Starbuck, Summer 2023 Loose Parts Adventure Playground - In Starbuck July 26 & August 23


Pop up Playground (Ages 5+)

Come to our Pop-Up Playground for a REVOLUTION in play… LOOSE PARTS PLAY!

In an open outdoor space, children will use their imaginations and play with loose parts! Loose parts include: tarps, bungee cords, tires, milk crates, cardboard packaging and more! This type of play is unstructured, and RISKY!

Risky play is about discovery and finding out what we are capable of. It shapes us in unexpected ways. We often assume risk is negative but, it does not have to be!  As they begin to play, children are remarkably quite good at mitigating their own risk. They come up with their own rules, negotiate, collaborate and cooperate with other children. Children will have the opportunity to make creative decisions, test their boundaries and limits and learn skills to take into adolescence and adulthood.

Learn more about Loose Parts Play!

When you come to the Loose Parts Playground site, our Summer Program Leaders will greet parents and children and orient them with the space and remind of the expectations to be safe and respectful. Participants can drop in and stay as long as they would like.

*Please register your family for these programs, as we would like to know how many participants to expect!*
*All ages are welcome! Children under 5 must have parental supervision.*
