Welcome! We are so glad you’re here!

Overwhelm is real. We understand how hard it can be to do all the things, and still try and find easy, fun local activities that the whole family can enjoy.

If you are a Military Family you can also add the PCS and Deployment fun to the mix. We understand! MyActiveChild was dreamt up and created in Hampton Roads by a military spouse and mom of 2 active children.

MyActiveChild was born of the frustration of moving to a new place (Hampton Roads) and not knowing what was available for local families with young children.

Whether you’re new to the area, new to being a parent/caregiver, or just want to check out this weekend’s activity calendar, you are in the right place!

What is there to do this weekend in Hampton Roads?
