Animals at APEC are doing their warm-up stretches and gearing up for some serious sports fun!  Join APEC educator, Mr. Jacob, as you learn the incredible athletic abilities of the animal kingdom. Wear your favorite team's jersey while brainstorming together what games frogs, tarantulas, ostriches, and squirrels would accel at, based on their unique skill sets. Then, get ready to cheer on two of the APEC animal athletes and predict which of these four-footed all-stars will complete the brand-new APEC obstacle course first! Masks must be worn by all participants for the entire program. Limited to 10 participants. Ages 7-12, drop-off. Advanced registration required. Email contact@alleypond.com with any questions.
