GYC having a busy new year

January 09, 2019
Nerf games, a night out for parents, and a big Valentine's gala for families are some of the events going on at the Gilford Youth Center for the first few months of the new year.

The GYC is running its Nerf League every Sunday night through Feb. 3 from 5:30-7 p.m. Kids in grades two through five can participate in different Nerf dart gun "battles" such as Capture the Flag, Free for All, Steal the Chicken, Defend the Fort, and others. The games will go on in the gym on a course made with cardboard boxes and other kinds of safe materials. Nerf guns will be provided, though kids are welcome to bring their own. All ammo as well as protective eyewear will be provided by the GYC. Participants must come with sneakers and comfortable clothing.

The cost is $65 per person and space is limited.

Parents, guardians, and caretakers can drop their kids off at the GYC on Jan. 25 for a Parents' Night Out. Potty trained children ages two through 12 are welcome to spend some time with GYC staff from 5:30-8:30 p.m. for activities including free play, a movie, a pizza dinner with juice and water to drink, a jumpy house. The activity costs $25 for one child and $10 for each additional child. The event is limited to 20 kids.

Families will have a fancy night of fun at the third annual Sweetheart Gala on Feb. 16. Kids, parents, guardians, and more family members are welcome to dress up in nice clothes, walk the red carpet, and enjoy a dinner and dance. There will also be a photo booth and a chocolate fountain.

The Sweetheart Gala will take place from 6-8:30 p.m., tickets are $20 per person, $75 for a family of four, and $85 for a family of five. Proceeds benefit the GYC.
