Play Unplugged is all about encouraging kids to put down their electronics and get out and play. This is done by creating a symbiotic relationship between kids, parents and the local community. This relationship creates an incentive for all to participate as one motivates the other.
[Play Unplugged] was a big success. We received lots of positive feedback from parents, businesses, and the kids. People were excited to have a pre-made plan of activities to get their kids out of the house, off the XBOX and out doing something positive...
Play Unplugged was a phenomenal program that brought local law enforcement and our local youth together in such a way that a bond has been forged for life.
We couldn’t have paid for advertising the Pioneer Museum with the same outcome your Play Unplugged program has done. During May of this year we had 100 visitors. But June saw almost 500!

What an amazing summer. Our visitor’s center has become a ‘community center,’ locals have familiarized themselves with activities, events and local businesses around the valley that were unknown or not thought of.
