The warmer months are upon us, and for many people with children, summer schedules are filling up. Before the season of sun and freedom disappears — and before you can even begin to wonder where it has gone — Life Time is here to help you plan for some regular you time while your kids learn, play, and are entertained.

Every week, Life Time Kids features Parents Night Out events, where your kids can hang out with others their age while taking part in games and activities related to that evening’s theme. There are Tween Takeover events held monthly, too.

“We use Parents Night Out events for much-needed date nights,” says Abby Banks, member at Life Time in Edina, Minn. “Between three kids in numerous activities, work, and other life obligations, it’s a great chance for my husband and I to reconnect. We know our kids are having the best time and being well taken care of at Life Time.”

Life Time families have even become friends thanks to Parents Night Out events. “We also use these nights to meet up with other Life Time parents,” says Banks. “We’ve developed such an amazing community here!”

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.

Surf & Turf

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

Surf’s up, dude! Kids will create tropical-themed crafts, design the tallest tower that can hold a beach ball, play beach-themed games, and compete in a hula hoop contest. Noodle-dance tag, noodle wars, and other activities are also featured at this fun luau.

Slime Squad

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

Slime at home? Messy! Slime at Life Time? Bring it on! Send your kids to this slime party where they’ll create custom slime colors and textures in the “science lab.” Kids will also enjoy crafting with tin foil: younger kids will make mosaics using cutout shapes of tin foil while older kids will use tin foil, washable markers, and paper to make art prints.

After they’ve made slime and created art, kiddos can chow down on pizza before competing in some awesome gym games such as island-themed dodgeball and sink the ship, and tag games such as sharks and minnows and Ollie Ollie Octopus.

After the event, kids will receive a booklet of experiments to try at home to keep the fun going.

Astronaut Training

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

Calling all astronauts to report to mission control: This event is going to be out of this world! Kids will see if they have what it takes to be an astronaut through activities including building flying saucers, painting planets, creating art with galaxy chalk, and playing gym games such as “Man from Mars” and “Catching Stars.”

Super Builder Challenge

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

Does your child have what it takes to compete (all in the name of good fun, of course!)? Kids will be put to the test to race against their friends and the clock in block-building challenges and Minute to Win It-style games. Their accuracy and creativity will be challenged.

After the competition, kids will refuel with a pizza party and if time allows, play robot tag and balance tag in the gym.

If your kids attend and enjoy this event, try your own version of it at home: “Family Activity Night: Super Builder Challenge

Yoga GLO

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

Kids will sample our Kids Studio SOL Yoga class at this glow-in-the-dark party. They’ll kick off the night making glow-in-the-dark bracelets to wear during their flow session, while younger kids will make glow-in-the-dark or neon slime. Then the lights go off, the glowsticks come out, and yoga is on!

So Long Summer

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

Give summer the sendoff it deserves with a final bash! Kids will play gym games such as ice cream tag and swim or sand, make crafts like paper popsicles or paper leis (depending on age), and have a pizza party with their friends. So long, summer!

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 my.lifetime.life or in the Life Time Digital app by clicking “View All Events” and under “Activity,” filtering by “Kids.”
