Are you already hearing “I’m bored” and “I don’t have anything to do?” Are you looking for family and budget-friendly activities this summer? Do your kids love to play and explore new parks and activities in the community?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then we have the perfect solution for you! Christie Clinic presents FREE playdates at six amazing locations around the Champaign-Urbana area. You won’t want to miss them! Make sure to take note of these dates, locations, and themes. For detailed information including themes and activities, click on the events below.
Activities will vary at each playdate, but they will all include 1.5 hours of FREE family fun for all ages. This year, we are headed to Mahomet, Savoy, Champaign and Urbana. We will be playing footgolf; doing gymnastics; learning about safety; and making new friends.
We want to thank our friends at Christie Clinic for their generous support of our summer playdate series for the fourth consecutive summer. Also, special thanks to the Champaign County Forest Preserve; Champaign Gymnastics Academy; Champaign Park District; Urbana Park District; and Savoy Recreation Center for hosting our playdates.
We’re also excited to have CIBM Bank and the Champaign Biggby Coffee at all of our events, bringing fun activities and/or yummy coffee and snacks. Some events will have additional special guests, participants and activities.
Be sure to follow them on social media and thank them for helping to make these summer playdates a summer treat for us all.
Please note that in case of inclement weather, our playdates will be canceled. We will post cancelations to our Facebook and Instagram accounts, so make sure to follow us for the latest information. We’re hoping for sunny skies and happy times!
