Kids aged 3 through 14 explore their creativity in the Create and Bounce camp, which helps them burn off both physical and mental energy with an array of arts activities and hours of nonstop bouncing. With the summer passport, endless bouncing is at children’s fingertips, as they receive access to any open-bounce session throughout the summer.<p>
BounceU Hartford, CT
Inflated structures, slides, and games fill the climate-controlled environs of the numerous BounceU locations that speckle the nation. At each site, staff members closely monitor all activities as little ones traverse obstacle courses or pull on oversized inflatable boxing gloves. The crew also invites parents to join in on the fun, letting them bounce alongside their kids or make sweeping edicts from atop a bouncy-castle throne.
In addition to open sessions, the indoor-play haven sets the stage for Preschool Play Dates. Special events include Create and Bounce, which lets kids bounce and paint the day away so their parents can do grownup things, such as eat marshmallows with a knife and fork.
