Our Mission & Philosophy

Frederick Douglass famously stated that "it is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men." Douglass knew that if we invest our time, energy, and talents in our children, our world will be a better place. We share that philosophy, with a mission focused on helping parents, coaches, counselors and other volunteers help kids.

FOUNDED IN

2017

Our goal then as now: build an online marketplace where parents can find useful content on trends, developments, and activities that are good for kids, along with a directory of kids' clubs and camps providing those services.

CLUBS & CAMPS

3,722

Searchable by both location interest, our directory is home to nearly 4,000 clubs and camps. The camps are nationwide; the clubs mostly in DC, Virginia, and Maryland. Directory placement is free. We hope to be nationwide soon.

CLIENTS & CUSTOMERS

100+

We offer expert website design and development, marketing, promotion, and content services to kids' clubs and camps looking to step up their game a bit to meet the needs of today's more sophisticated and discerning parents.
