Golden Triangle Gymnastics of Conrad are preparing for the Holiday break with many activities for your school aged children.
So far on the schedule is a two hour tea party for girls ages 5 to 7 on Dec. 28 and a four hour Super Duper Power Kids camp that is still in the works for January.
Girls must get registered in advance for the tea party as there is limited space available. Girls are asked to show up in gymnastic attire and can expect gymnastics, games, crafts and, of course, snacks with “tea”.
