Benedictine University will provide area children with a variety of activities that promote fitness and fun while offering their parents a break with its “Kids Nite Out” program from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Saturdays, November 17, December 8, January 12 and February 9 in the campus’ Dan and Ada Rice Center. Children can choose from a variety of activities including swimming, arts and crafts, kickball, relay races, basketball, bingo and group games. Kids are asked to bring a swimsuit, towel and gym bag with items clearly marked with a family name. It is not necessary for kids to bring any money. A treat and drink will be provided and there will be no items for sale. Kids can bring a snack. “Kids Nite Out” is open to any boy or girl ages 4 through 12. The fee is $15 per child per date. Each child must be registered by a parent. Registration will be held at the door on each night of the program. Mail-in registration is not available. Doors open at 5:45 p.m. and children must be picked up promptly at 9:00 p.m. The event raises money for Benedictine’s women’s varsity softball team. The team’s members serve as moderators of the event. For more information, call Kate Keller at (630) 829-6149.
