They’ll also complete group challenges and design their own eco-warrior costume. Parents’ Night Out includes a Panera sandwich box with PB&J or Turkey as well as a late-night popcorn snack. Families are welcome to send their child with a dinner from home if that works better. Activities will happen outside as much as possible.
