Gymnastics, Dance, Music, Indoor Playground, Fit Zone, Child Care, Day Camp, Birthday Parties
A Unique Multi-Program Childrens Facility located near 25 Road and Patterson Road in Grand Junction, Colorado. We offer a world-class Gymnastics Program as well as high quality Child Care, Special Musical Learning Experiences and we can host Birthday Parties and Special Events at our indoor Fun Factory Playground.
This unique program originated in 1985 as Grand Junction Gymnastics Academy with a staff of 5 in a 5,000 square foot building and less than 90 students. Within the first year we grew to over 300 students. In June, 1987 we moved into a 12,000 square foot building and enrollment soon topped 500 members. Seeing the need for more professionally staffed quality youth activities, GJGA began to diversify adding other children’s fitness, recreational and educational programs. The addition of a dance studio, climbing gym, indoor soft playground and private party rooms in 1995-6 pushed us over the building’s capacity. In January, 1999, we designed and constructed a 31,500 square foot KidzPlex facility and now employ more than 70.
In 2002 KidzPlex was awarded “Excellence in Entreneurship” and award sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, the Small Business Development Center and Mesa State College Business Department. Grand Junction Gymnastics Academy has won individual and/or team State Gymnastics Championships every year since 1986. Co-founder Harlan Bensley was one of the first inductees into the Colorado Gymnastics Hall of Fame in 1997 for his lifetime contributions to the sport.
KidzPlex owners and board of directors are Christians and want to give glory to God for blessing us and all children with a facility and business such as this. It truly is a miracle that this facility was even constructed. There have been, and still are many roadblocks to this project. Every time we hit a dead end a miracle happens. This has only served to increase our faith and know God is in control. KidzPlex is the Lord’s and we are only stewards of it.
