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
