This month, Mario’s played host to some very lucky kids as we held 2 sessions of our inaugural Mario’s Kids Camp on August 9th at Mario’s St. Augustine and then on the 16th at Mario’s Montrose, Chaguanas restaurant. Children were selected via a ‘Sing to Win” radio contest. To enter, children under the age of 12 had to call in with their name and the access phrase “ I’m …and I’m a Mario’s kid!” They then sang our Mario’s Kids jingle for a chance to win and participate in the camp.
Participants were granted exclusive access to view our operations from the inside. This included a tour of our kitchens, which emphasized the need for cleanliness in the food service industry; and illustrated the step by step process of creating their favourite Mario’s Pizza.
After the more serious part of the day was concluded, it was time to have some fun, and there was no shortage of fun activities for our campers to partake in. They played Balo Ball, Charades, Pass the Message, Balloon Toss, and several other games. We also let their creativity shine with some coloring and drawing activities as well as donut decorating, which of course, was one of their favorites! The fun times culminated with a dance party with Mr. Mario himself, and the children were thrilled to watch his funky moves.
Both the kids and the adults who supervised them had a tremendous time, and we are already looking forward to doing it again next year, maybe at more locations! Be sure to check us out often for more information on upcoming family fun activities!
