Belvoir Parents Night Out is designed to be a free, three hour, no-strings-attached, service to the families of active duty military and first responders living in the Fort Belvoir area. Our screened and loving childcare workers plan an excellent program for your children that will keep them engaged and learning through the whole event.

Parents Night Out: The program is for ages 0-12 years and includes dinner, music, games, stories and a great closing show. Each couple participating will receive a gift card to the local restaurant when you drop off your children at the BPNO event. All this to express our thanks to you for your selfless service to our community and country.

The events are sponsored by Pillar Church of Woodlawn conveniently located about a 1/4 mile from Pence Gate near Fort Belvoir Army Base.
