ONEIDA — One of Oneida’s newest family play centers, Wild Child, located at 703 Stone St., recently hosted an evening event just for the local Oneida Kids Club.

Pamela Brewer, the owner of Wild Child, had been hearing of all the wonderful community service projects that Kids Club has been conducting for the local community through the papers, as well as other parents and businesses. Amazed at the hard work and dedication these children were showing to help in their local neighborhoods, schools, parks and businesses, Brewer opened the doors for Kids Club to enjoy a free evening of “finding their inner monkey” at Wild Child.

Nearly 40 Kids Club members and several parents attended the indoor play center. Amazed by their creative discounted software online, innovative, and immaculate space, Katrina Blanchard, parent of two members, commented, “We need more places like this in our area. Not only do we need to offer kids a world of imagination, away from the television and video games, but show them that contributing to our society has benefits for everyone. For local business owners to open the door to these children and thank them in such a special way for their hard work keeps encouraging them to continue their efforts — which will certainly benefit our entire community.”

The Oneida Kid’s Club has more than 50 active members from Oneida and neighboring towns and school districts. Projects are booked throughout the year that benefit local businesses, schools, parks, conservation and charity organizations.

Wild Child offers an indoor playground, rock climbing walls, and different play areas consisting of toys/games for a variety of ages. It hosts open public hours, as well as private parties.
