This week, I am at my first KaBOOM! staff retreat, otherwise known as Play Academy.  For those unfamiliar with KaBOOM!, let me provide some context…

You may not realize it, but there is a play deficit in America and that deficit is harming our children. KaBOOM! is focused on saving play by ensuring there is a great place to play within walking distance of every child.  We do this by mapping playspaces and play deserts, building playgrounds and advocating for increased opportunities for play.  As you can imagine, an organization with such a mission is a pretty unique place to work and Play Academy has been an awesome experience so far!
