Family Playtime in the Park, hosted by Dads on Saturday mornings

Calling all Dads!  Want to get out with the kids to meet other PAMP fathers (or give your partners a relaxing morning to themselves)?  We are launching a new playgroup this summer hosted by dads (moms welcome too!): PAMP Family Playtime.  It will take place in Mitchell Park on Saturdays at 10 am and is open to kids of all ages.  Come enjoy a morning out and allow the kids to burn off some energy!

RSVP is helpful but not needed - feel free to just drop on by. Look for our group at Mitchell Park by the smaller playground with the reddish fence near the East Meadow Drive entrance to the park (note this is on the opposite side of the park from where the Magical Bridge Playground is). Bring blankets for the babies, snacks, sunscreen, and any toys or sports equipment your kids will enjoy. Hope to see you there!

First playdate starts on July 2nd!
Hosting schedule:
July 2nd: Mauro
July 9th: Peter
July 16th: Jonathan
July 23rd: OPEN
July 30th: No playdate (PAMP Family Day)
Aug 6: Mauro
Aug 13: Peter
Aug 20: Jonathan


Current in-home playdates:

Looking for a comfortable, controlled environment for a playdate for your 0-14 month olds? That's why we started the "In-Home Playdates". Join in on the fun and sign up for one of the upcoming dates. Since these are hosted in homes and have a finite capacity, advanced signup is required. All playdates are free.
We are also looking for hosts, so we can continue to offer these unique events. It's super-easy to host - just open up your home for one playdate, to a few other PAMP members. It's a very low key, informal gathering, and a fantastic way to meet other parents with children of similar ages. This is one of the easiest ways to volunteer and give back to the PAMP community!
We organize these playdates by age - with "Blanket Babies" for 0-9 month olds, and "Crawlers" for children 9-14 months. Blanket Babies in-home playdates are currently on Mondays 3-5 pm and on Thursdays 1-3 pm. Crawlers in-home playdates, for mobile babies, are currently hosted on Wednesdays 4-5:30pm. 

If you are interested in hosting any of these playdates, please email


Current drop-in playdates:

Not able to plan that much in advance? No worries, we continue to have our hosted drop-in playdates at Parents Place each week as well. "Blanket Babies" is held on Fridays for the young ones, and "Toddler Time" is for your older children. No need to sign up in advance, just show up!

I would love to attend a crawlers playdate but I don't see it on the calendar! Is there a specific link to these events? Thanks!
