The Funhouse Commons serves the urgent needs of young people and strengthens
community bonds by providing a safe and stimulating environment
where all can learn, discover, create, socialize, and be heard.
We are excited to start Playgroup back up on April 16th – outdoors on our playground!
Enjoy playing with friends while connecting with island families! Our building will not be open for play, but bathrooms will be available. Adults are required to wear masks, and we ask that children who are able to wear a mask do so to the best of their ability.
We can’t wait to see you!
Program Fee: $150
Spaces are limited and registration is required. Masks required and COVID safety protocols will be followed.

Stepping up is a new, outdoor-based exploration program at The Funhouse for students in grades K-8. The program will be held 100% outdoors at The Funhouse and around Eastsound, and will consist of walks and hikes, beach excursions and more!
Leadership skill development will be encouraged through games, activities, and discussions that focus on critical thinking and listening, social emotional development, and environmental and social justice issues.
Participants will be placed in small groups based on age-range, and the schedule will be dependent on interest and availability.
