We are very happy to announce that the Play Adventures Pop-Up Play Day in downtown Merced on Friday, June 21st was a great success! This play day fundraising kickoff event was an open demonstration for kids of all ages, and we were so happy to see the families getting involved with the activities and having a whole lot of fun! Read Naomi's blog about the event here:  

Play Adventures is relatively new to Merced, still only less than a year!  In order to create more awareness about our offerings, as well as establish ourselves as a non-profit community partner, we are looking to hold a few fundraising events in the year ahead. Our aim is to incorporate self-directed play opportunities for children and adolescents using loose parts, under the supervision of trained Playworkers, cultivating a community that understands and values the importance of play.

If you’re unsure about what exactly Play Adventures does, just remember how you used to play back in the day when you were a kid. Who were your friends? Where did you meet up? What did you play with that wasn’t toys or video games? Did you create forts out of cardboard boxes, or use pots and kitchen utensils to form a rock band? Play Adventures wants to bring the freedom of imagination you had back then to the newer generations - to create different environments using various loose parts and recyclable materials, allowing kids to explore their personal interests. 

Our fundraising campaign will run until July 30, 2019, so please consider donating directly to our fundraiser through our GoFundMe page. Please click on the DONATE NOW button to make an online contribution towards bringing more self-directed play opportunities for our youngest citizens in Merced!
