Throughout Cactus Clubhouse, kids encounter several activity areas designed to spark independent play, while encouraging physical, cognitive and behavioral growth.

Cactus Clubhouse is made possible by grants from the USDA Forest Service and the Pharos Foundation in collaboration with Dimensions Educational Research Foundation.

Cactus Clubhouse is a Certified Nature Explore Classroom. For more information click here.
