How involved is Explorit in facilitating the Birthday Party?

An Explorit educator facilitates the entire 2 hour birthday party. The 1st hour takes place in the party room where guests will create two themed crafts and view a science lesson presented by the educator. The first hour concludes with guests enjoying their food and opening of gifts. The guests will then enter the main exhibit  for a private hour in the gallery.

Can I come early to set up my food ? How late can I stay to clean up?

You may come 20 minutes early to set up and stay 20 minutes later to clean up.  Room is already set-up for your use.

Who is included in my guest count?

All children attending the party will be counted as party guests. Adult guests participate for free. Children must be supervised by an adult guest at all times. Our parties accommodate a maximum of 20 children and 8 adults. If more guests (than maximum) are present, benches and picnic tables may be available for use.

Where does my group check in once they arrive at Explorit?

You may check in at the front window and meet the party coordinator who will show you to the West Wing party room. Your party guests can go directly to the West Wing.

What if I need to cancel my reservation?

$50 deposit is non-refundable. We will make every effort to re-schedule your party if dates are available. Remaining balance is due on the date of your party.

Can I have food delivered to Explorit?

Yes, but the party organizer must be present and available to receive and pay for the food or you may want to pay for it in advance.

Can I serve alcohol at the party?

No. Because our birthday parties cater to children and are held within a public park, alcohol or other controlled substance use is NOT allowed.

Can I rent a bounce house for the party?

Explorit is located within a public park (Mace Ranch Park). Any "grounds" rentals will need to be  approved by Davis City Parks and Recreation and are separate from Explorit's Birthday Party offerings. Explorit assumes no responsibility for the care and use of any outdoor bounce house/slide rentals.
