Creativity is a core component of the human experience. Throughout time, our ability to think creatively has driven innovation, led to social and economic growth, and improved quality of life. Put simply, creativity has moved us forward.
Today, creativity continues to be our best tool for solving problems and fostering new opportunity. Despite its importance, though, creativity continues to be viewed as something that happens by accident, with few deliberate efforts to increase creative capacity among people and communities.
Creative Adventure Lab exists to foster creativity. Everything we do is deliberately designed to help people of all ages become more creative.

Great place for the kids to be creative and try new things. Gives great understanding on the way things work. The climbing wall is one of our favs. The staff is kind, caring and patient.
I have experienced Creative Adventure Lab both as a class participant and as a parent taking my child to play in the lab. Back when it was known as Matter Creative, I attended a painting class, pottery painting, and a few stained glass workshops. While I do not fancy myself an artist, I still had a great time and learned new skills. Now that our son is a little older, we have a family membership and stop in to let him play. He loves the giant blue blocks and the light peg wall. While he is a little small for the rock climbing wall, he still loves running around on the cushy floor in the rock climbing area. It's a great play to go and just be creative in whatever way makes sense to you!
