Managing Stress Through the Power of Play


Remembering Recess™ Playshops are designed to accommodate all physical abilities for adult learners in groups of 20 to 100.

We can provide impactful Playshops for you, ranging from a 90-minute experience to an unforgettable two-day event and many possibilities in between.

We look forward to hearing what your needs are and then creating a one of a kind adventure to wellness for you through the power of play.

Thank you for considering our unique offering.


Sometimes there's just too much to consider ... too many things to unpack or repair before we can go out and play.

Sometimes, the best use of our will is to drop it all and just walk out from under the problems we have to solve, even if for an hour or so ... they will be there when we get back, and maybe some will fall apart without our worry to hold them up.
