"Teamwork! Inclusivity! Strategy! Creativity! Imagination! It is amazing. The staff are the exact right mix of people to surround kids with enthusiasm, kindness and safety so they can be their crazy best. The themes change often and keep kids engaged and active. The characters the kids build grow and develop and with each storyline they start. While the kids create they get genuine encouragement to be themselves and are accepted by the staff for wherever they are that day."

Your program has helped to become another voice in fair play in the upbringing of our kids!
With three boys in our house, the opportunity to spar presents itself often. Anna & Eric insert infectious enthusiasm into the program. They have activated creativity not just in story, armor, weaponry & strategy, but also in learning moments providing participants with tools to resolve disputes. With their imaginative storyline, our boys immediately find a place to insert themselves with pride and purpose. They gain practice in respectful negotiations with both team-mates AND the team's 'enemy'. These skills make their way back to our home. The best part is that they don't even realize the adoption of these most-valuable underlying skills because they are having THAT MUCH FUN while doing it. We hope to take advantage of every session possible!

I can't say enough nice things about AIC. Brandon and Alec love, love, love it! Our basement has turned into a cardboard workshop. Brandon even approached the neighbor to ask for his refrigerator box. My only regret is that Brandon will age out this summer.
AIC is one of the best kid activities to come to Montana.

AIC has stretched my creativity. I can make anything. It releases all my ideas. I like to socialize and the counselors are funny and supportive.
The work you do really has a massive impact on my child. Thank you.

AiC provides a space for my son to be creative, confident, and figure out how to resolve conflicts. He can’t wait for this summer!
Adventures in Cardboard has been pivotal for our 9 year old. It has helped our child understand restraint, boundaries, and bodily respect, while also allowing the freedom to be fully immersed in imaginative play, remain active and engaged, and use critical thinking, design, and engineering skills in building some incredible cardboard creations. Eric and Anna, and their team are fantastic role models and playmates for these kiddos. We are so grateful for their well rounded approach to this program, and I can see the impact it's had on my child's confidence, and sense of self
