Reports to: Group Experience Supervisor
The Birthday Host is an essential player in the delivery of the museum’s experience. A child celebrates their birthday once every year, and at LCM we bring the party! Our Birthday Hosts are responsible for creating an extraordinary experience for each child celebrating with LCM. Each Birthday Host must have the ability to create meaningful memories for the birthday child, their family, and their guests. Birthday Hosts serve as the day-of, on-site coordinator for visitor’s birthday parties. Birthday Hosts set the tone and energy for the entire party and create a fun, playful, and child-centered atmosphere. If there are gaps in the party schedule for the day, Birthday Hosts will be reassigned to assist in other areas of the museum (i.e. Play Facilitator).
