Badlands is the largest nature-inspired play space in the mid-Atlantic, offering a unique, interactive

STEAM environment for children to explore and take risks. With an emphasis on mindfulness, the facility’s programming encourages children to be present in the space as they would be in nature and challenges them to create in the Workshop. Open Tuesday through Sunday from 9am-6pm, Badlands is a new space for families to spend the day, host birthday celebrations, enjoy delicious food options in our Café, and learn through playing in an environment designed for risk-taking.

At Badlands, we strive to provide our guests with a positive, playful, and educational experience. Our Instructors play the largest role in creating that experience for every individual. We are developing a high-energy team with significant room for growth and increased responsibility.
