Educational Value

Recess Cleveland now organizes over 105 games. Each day at our camp or OST program, scholars practice a game that is old (kickball, dodgeball, etc), new (bounce house dodgeball, switchball, etc), and are challenged to create their own game using a pile of random play equipment (frisbees, skip its, bases, etc). The games we teach encourage and reinfoce the principles you learn playing organized sports: 1. Competition · 2. Good Sportsmanship · 3. Teamwork · 4. Resilience · 5. Courage · 6. Hard Work. Scholars are then challenged to create rules to a game from scratch using a pile of random play items. The games they create must reflect our organizations 3 core principles: 1. Equity · 2. Inclusion · 3. Collaboration. Scholars also must demonstrate the game to their peers and receive constructive feedback. Games that check all the boxes of our core principles are sometimes added to our play library. Three hours of each day at our camp are reserved for play using the something new, something old, and something created curriculum described above. Other activites at camp will include zumba, yoga, art instruction, esports, coding class, journaling, and additional programming from our community partners. Our flagship program, Restore Recess, also focuses on building pop up parks in play deserts or neighborhoods lacking safe spaces to play. We bring bounce houses, inflatables, food, music, and when we have enough attendees we organizes games of kickball, dodgeball, and other play activities. Most of our pop-up play events are 100% free to attend thanks to grants and our generous partners.
