Creativity is one of humankind's greatest gifts. It allows us to see beyond what IS and imagine what CAN BE...
- Jordan DeGree, Founder
Creative Adventure Lab
Creative Adventure Lab delivers play-based experiences that build creativity and empower the next generation of innovators, problem-solvers, and change-makers.
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.
