This year, the Kid’s Zone at Grovestock will be hosted by Rainbow Lightning, a grassroots, Denver-based nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a safe environment for youth and the community.
Their mission is to inspire and empower young minds to stay clear and substance-free while fostering holistic development through their guiding principles of sustainability, wellness, creativity, self-expression, community, growth, and love.
The Kid’s Zone offers a weekend filled with co-creative activities and interactive educational experiences, providing a wide range of artistic outlets without limitations. Rainbow Lightning is committed to minimizing their carbon footprint and powers the entire camp and workshops using a homemade solar-powered generator.
Some of the activities in the Kid’s Zone include sewing, costume making, tie-dying, and face painting (in preparation for daily parades), as well as workshops on primitive skills and permaculture to promote sustainable futures. There are also sessions on yoga, qi gong, movement, and play to keep our bodies limber and healthy. Additionally, there are daily open mics and talent showcases to create a musical flow and foster teamwork.
The goal of the Rainbow Lightning village is to provide a fun and educational experience for all attendees. They aim to impart valuable life skills and create lasting memories.
To support this offering at Grovestock, you can purchase the Rainbow Lightning Add-on along with your ticket, either online or at the gate.
