Highlights of what you missed by not attending Rafe Kelley's Seminar

Fresh from yesterday's 7-hour seminar in Philadelphia with Evolve.Move.Play. founder, Rafe Kelley, we'll be hosting this 2 hour session in Hawthorne to share what we learned and entice you to join us at his next seminar

Not sure who Rafe Kelley is? Check out some of his videos:

• Return To The Source 

• TreeRunner

• The Universal Principles Of Play (Interview) 


If you are local to Hawthorne or coming from a different direction, you can skip this section. This is only for members coming from the south.

If you're coming from the south, take the Parkway North until you hit exit 156. Please only follow your GPS AFTER you take exit 156 on the Parkway.

After exit 156, follow your GPS to 289 Wagaraw Rd, Hawthorne, NJ. This puts you in the parking lot of J-B Pet Supplies. The jungle gym is directly across the street.

Now that you've got your orientation, you can either park at the pet supply store and walk across or pull into the parking lot for the park. I give you the pet supply store as a destination because the jungle gym is kind of "hidden" if you park in the park's lot.


Here is a picture of what the jungle gym looks like. That's where we'll meet.



Water: No water fountains in the area; bring a bottle.

Snack: Something to keep your energy levels up; a banana, some nuts or something along those lines. 

Clothes: Dress in comfortable gym attire. Make sure it's something you're willing to get dirty.

Jewelry: Leave it at home, especially rings, which tend to get snagged on things and cause nasty finger injuries.

Towel: Bring one to put down on the seat for the ride home. Between sweat and dirt, your car will thank you.

Sunscreen and/or brimmed hat: Highly recommend you wear it. Pre-mature aging is no fun!

Weather: It can be unpredictable and absolutely affects our outdoor workouts. PLEASE check this page and (if you are RSVPed) your email prior to leaving the house. If weather is too iffy to cancel early, we may cancel it up to 1 hour before it starts, so be alert!

Être fort pour être utile...."Be strong to be useful."

    Hi guys, I most likely can't make it on Sat. If you switch back to Sunday (Father's Day), I can make it.

    Okay guys, I saw the video link and he looks like a nimble monkey! I know (at my age) I can't be like that, but heck, I'm willing and interested in doing even 1% of that.
    Dave & Gary, Thanks for sharing your time and knowledge! Really appreciate it!
