Ice Den Skating (Free w/ Pogo Pass!) ~ We had fun!

Me (Juli) with my kids and nieces and nephew at Ice Den.

We love our Pogo Passes!  We kept cool at Ice Den yesterday and can return once a month for free!  They have a Chandler or Scottsdale location.

The pass gets you in to a total of 21 venues for FREE!!

A few have an equipment charge, but most are totally free.  (Ice skating charges $3 for skates, unless you bring them.)  Full details and restrictions are on their website.

With this affiliate link or code BARGAIN, you pay only $44.98 (limited time summer rate).

My kids are heading to Sunsplash for the night splash tonight — already paid for with our pass price.  We’re having all kinds of fun this summer!

Here’s all that’s included:

FREE Apple Camp for Kids 8-12 (Register Soon, Fills Up!)

Apple offers free camps for kids every summer, at their Apple stores.  Spots fill up, so register here soon.

The graphic above shows the classes you can choose from.  It looks like they last for 1 1/2 hours.

Here are the specifics, straight from their website.

Creating Characters and Composing Music
Kids ages 8-12 will create their own stories through drawings and sounds. Campers will start their session by sketching characters and scenes with iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, then they’ll explore the basics for composing a track using GarageBand. They’ll bring their story to life by adding vocals and finishing touches.

Stories in Motion with iMovie
Future filmmakers ages 8-12 will explore the creative process of turning their ideas into real movies. In this three-day session, Campers will learn how to brainstorm and storyboard. Then they’ll get hands-on with movie-making techniques like learning camera angles and editing with iMovie. On the final day, they’ll present their masterpieces.
Coding Games and Programming Robots
In this three-day session for kids ages 8-12, we’ll introduce programming through interactive play. Kids will learn visual-based coding by solving puzzles with Tynker. Then they’ll learn how to program Sphero robots, and even create fun stories starring Sphero as the main character.

A marketing rep emailed me about this event.  My family will be attending and may have access to a media only area, that is not open to the public.  It may include a chance to meet David Johnson.  I’m not even sure.  But, I am sure that we plan to be there having fun and that’s all that matters … oh, and that FREE thing!  :)
