Columbia Play Project’s fundraising goal for GiveMore24 2022 is $20,000 and has been awarded a $10,000 match from the Leslie B. Durst Fund.  All funds raised will be used to support exploratory play activities in Clark County, WA. Donations can be made via https://www.givemore24.org/organizations/columbiaplayproject.

Columbia Play Project is an intentionally planned project designed to expand exploratory play options to children and families throughout our communities.  Exploratory play grows healthy children and vibrant communities.  The Columbia Play Project exists to be a hub where all families can safely engage, connect, explore and ignite their imaginations. 

Columbia Play Project has been working towards completion of its three-phase plan to create exploratory play activities focused on the themes of People & Culture, the Natural World, and Engineering and Arts.  Phase I, a themed play kits to be used at-home launched in December 2021.  Phase II, a mobile museum with removeable exhibits that can be set-up outdoors for socially distanced play, launched in September 2022.  Phase III is a full-scale bricks and mortar exploratory play space with indoor and outdoor play areas and permanent and rotating exhibits. The CPP Board of Directors expects the museum to open in 2026.
