We parents love to throw birthday parties but we tend to forget how stressful they can Choosing a location, theme, entertainment, food, favors and guest list can sometimes take months to plan. Did I mention the kid is only turning 1?

Charles County Recreation is now offering hosted birthday parties at various locations in the county including community centers, swimming pools and gymnasiums. Parties are for children 4-12 (unless noted) and all you have to do is pick a theme, send the invites, bring the cake and show up!!!

All parties are two hours on select Friday evenings, Saturdays, or Sundays, varying by location. For the first hour of the party, staff will lead the kids through the selected games or activity. The second hour is for your celebration. They provide pizza, drinks, goodie bags, and paper products.
