‘Parent Survival Night’ – Need we say more? While this one is “for the kids”, we all know it is just as much for the parents (wink, another reason to love Silverleaf). Ongoing parent survival nights include cool themed activities like “Wonderful Wizards” where kids learn magic and watch “The Wizards of Waverly Place” to “Use Your Noodle”, a night of fun with favorite kids’ games. Add in other activities like 50s sock hops, ice cream socials, learning science by playing with bubble gum and junior golf clinics for the littlest ones on the links and it is enough to make us sigh and say… “Oh, to be a kid again!”

Silverleaf offers so many world class amenities, no doubt finding daily indulgences will never be an issue. Let’s face it, life gets stressful and we all need some time to unwind. From a first-hand perspective, we can tell you, fellow parents L-O-V-E this perk.
