Fall typically brings some order after an often chaotic summer. As schedules begin to form and your family settles into its routine, you may be searching for opportunities for child-care support or ways to keep your kids active.

Many Life Time members welcome Parents Night Outs into their weekly calendars. These themed events allow kiddos the chance to hang out with others their age while learning, playing, and having fun. And parents have that time to run errands, catch up on to-dos, go out for date nights — whatever they desire.

“My kids enjoy the different event themes,” says Abby Banks, a member at Life Time in Edina, Minn. “It’s the first thing they ask about when I tell them we’re going to Parents Night Out. They love that each event is different and offers new activities and art projects. They also have great friends they’ve met at these events. My older children always make sure their friends’ parents sign them up for the same ones!”

Tween Takeover

Ages: 9 to 13 years old
Length: Typically 3 hours

At Tween Takeover nights, kids rule! This time is for your tween to decide what they want to do at their athletic country club: They can play sports, create crafts, challenge one another to a board game, or participate in other fun activities. The space is theirs.

Superheroes Unite

Ages: 4 to 12 years old (ages may vary by club)
Length: 3 hours

Calling all superheroes! Your kiddos will play games such as “superhero tag” and “planet Krypton” in the gym and create themed arts and crafts including paper capes and paper-plate shields. If your child is pre-K, they will build superhero secret fortresses. Your kids will want to get to Life Time in a flash for this Parents Night Out.

Football Funday

Ages: 4 to 12 years old (ages may vary by club)
Length: 3 hours

Kids’ sports skills will be put to the test during this GameFace Sport event. A kid-friendly version of an NFL combine, this offering encourages young athletes to perform skills and drills to show off their abilities.

After being divided into smaller groups, junior athletes will be challenged to perform movements that test their coordination, strength, and speed. There will be multiple activities to participate in, including a football relay, flag tag, and football-themed Minute to Win It games.

Kids can get competitive with their friends if they wish, but there isn’t a winner of the night — everyone is encouraged to simply perform their best individually.

There will also be art projects to create, including banners and foam fingers.

Mini Monsters and Halloween Fun Fest

Ages: 4 to 6 years old for Mini Monsters; 7 to 12 years old for Halloween Fun Fest (ages may vary by club)
Length: 3 hours

All preschool-age kids are invited to dress up in costumes and come to the Mini Monsters event. Get ready for ghoulish games, captivating crafts, and a costume contest. Your mini monster will be in for a frightfully fun night!

All other kids are welcome to join Halloween Fun Fest. Are they up for ghosts, goblins, and witches brew? Come for the costume contest, crafts, and thrills.

Both events will include a variety of activities, including glow-in-the-dark slime, a Halloween dance, spider dodgeball, and scarecrow tag.

Common FAQs About Kids Events

Tori Limmel, Kids curriculum manager at Life Time, shares answers to commonly asked questions from parents.

Life Time Editorial | What can I expect if I sign my child up for a Life Time Kids event?

Tori Limmel | Each event has a theme, and we build the curriculum around that so there are always fun, new activities for kids to take part in. There are two themes per month, each offered on two different dates. The first two weeks of the month feature the first theme, and the second two weeks, the other. This helps us accommodate family schedules and allows a greater chance for every child to attend every theme if they wish.

Regardless of the theme, every curriculum follows an intentionally designed format: There’s always arts and crafts time, a S.T.E.A.M. project, a gym game or a sports activity — or some combination of those — and then we always serve dinner, which is usually pizza and juice.

Events typically last two to three hours and can accommodate kids ages 4 to 12 years old (ages may vary by club based on state requirements). Tween Takeover events are generally for kids ages 9 to 13 years old, though that may vary by club as well.

Our Life Time Kids team members go through training before being entrusted with your kids. This training includes CPR training, a child-development course, and a classroom-management course to ensure your kids are in the safest hands.

LTE | When do kids’ events take place?

TL | Kids’ events occur every Saturday. Depending on the club, there may also be additional events on Fridays.

LTE | Do parents need to stay at the club while their child is attending an event?

TL | No. Parents can leave the club or stay on site. Most often, we see parents using this time in the club, whether that be to take a fitness class, use the space and machines on the workout floor, relax in the sauna or steam room, grab a bite to eat in the LifeCafe, or hit the pickleball court with friends.

LTE | Is there a cost to these events? And do you have to be a Life Time member to participate?

TL | All Kids events are included at no cost in Junior Memberships. Your child does need to be on a Life Time Junior Membership to attend the events.

LTE | How do I sign my child up for an event?

TL | Reservations can be made up to 30 days prior to each event. View the schedule on or in the Life Time Digital app by clicking “View All Events” and under “Activity,” filtering by “Kids.”
