Often the Club stresses all of its youth development outcome achievements – youth using drugs and alcohol less than their peers, higher commitment to school, on time grade completion…. We want to also stress how important it is for kids to just play. Kids learn through play. They hone motor skill, critical thinking skills and develop important social skills. In partnership with the nonprofit KaBOOM!, Unilever, the Disney Company, and a host of other community organizations and volunteers the Club has built three playgrounds in three different communities in Northwest Arkansas. Now that it is summer and all the homework is behind them, let’s encourage our children to get out and just plain play!
