For one magical evening, the children will be transformed into lords and ladies and travel back to Medieval Times. They will join the royal family on an unforgettable quest through the enchanted forest in our state-of-the-art gymnasium! There, they will develop their gymnastics skills while climbing castle walls, balancing across a mote and rolling across a drawbridge. They will save a princess from the fiery dragon and knock down the castle gate with their own battering ram. In art, they will learn about medieval creatures such as unicorns, griffins and dragons.
