Who We Are:

We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym For All Kids is an inclusive, sensory indoor play space with specialized equipment and activities that address the developmental requirements of children with autism and other special needs while providing a fun and safe environment for ALL kids to learn, explore, build self-confidence, self-awareness and self-esteem, and to interact with their peers of all abilities and their community.

Whom We Serve:

We Rock the Spectrum – Brainerd Lakes, fondly known to our customer base of over 2300 clients of all ages simply as “the Kid’s Gym,” is the only sensory indoor playground of its kind in the state and unique as one of a small handful in the WRTS franchise that are located in the Midwest.  In addition to hosting young visitors from around the country who frequently come to spend time with grandparents or other relatives in the Brainerd Lakes Area (BLA), we are sought after by travelers with autistic children from as far as the Twin Cities, Duluth and beyond who make a point of putting us on their itineraries, and by resort guests, seasonal cabin-dwellers, and year-round residents around the BLA who need alternate forms of entertainment or a ROCKIN’ birthday party venue for their children of ALL abilities!

Our regular clientele hail from local and/or driving-distance communities that include Aitkin, Backus, Baxter, Becker, Bemidji, Bertha, Brainerd, Breezy Point, Browerville, Nisswa, Little Falls, Pillager, Crosby, Crosslake, Deerwood, East Gull Lake, Emily, Fort Ripley, Ironton, Lake Shore, Little Falls, Merrifield, Monticello, Motley, Onamia, Pequot Lakes, Pierz, Pine River, Rice, Saint Cloud, Sartell, Sauk Rapids, Staples, Wadena, Walker, and more.

What We Offer:

With its over 4000 square feet of uniquely designed, climate-controlled, handicap-accessible space, 360 sq.-ft. mirrored party-meeting-exercise room, audio-visual capabilities, its office, classroom, reception and fully-stocked gift shop areas, calming room, clean family restrooms and shower, break room, ample storage closets, and high-capacity colorful padded gym floor sporting loads of fun and therapeutic equipment and toys including a safe and spacious spring-free trampoline and 45-foot zipline with foam crash pit, not to mention our enormous photorealistic Gooseberry Falls rock climbing and traversal wall adding a true Minnesota feel, the opportunities for what the gym can give back to you and the Brainerd Lakes community are endless and limited only by the imagination and energy!

Our equipment is specifically designed to aid children with sensory processing disorders. However, in our experience, all children are able to benefit greatly from this equipment and by allowing children of all ability levels to play together they are able to learn a great deal from each other and become the best motivation for success on every level.

▪ The Zip Line helps build upper body strength, muscle endurance, self-confidence, and enhances the ability to integrate and tolerate movement.

▪ The Crash Pit at the end of the Zip Line is fun and inviting for all children and a perfect landing spot for children who crave the crash-and-burn input.

▪ The Trampoline builds lower body strength and helps to teach balance and develop vestibular and proprioceptive perception of movement in the body.

▪ Our Climbing and Traversal Rock Wall and other Climbing Structures enhance the body awareness and scheme, motor planning, bilateral coordination, and help children set and achieve goals.

▪ Our variety of Sensory Swings are fun, stimulating, calming, and offer various types of motion, tactile input, motor planning and motor sequencing activity.

We also provide:

▪ An Infant and Toddler Area with costumes, role play sets and kid-safe toys.

▪ An Arts and Crafts classroom with creative activities that help children develop fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.

▪ A Calming Room and Tunnels that offer non-threatening cozy hideouts.

▪ Break Time for parents of special needs children who need respite-like care.

▪ Private and non-private birthday parties and other hosted community functions that typically include time for children to interact and benefit

At We Rock the Spectrum we strive to serve as a vehicle for alternative care and early childhood behavioral development intervention.  Often a therapist for a child with special needs will attend the gym with the children in order to observe and provide their therapy while using the equipment in our gym. This allows kids the access they want to the amazing equipment while the therapist is able to take advantage of the support and availability of the staff and equipment which might not be present in other settings.
