About Us

What is ActivityHero?

ActivityHero is an online marketplace where you can shop for camps, after school classes, workshops, and kids' nights out. Compare schedules from different providers, read reviews from other families, and register online. It's easy!

Our Story

As moms, we know first hand how hard it used to be to plan kids’ camps and activities. We got tired of calling to check availability, filling out endless paper registration forms, and mailing checks! We decided that shopping for activities should be just as easy as shopping online for books, airline tickets, or shoes. And as Silicon Valley veterans — with experience at companies like Intuit, Disney, Billeo, and IP Locks — we knew what it would take to turn our idea into a working business.

In 2012, we launched, the first online marketplace to list thousands of camps, classes, workshops, and kids’ nights out. We focused on the San Francisco Bay Area at first, but soon expanded nationally. Today, families across the country are using the site to discover new activity providers, read reviews, check schedules, and register online.

We hope ActivityHero makes your planning easier, too. Welcome!
