Like most 6-year olds, Jack O'Neil enjoyed playing with toys; unlike a typical 6-year-old, though, he played with his toys in the hospital. Jack was gearing up for corrective limb-lengthening surgery, a process that affected him long after his successful recovery. Once he was healthy, Jack wanted to make sure other hospital-bound kids had toys to play with. Jack began holding charitable lemonade stands, using the proceeds to buy toys. Over time, his pastime morphed into his current charity, Little Hands Make A Big Difference. Powered by fundraisers such as an annual 5K, the kid-run organization delivers Build-A-Bears and other toys to sick tots, fueling their play and filling their imaginations with geometric shapes. For more information, see the organization’s blog.

Volcano Falls Adventure Park's unlimited pass gives merriment-seekers a temporarily infinite supply of go-carting, laser tag, and miniature golf. The Lazer Zone allows young ones to grab light-shooting blasters and set out against their peers in futuristic battles or reenact the numerous laser skirmishes of Genghis Khan. A slick, bridge-laden go-cart track affords rubber-burners a six-minute spin around its lanes, and a kiddie track lets tykes join in on the zippy fun. Volcano Falls boasts two waterfall-flanked mini golf courses, including the 18-hole Palm course, which transplants putt-putt players to a tropical island setting surrounded by faux flora and fauna, as well as numerous marooned Tom Hanks wax figures.

E.nopi widens educational horizons by offering after-school enrichment programs in math and English/reading for kids age 4–14.

After an assessment, each child is given a skills-appropriate workbook with colorful pictures and accessible activities. The math program jumps off from either the basic or critical-thinking level to develop mathematical mastery in arithmetic and analysis, all the while boosting self-confidence and cultivating powers of concentration strong enough to bend a spoon with a differential equation. English/reading lessons take a four-pronged approach, focusing on listening, speaking, reading, and writing to improve vocabulary, critical thinking, comprehension, and forging report cards. Check the schedule for available tutoring times.
