The Play Unplugged summer activity program is returning to St. George, Cedar City, and Kanab! This program helps kids play by encouraging active lifestyles and promoting healthy activities. Play Unplugged not only works to help out our youth, but it also helps stimulate our local economy. Kids accomplish activities that are associated with badges– and those badges are sponsored by local businesses. The program also creates opportunities for youth to have rewards for interacting with other members of the community.


Play Unplugged began in 2013 in Heber City, Utah, when two fathers who were concerned about their kids’ screen time decided to create a model in which local businesses could receive an increase in foot traffic while simultaneously helping kids get out and play. Their efforts were rewarded with a successful program in their home town which has spread to fifteen other Utah cities, with some offering over 100 badges.
