      Exploring Board Games

      Let's get together on the first Saturday of the school holidays to share our favourite board games, picnic/BBQ and play in the park. 

      Club Days are all about connecting and spending time with other gifted and twice-exceptional kids. Bring along your favourite games to share, or just come and join the others.

      Parents/caregivers need to stay too and are welcome to join in. It's a great chance to relax, share stories and make new friends.

      Outhwaite Hall is a small centrally located Auckland Council venue, with its own carpark, park, playground and attractive BBQ area. We have exclusive use of the venue for this event.
