2019 Family Fall Festival

Ali DeCamillis September 18, 2019

Saturday, October 12 from 3pm-6pm

Gilda’s Club members, family and friends are welcome to join in on some extra special fall fun on Saturday, October 12 between 3-6pm. There will be some kind of fun for everyone! Do you have secret (or not so secret) aspirations of being a Ninja Warrior…or maybe even meeting one?!? Well this might be your opportunity! Ninja Anywhere will be parking their rig in our parking lot to provide us an extra fun time. You can put your Ninja skills to the test on:

  • Warped Wall
  • Ninja Rings
  • Trapeze Bars
  • Floating Monkey Bards
  • Climbing Rope
  • Floating Board
  • Rock Climbing wall

(Anyone who wants to challenge themselves on the Ninja Rig will have to sign a waiver, which can be filled out beforehand here)

Register for the Family Fall Festival here


And if you have other fall desires such as sipping hot cider while listening to live music, creating fall-inspired crafts, or playing some good ole’ fashion games…we’ve got you covered. The U of M Camp Kesem counselors will be joining in on the fun. All campers and their families are invited to attend!

Our friends from Adobe Lightroom will be back with their professional photographers to take individual, couples and family photos. Not feeling the sit down photo opp? Bring a friend…or two…or three and swing by the Adobe photo booth.

Never been to the clubhouse but interested in checking it out? If your life is impacted by cancer, then this place is for you and the Fall Family Festival is a great time to do so. Want to bring a family member or friend to share your Gilda’s experience with them – sign them up and bring them with!

The afternoon will be filled with indoor and outdoor activities for all ages. These activities include, but are not limited to:

  • Ninja Anywhere featuring a ninja rig obstacle course, two large inflatables and ground obstacles.
  • Free giveaways while supplies last!
  • Individual, couple, and family photos by Adobe Lightroom and a photo booth
  • Fall arts and crafts activities
  • Games for both kids and adults
  • Snacks!
