A Field Trip to the Bears Playgrounds Factory produced fun and learning for kids. On Friday, February 10th the Bears Playground shop was filled with enthusiastic little children from Honeoye Falls Lima Primary School. Mrs. Williams and Mrs. Howlett’s first grade classes toured our office and work shop learning about different tools used to build our nature inspired Bears’ playgrounds.

“Nature-deficit disorder is not a medical condition; it is a description of the human costs of alienation from nature. This alienation damages children and shapes adults, families, and communities.

We believe in “nature” and we believe in “play”. We believe that the combination of the two are the cure for Nature Deficit Disorder. It is one of the inspirations for our mission. To make our nature inspired playgrounds, we use Natural Materials, like our beautiful, whole, round Northern White Cedar logs with all their natural features. Our Bold, Strong and Built to last architecture beautifies children’s spaces, while capturing a child’s imagination. Our nature inspired products and natural materials help stimulate a child’s enthusiasm for nature. In short, our products facilitate learning, create opportunities for exercise, help build social skills and help provide a unique connection to the great outdoors.
