OUR GOAL IS TO
EMPOWER YOUTH THROUGH PLAY
active8 is a seasonal subscription play program designed for youth by experts in leadership and recreation.
Every box includes a set of game cards, challenges and sports equipment that is designed and curated specifically for every season.
Each active8 box will:
Help you plan fun and meaningful activities for your students or youth group with little time needed
Allow you to discover fun games and activities developed and selected by experts in play to promote inclusion among kids
Include daily challenges to keep youth busy and active
Get youth interacting and being social, while maintaining social distancing
Reduce screen time
Help kids stay active
Build leadership & collaboration
Let kids be creative
JUST LET KIDS FIGURE IT OUT
We all want to imagine that our children will grow up to be wise and kind adults. To do this, it is so important to empower them and give them the opportunity to learn from their mistakes.
WINNING AND LOSING FOR KIDS
Winning and losing can be great opportunities for teaching youth how to be both gracious and resilient. This can serve them well in the future as they grow and learn.

40+ day challenge calendar with new exciting socially distancing activities
