Staffed Birthday Party Packages

Book your child's next birthday party with the Arlington Heights Park District and let us do the work - your child will love the party, and you'll love the convenience!   

We supply activities, crafts, supplies, and a party host to set up, clean up, and organize activities, and a professional instructor to lead themed activities like sports or crafts. We don't supply food or beverages. However, if you'd like to bring a cake or other snacks, just include that information when you register. While and our hosts will serve the treats in the last 20 minutes of the party. Please be aware, an adult with the party must be present at all times during the party.

Registration opens approximately two months in advance and closes two weeks before each party date. Party dates, times, locations, and themes are set and may not be changed. Available dates fill up quickly, so please book early!
