KaBOOM!’s Summer Playground Challenge

Naturally, we don’t want kids sitting around inside all summer—we want them at the playground! So this summer we’re challenging parents to take their kids to as many playgrounds as they can.

As parents map each playground using our Tag! mobile app, they are entered to win gift cards and other great prizes. They also earn points and badges toward one of three Grand Prizes: a week-long trip for two to Washington, DC.

Challengers are not only motivated to get outside with their families and play this summer, but they are also contributing to a great cause. By mapping playgrounds across the country, they will help us determine where playgrounds need to be built.
