ChildCareGroup hosts two great fundraising events each year. Learn more below:
The Great Adventure Hunt
The Great Adventure Hunt is a fun and clever puzzle hunt held in late January. Teams of six players (who we call Hunters) visit different sites throughout the venue to solve puzzles, games and riddles. Judges tally the scores, and teams who solve the most puzzles in the shortest amount of time receive special prizes and bragging rights!
The puzzles at the Great Adventure Hunt utilize the skills that relate to the four major domains of early learning: language and literacy skills, cognitive/early STEM skills, fine and gross motor skills and social-emotional skills. Children learn through play, and at the Great Adventure Hunt, our Hunters support us through play! The Great Adventure Hunt is our largest fundraiser, and donations, sponsorships and volunteer support for the Hunt are vital for our mission.
The Great Big JAM
The Great Big JAM is a fun, annual fall event for children, parents and grandparents that promotes family literacy and encourages children to engage in philanthropy.
The JAM features classic fairy tales read by Celebrity Readers from area schools in our Storybook rooms, Geppetto’s Theater performances, crafts, balloon artists, face painters, inflatables, a breakfast buffet and more! Kids are encouraged to wear their favorite pajamas and will engage in philanthropy by stuffing backpacks with schools supplies for the children we serve in our education centers.
