Gingerbread Jamboree

The Gin­ger­bread Jam­boree has a tar­get audi­ence of kids who can play for pedi­atrics.’ Var­i­ous games and activ­i­ties are set up through­out the west atri­um of the hos­pi­tal. As kids par­tic­i­pate in the games, they earn tokens which are then turned in. These tokens are redeemed dol­lar-for-dol­lar for the Pedi­atric Depart­ment at Ivin­son. There aren’t any costs to par­tic­i­pat­ing in the event (unless you want to reg­is­ter for the live gingerbread-building).

Activ­i­ties include the following:

  • Var­i­ous games of all skill levels
  • Vis­it San­ta and Mrs. Claus
  • Hot choco­late bar
  • Col­or­ing and cre­at­ing cards for patients at Ivin­son over the hol­i­day season
  • Live gin­ger­bread build­ing contest

The live gin­ger­bread build­ing com­pe­ti­tion is also held in the cafe­te­ria of the west atri­um at Ivin­son. Teams of four com­pete to take home the cov­et­ed Gin­ger­bread Jam­boree Cham­pi­on tro­phy. All mate­ri­als are pro­vid­ed, and the best struc­ture will win the prize. A total of four­teen teams are avail­able to enter, on a first-come, first-served basis. Team entries are $100 each.

the 2020 gin­ger­bread jam­boree event will not be held this year due to covid-19
