pick-me-up morale booster for the kids! Looking for a different way to celebrate the end of the season? A trip to Scooter’s Jungle is the perfect children’s activity that will make you an all-star amongst coaches and the parents. Give us a call. Our amazing staff will make your team event a walk in the park. Even better, it’ll be a romp in the jungle!

Why Scooter’s Jungle is FUN for Parents Too!

As a mom, I know that when kids birthday party time rolls around, I start to get a little nervous. It’s not that I don’t love celebrating the natal anniversaries of each of my delightful offspring, or seeing the joy in their faces on that one day the world revolves around them. It’s the work. All that planning, all the shopping for party favors, food and all the fussing are enough to give even the most organized parent a panic attack. And that doesn’t even include the day of the party. The prep, the decorating, the game planning, the food…OY! I’m exhausted already.

Which is why when I heard that most magical of phrases coming out of a mom’s mouth after hosting her daughter’s birthday party at Scooter’s Jungle; “I didn’t lift a finger. They did all the work.” My attention was fully and completely hers. And she wasn’t the first, or the only to sing these praises. I heard over and over again words that only a parent could love. Words like; “We really didn’t have to do anything but enjoy ourselves.” Wait, what? Enjoy myself? Sounds fabulous! Please continue. “Yep. We played with the kids. We slid on the slide. We went through the obstacle course. Their awesome event staff played with the kids, and when the staff ran games, we played along. We even had a chance to visit with our friends. It was awesome!” Well yeah, that sounds awesome, but you had to share the room with other people right? “Oh no! We had the room to ourselves. It was our own private space for the duration of our party.” Okay, that’s great. But what about food, drinks, all that stuff? You had to set up and serve, right? “Nope, their staff did it all. They unloaded my car, they greeted our guests, they checked in the gifts…which made thank you notes later a breeze…they set up the cake and dining room, they even served all the food and drinks to the kids.” This is incredible. I’m sold. But wait! What about clean-up? I have to do that, right? “Absolutely not. They do that too. AND, they’ll help you load your car after the party too.”

Am I dreaming? Is there such a party nirvana that will take the stress out of my childrens birthday party world? Yes there is. The best part is, though it’s an awesome party venue, Scooter’s Jungle is much more. They have Open Play for Toddlers and for All Ages, they’ll help you plan and run fundraisers, and it’s a great place for kids to burn off some of that extra steam.

I heard nothing but glowing reviews about their cleanliness, their diligence with safety, their amazing and helpful staff. But what really made it all so great was seeing the smiles on parent’s faces and hearing them say; “I really had fun. It was good to play and feel like a kid again.” All this and more puts Scooter’s Jungle at the top of my “Parent’s Best Friend” list. Do parents love Scooter’s Jungle? Do monkeys peel their bananas from the bottom? Why yes, yes they do!
