Grand Adventures

 

Let's play a story.

Grand Adventures is an innovative enrichment program that combines story and play by placing cooperative games and puzzles in the context of original and sophisticated stories. Why focus on story and play?

At Grand Adventures, we believe story and play are two of the most important mainstays of the childhood experience. Stories introduce children to new ideas, new roles, and new horizons. Play lets them explore those new concepts. Together, story and play are among the most powerful tools young people have to make sense of their world. Also, they’re just plain fun.
