We're never as happy as we are when we see friends and neighbors come together to build their very own playground, and the folks at the Madison Country Day School in Waunakee were a treat to work with!
The school selected Gerber Leisure Products for their new project, so we developed and provided multiple design options for structures. Additional designs were provided for all budgets, and the school got to work raising funds for the project.
With dreams of a new play structure and sports court for their students, the members of the Madison Country Day School got creative in their mission, going as far as creating a video to highlight the needs of students of various ages, involving those students in the project!
After fundraising was complete, the option for a Community Build was a clear and simple choice, as it allowed for the addition of a sandbox and Oodle Swing to their new play space!
Plans and dreams became reality as we welcomed the heatwave here in Wisconsin, when volunteers gathered to bring a natural-themed playground to life for the students during summer vacation. A break from the summer sun was offered inside the air-conditioned school, where snacks and refreshments were plenty. The generosity and excitement radiated from volunteers and school administration staff alike.
Featuring Recycled Tree House Roof tops, a Thunderhead™ Climber, Summit Climber™, Oodle® Swing and more, volunteers pushed through the heat (and countless water bottles) to carefully assemble the components to create a safe, fun, continuous play space. The pride in the build was felt through the day, and we were honored to be a part of it!
We're looking forward to seeing the excitement on students' faces as they return in the fall with a new and exciting space to play, learn, and explore!
