Have one of the last remaining teens who hasn't fused their hands to video game controllers? The Fort Boise Community Centers offers activities for children and teens that run the gamut from solitary activities like craft and art classes to the more social things like drama and sports. Classes for adults are available, too, for those who want to make a family affair out of it this winter.
In addition to X-Treme Gamers Night, teens can enroll in pottery, clay, dance, music and drama classes, learn a new sport like golf or karate, or just hang out with friends during Late Night Fridays. Adults have similar choices when it comes to classes, but with a much wider variety available for the picking: knit, paint, throw pottery, belly dance, ballroom dance and more.
As winter settles in, so do cold-weather sports. Beyond Fort Boise, Boise Parks and Rec offers activities at Idaho Iceworld. Adults and children can learn the basics of ice skating, or step it up with on-ice cardio workouts or figure-skating lessons. Team sports include ice hockey and the somewhat mysterious world of the stone-throwing curlers.
