BRIEF HISTORY

Creative Adventure Lab was founded by Jordan DeGree in 2008, in Dubuque, IA.

 

As a teacher, Jordan saw firsthand how creative energy could spark positive change in students. He envisioned an organization that could use creativity to help build a better, stronger community.

 

Many years later, Creative Adventure Lab continues to develop new and exciting ways to ignite the creative spark in both kids and adults.
