Attracting More Children and Families to Trails

American Trails is the only national, nonprofit organization working on behalf of all trail interests. Through education, partnerships, and timely information resources, American Trails promotes and advocates for the creation, conservation and broad enjoyment of quality trails and greenways that offer places of solace, health, fitness, recreation, and transportation for all Americans. Since American Trails formation in 1988 they have been involved in everything from advocating for more funding for trails, training trails advocates, and providing technical assistance to increasing accessible trail opportunities for all ages and abilities.

Attracting More Children and Families to Trails

Through our parent company, PlayCore, GameTime has partnered with American Trails to encourage active lifestyles of families, children, and communities. Our PlayTrails products were specifically designed to infuse play along pathways networks, greenways, and trails to attract children and families. GameTime worked closely with an Advisory Committee from American Trails to develop their PlayTrails product line and educational resources. Pathways for Play, developed by PlayCore and the Natural Learning Initiative, a research and design assistance unit of the College of Design, North Carolina State University, provides best practice guidelines for planning play pockets that extend play value and promote physical activity, learning, and family fun along the way. 

GameTime is pleased to be a part of the American Trails Affinity program, to offer their members around the country the opportunity to share in our research, programming, and products.  GameTime offers special pricing on products to their membership and provides American Trails with 5% back to help them continue their mission of creating and protecting trails.
