Why We’re Here
Our Story: A Fateful Trip to Disneyland
Dadventures was born out of a series of conversations between our Co-Founders, Steve and Devon, around the struggles and pitfalls of being a dad, which led to discussing Steve’s fateful trip to Disneyland.
Focused on giving his daughters the best Disneyland experience possible, Steve meticulously researched every ride and polled his kids on which ones they were the most interested in. He even measured their heights just to make sure they’d be able to ride.
The result was an amazing family experience – riding 8 rides in less than 2 hours! Steve’s daughters were thrilled, and Steve was happy to have given his kids a great experience. But no one was happier than Steve’s wife, who got to enjoy a full day of parental success without having to do any of the planning.
Dadventures helps parents figure out what to do and the easiest ways to do it, so parents can focus on being present with their kids.
The Dad Gap
Today’s dads are way more active in their kids’ lives than in previous generations. They aspire to be better, more engaged parents than their fathers, but there aren’t many dad-specific resources to help them achieve that. There’s plenty of resources specifically for moms, but many dads feel like those don’t speak to them.
What We Do
Whether you’re looking for expert opinions, activities kids can do at home, or fun family recommendations in your city, Dadventures works to provide families with a digital resource that empowers dads, moms and kids to spend quality time together.
Dadventures takes the guess-work out of sifting through hundreds of links across social media and the web. We know parents have different needs from day to day, which is why our content is focused into 2 verticals: Dadventures at Home and Dadventures Out of Home.
Dadventures at Home
Dadventures at Home content is organized by age, length and type, and sorted by activities kids can do with families or alone, including those that don’t require a screen. We have three main resource categories that include:
Expert Support – Advice for parents on how to balance working from home, homeschooling their kids and keeping the household running smoothly. For example, content available includes information on the unexpected stages of being stuck at home and how to deal with quarantining. The platform is designed to encourage and empower dads to “lean in” more into childcare in a way that dads can relate to and find comfort in.
Family Play – As daily routines and freedoms change rapidly, kids and parents alike face new challenges that are creating significant stressors. The best way to support kids’ emotional health during this crisis is to play with them. Dadventures at Home provides fun activities that allow parents and kids to focus on being present with each other.
Solo Play – Parents and kids are spending significantly more time together than before the pandemic began. As a result, parents are overworked and increasingly stressed out. They need a break to maintain their well-being, and Dadventures curates fun, play-based activities kids can do on their own.
Dadventures Out of Home
Dadventures Out of Home curates activities for kids based on Location, Age, and Interests. Whether it’s Free activities that are happening this month, or our top picks for this weekend, Dadventures makes sure that we’re providing our members with the best opportunities for family fun in their area.
Dadventures Exclusive Events
In addition to our content and activity recommendations, Dadventures puts on original events, with discounts for Dadventures subscribers, giving members the chance to interact with each other and enjoy experiences that are truly awesome.
