What is the Kids In Charge program?

The Kids In Charge is a 10-week program that is specifically designed to encourage kids to create, organize, and lead their play pods (teams). The program aims to bring back the joy of stress-free, kid-driven fun. Most importantly, we encourage kids to put away their screens, make new friends, and experience the thrill of playing outdoors.
