Teen Zone - Outside of these projects and "talk-back" sessions, the Teen Zone includes supervised gaming areas that provide teens with a carefree environment where they can just be kids. By using structured activities like science or Spanish projects and free-time gaming through Ping-Pong or XBOX Kinect, the Leaders in the Teen Zone seek to teach the whole person as they build relationships that will give teens the opportunity to get plugged in and feel they belong.
Kid Zone I - Drop-in child watch area that is professionally staffed for children 6 months to 6 years old. The child watch area will provide up to 2 hours of care in a safe, fun place while parents take a class, workout or attend a meeting at the Kroc Center. Parents must remain in the Kroc Center while children are in the Kid Zone.
Kid Zone II - The Kroc Center strictly enforces that any child under the age of 11 years old must be accompanied by an adult at all times in the center.

Each session is a maximum of 2-hours. Adult must remain on-site. Monthly passes are available.
