We strive to provide a family environment at the HFC and the safety of your child is of the utmost importance. Children 6 weeks -11 years of age may join the center with limited membership privileges but they must be directly supervised by their parent at all times when in the facility unless they are in the PlayCenter. It is the responsibility of the parent to familiarize themselves with our age guidelines.
