Activate Canada

Activate Games

The Roots Project had a fun and exciting trip to Activate Canada, an interactive arcade with many games to enjoy. Activate was a perfect spot for the group to bond and enjoy each other's company. It had a wide variety of games to choose from, something for everyone in the group. From classic arcade games like pinball and air hockey to modern games that used LED puzzles that needed teamwork to solve.

Healthy Competition

As soon as the group arrived, they split up to explore the arcade and try out different games. Some key moments of the trip include:

  • The group gathered outside the arcade and began cheering to get themselves pumped and ready
  • A few members of the group reached a high score of 2000, which they cashed in for prizes.
  • The group had a group photo taken in front of the giant Activate sign
  • A friendly competition was held in the basketball game, and it was a close match between Adam and Badhasa

Quality Time With Friends

The trip to Activate brought the youth group closer together as they shared the excitement and fun of the games. They also had a chance to bond over friendly competition and teamwork. They all had a great time, laughing, and playing together. The trip was a reminder of how much fun they can have when they come together and spent time as a group.

In addition to the games, the arcade also had a snack bar, where the group took a break to grab some food and drinks. The youth enjoyed the burgers, pizzas, and other snacks and chit-chatted about their experiences in the arcade.

Overall, the trip was a great success and a memorable experience for the youth. It provided an opportunity for them to have fun and bond with each other, and they all left with big smiles on their faces, already planning the next trip.
