Voted "Best Place for a Kid's Birthday" by Main Line Life


A rousing blend of adventure, learning and fun makes Riverbend the premier spot for birthday parties on the Main Line! Riverbend combines scavenger hunts, stream stomps, live animal experiences and nature games to ensure your child will leave with a smile and lifelong birthday memories.

Choose from one of these exciting themes or work with our staff to create a unique program to meet the interests of the birthday child!

**All themes, except Wilderness Survival, can be adapted for ages 4-9**

  • Close Encounters- (Great for inside or outside) Let’s get up close and personal with the animals that live at Riverbend! Meet reptiles, amphibians, mammals and even invertebrates! We will play games, meet live animals, and touch exciting nature artifacts!
  • Gone Buggy- (Ideal April-October) No backbone? No problem! Let’s explore the fascinating world of bugs as we travel around Riverbend’s ecosystems in search of everything from Leopard slugs, to millipedes, to butterflies!
  • Surviving Winter- (Perfect November-March) Have you ever wondered how animals survive the winter? Discover the wonder of winter as we search for signs of animal life, look for tracks in the snow, go bird watching and learn about amazing winter adaptations.
  • Stream Stompers- (Ideal for May-September) Let’s get our feet wet as we explore the stream for all the fascinating creatures that call it home!
  • Nature Detectives- (Perfect in all seasons) Explore Riverbend’s trails as we discover hidden artifacts along our exciting nature scavenger hunt hike!
  • Wilderness Survival- (Perfect in all seasons) Are you a wilderness survivor? We will teach you the techniques to start a fire or show you how to build a weather resistant shelter so you can explore the wilderness with confidence! (**Appropriate for ages 7-9**)
