Expanding the Fleet! After six years in operation, we are thrilled to announce that we are preparing a new Adventure Bus to hit the road!! With improved design, the new Bus will feature more equipment and activities, enabling us to bring even more exciting programming directly to our clients.
Kids are becoming less and less active, sedentary behaviours are on the rise and screen time is increasing at an alarming rate. The average amount of time that Canadian children are now spending in front of screens is 7.48 hours per day! 95% of Canadian kids do not get enough physical activity to support a healthy lifestyle. This is simply unacceptable.
WHAT IS PHYSICAL LITERACY?
Physical Literacy is the mastering of fundamental movement skills and fundamental sport skills that permit an individual to read their environment and make appropriate decisions, allowing them to move confidently and with control in a wide range of physical activity situations. Physical Literacy is essential for optimal growth and healthy development of the whole person and it serves as a cornerstone for healthy, active lifestyles throughout the lifespan. Physical Literacy programs are an investment in children and future generations, just as disease prevention and the implementation of safety programs (i.e. seatbelts, bike helmets) function to save lives and improve quality of life.
WHAT IS THE ADVENTURE BUS?
Following our vision to inspire and motivate children to be and stay active for life, Adventure Bus was created to promote Physical Literacy & Active Living for all children, including those with Special Needs. We want to get kids excited about being active!!
The Adventure Bus is a full sized school bus that has been converted into a mini gym, brought directly to your location. The Bus is equipped with a large variety of FUN equipment including: zip line, monkey bars, rock climbing wall, mini-trampoline, rings, bean bags, ribbons, climbing rope, balance beam, mats, shapes, parachutes, tunnels, hoops and more. We provide Classes, School Field Trips, Birthday Parties & Special Event programming to Schools, Preschools, Special Needs and Early Education Programs, Communities, Charities, Private Sector Companies, and individual Families. All programs take place inside the Adventure Bus. No transportation of participants is involved. The Bus is equipped with a large variety of fun equipment to help strengthen both upper and lower body as well as improve balance and coordination. The bus is equipped to operate all year long with heating and air conditioning.
The completion of the new Bus will also expand our ability to give back to our community! We actively contribute to such causes as the Stollery Children’s Hospital, Dreamnight at the Zoo, Ronald McDonald House, Today Family Violence Help Centre, Community League Programs, Sports Programs and various other charitable organizations.
To express our deepest gratitude for your support, Adventure Bus has some exciting rewards for you! Our supporters will receive some fantastic "limited edition" perks that will only be available for the duration of this campaign.
