Help Us Grow Our Playground


In the spring of 2017, Galapagos Rockford Charter School received support from KaBOOM! and the Dr Snapple Group to build a playground at our Lower Academy campus.  These two organizations donated $15,000 worth of equipment to Galapagos. Galapagos then raised another $30,000 from local foundations, businesses and individuals. With that support, Galapagos brought together a team of volunteers which included instructors, parents and community members. The result is a beautiful playground, that is enjoyed by children whenever the weather allows.

We would love to grow our playground by adding additional equipment in the summer.  If you would like help to continue to grow our playground please donate today.
