Mountain Jam is a fantastic place for some family fun and offers a tremendous amount of activities and attractions for young Jammers throughout the weekend!
Children aged 10 and under are admitted FREE if accompanied by a ticket-holding adult. However, due to security concerns, we cannot admit more than 2 children under 10 years old per supervising adult (4 children per family). You may be asked to present proof of age (such as a birth certificate) if your child appears older than 10.
Here’s a list of some of the awesomely fun activities we’ll have for the kiddo’s at Mountain Jam 2016!
Activities and Attractions for Kids:
Yogarama with the Bari Koral Family Band
Yoga with a dancing bear? A giant roller coaster of kid yogis? Welcome to Yogarama! Together, we’ll take a trip to the moon, learn yoga with a gingerbread man, pop like popcorn, hang upside down like bats, fly like butterflies and much more in this interactive concert experience. Kids and families will rock out with a full band, hand drawn multi media, Hulu hoop artists and more. Hosted by award winning kids/family recording artist Bari Koral. Inspired by the Yoga Garden at the White House Lawn! Bring your dancing shoes, your yoga mats or use one provided.
Ratboy Jr. is back! In fact, this is their 8th year playing music at Mountain Jam for the whole family to get down to. Friends, this is truly “EVERYONE” music. Marco Benevento’s daughter Ruby says “Without Ratboy Jr. there’d be no music better than my dad’s!” They have opened for Levon Helm and have played at such festivals as Top of the Park (MI), The Green River Festival (MA), The LEAF Festival (NC), Clearwater Festival (NY), Strange Creek (NY), and many more. Ratboy Jr. are an award winning rocking duo for all ages, a band for the whole fam, if you will. Their latest album is called “Hamster Pants” and it has been getting lots of buzz including winning a Parents Choice Recommended award. Parents Choice says, “Hamster Pants is the kind of album you’ll want on the days when the world stops making sense, and your family needs a little absurdity to get through the day.” Kids Corner/WXPN says, “Hamster Pants is rocking silly fun that solidifies the band’s place among the best kindie songwriters today.” Ratboy Jr’s live shows are energetic, engaging, and just plain fun. “The two-man rock band performs its catchy (and often improvised) tunes with a side of onstage banter to break up the music,” says Time Out NY. The big question that will be asked this year is who had more fun at Ratboy Jr’s show? The little kids or the big kids who drove them to Mountain Jam? The answer? Both!
Cozy Kids Corner
A shady wooded lot reserved for children and their parents where imaginations come alive! With low hanging hammocks, tipis, some crafts and cozy corners that kids of all ages make their own. The area has prime hillside seating that allows full view to both stages so custodians won’t miss a beat. The Cozy Kids Corner will have it’s own potty. Fun for all ages! *Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Wormtown Tent / Child Registration
Face painting, arts & crafts, workshops, team games and fun, fun, fun! Please register your child at the Wormtown Kids Tent with your information should they get lost during the weekend. The Kids Tent will be open each day from Friday and Saturday from 10am-8pm and Sunday from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Remember, this area is not a babysitting service, so please do not leave your children unattended!
Imagine a world where heroes and villains are in a never ending battle between good and evil, where the laughter of faeries is echoed by the roar of dragons, where powers exist that can raise the dead, heal the wounded and enchant the living. Now, imagine yourself within this world…A hero of Legend! The success of your quest depends on you alone. The Wayfinders Experience combines the energy of a sports camp with the creativity of an arts program and the strength of a safe and supportive community. This activity is open to all ages and will meet in the Lower Kid’s Village, Friday 12PM and 5PM. Saturday 12PM, 2PM and 5PM. Sunday 12PM and 5PM.
Ethel Slutzky Foundation Arts & Crafts
Hunter-Tannersville Central School will bring their vivacious talented squad of young artists. Ethel Slutzky heads up and oversees activities in the Cozy Kids Corner and Village. Activities and Arts and Crafts include Facepainting, Tabularasa, Tipi decoration, and more!
The Homespun Merry Go Round
Since it’s creation, Al has been making his Merry-Go-Round available for a wide variety of events. The main vertical assembly is actually the rear axle of a 1968 Dodge Dart fitted with a washing machine motor and other reclaimed mechanical power transmission components. The Homespun Merry-Go-Round even has an infant seat so the smallest riders can take a spin. Turning at a gentle 4 rpm, it can carry 2 passengers up to 250 lbs.each. Other recycled parts have made their way into Mr.Gori’s creation. The animated snake and monkey are driven by windshield wiper motors. The base is from a large file cabinet. He calls his craft of finding new and fun uses for old junk “Savage Salvage”: the art of getting something for nothing.
