This Harry Potter themed event is family friendly! Your kids will enjoy their time at Calgo's Hogwarts School of witchcraft and wizardry. Welcome to Calgo Gardens version of Hogwarts! Upon arrival each wizard will be sorted into their hall: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff. At this time, students will partake in a coloring activity. Next, every wizard will need a wand! Students will learn about wands and choose their own with unique personalized embellishments. Now that each wizard has their wand, students will learn how to use them at Spell Lessons. Then, students will get the chance to let some energy out in a rousing game of mock 'quidditch'. Each young wizard will get the chance to find their own golden snitch! The snitches are clever little creatures that hide inside our greenhouse... who will find the first one!? After quidditch, everyone will take a lunch break. The Tulip Tree cafe at Calgo Gardens is open for lunch or wizards may pack their own. After lunch, we will regroup for a lesson with Pomona Sprout on herbology. Students will learn about plants, including our mandrakes! We even have a secret spell that puts them to sleep. After Herbology class, students will partake in a potions class led by Professor Dolores Umbridge. She will be teaching the students a special potion to make slime! Lastly, the students will get to venture over to Hagrids hunt and enjoy seeing the animals he keeps watch over! Cost is $12 per child, No charge for Adults, please watch over your young wizards. Please contact our staff with any questions about the event. COVID-19 guide lines will be practiced
