At Crooked River Kids we believe that allowing children rough and tumble outdoor play and exploration are essential parts of childhood. When we give children the time and space to play we
are giving them the opportunity to practice vital skills such as cooperation, curiosity, and problem solving. Not only are these the building blocks for a happy healthy childhood they are
the foundation for building a more resilient, connected and innovative future. We are a small part of growing number of community organizations, academic institutions, and play initiatives
that are advocating for a more connected world through play.
Our vision is to create a more vibrant, connected world where all children have access to nature and the freedom to
play. We're based out of Greater Cleveland, Ohio and you can find us along the trails,
beaches, parks, community gardens and anywhere there's a muddy puddle, climbing tree or rock to overturn.
