Let's Get Back to Basics!

Lets face it, our kids today are NOT EXPERIENCING CHILDHOOD PLAY the way we did. We didn't have computers, xboxes, cellphones or mobile devices! We played outdoors, read books, built forts and got our hands dirty.

Now that we are parents, we can't ignore that our kids need time dedicated to ACTIVE PLAY. They are so stimulated through technology and our fast paced society that the days of kids being bored enough to use their imaginations is gone!

KIDS UNLUGGED is just what it states. A place and a philosophy that kids need time to be UNPLUGGED. They need a place to be engaged to use their imaginations, exercise their bodies and play actively with their families and friends.


We love technology! We just want to provide a space where kids can be engaged and excited about going without having to be electronically entertained.

We also, need a location that can grow with the business! As our business grows, so will our offerings.


IMAGINE:

-Dropping your child off at KIDS UNPLUGGED for some healthy and fun free play will you get some needed errands done!

-Your child taking a class while you get to get your workout in too!

-Go on a DATE WITH YOUR SPOUSE! We'll take care of the rest and make sure they have a blast!!

-Playing with you kids, having healthy food options and creating some serious fun memories...

-Rent the whole space for a birthday! Foam pit fun?? Best birthday ever!!

-IMAGINATIVE PLAY CLASSES
-GYMNASTIC CLASSES
-MUSIC CLASSES
-AERIAL DANCE CLASSES
-FAMILY FUN NIGHTS
and more!

Not only will KIDS UNPLUGGED serve as a space for everyone to play (adults too!) at an affordable rate, we'll also be giving our gymnastics program a home do we can offer tons of classes for everyone!

Please give what you can to help our town, community, state and world raise our kids with healthy bodies, encouraged imaginations and most of all happy hearts.

THANK YOU!

We are officially the tenants in RENY'S PLAZA right next to Minnows!!! The money we have raised so far has gotten us into the space! and now....

WE NEED TO GET THE SPRING FLOOR IN FIRST! Once the floor is in, we can start classes right away!

In the spirit of teamwork and community, I would like to present a CHALLENGE! To help us get to our goal follow these steps!

1. Donate any amount! (no amount too small ya know!)

2. Copy this statement:

I just donated a few dollars to KIDS UNPLUGGED: a NEW FAMILY FUN CENTER in Belfast! Think trampolines, gymnastics, parkour, climbing walls, open family gym times, etc! (Imagine me climbing out of a foam pit. Funny huh? ) Let's make that happen... :)
I'm tagging/sharing with you because I thought you might want to be help them raise some money for their SPRING FLOOR. Even if you can't donate please share this to spread the word... That would be awesome.

3. Paste this statement in a shared post, comment or tag to someone you think would want to support Kids Unplugged to open up in Belfast!

4. BOOM. you just helped Belfast get a little healthier and a little more fun!

That was karmically genius of you.

Good Morning Everyone!

Thank you to all who have donated!
Just so you know, it is confirmed that we will be getting the 2000 sqft space in Reny's plaza!!!

Not only will we be offering Gymnastic classes but we will be offering Dance classes, Toddler Tumbling and Free Play classes, and I've also been talking to teachers for a variety of classes for teens and adults too!

I'm really excited about offering Parkour Classes (American Ninja Warrior Classes!!!!) If you've ever wanted to be a Ninja or a superhero, this would be the class for you.

We really feel strongly that the TEENS in Belfast really need some alternate choices for those that don't participate in sports! Parkour classes could be a really great option!

Check the video below out!!!! Would you or your kids be interested in this?

Please spread the word so that we can raise enough money to provide these classes asap!!!!!

WOOHOOOOO! I'm so excited I can't stand it!
This is PARKOUR! TEENS will LOVE this!

Our title has changed! Although we are still raising money for BELFAST GYMNASTICS... we realized that Belfast needs more than just a gymnastics program.

It needs a family fun destination! We want to provide a super fun, healthy and imaginative space for our town to utilize to improve their health, family connection and creativity!!

Let's give BELFAST GYMNASTICS an incredible home as well as a play space for ALL OF US to use!!!!

I mean, who doesn't want to jump into a foam pit or scale a climbing wall????

WOOHOOOOOOO!!!!!!
BELFAST NEEDS A FAMILY FUN CENTER!
