Your kids have been working hard all day; they deserve something extra fun when school is out! But what to do? How about she picks up some improv skills? Or, what about spending a little one-on-one time with Mother Nature? To get you inspired, we rounded up the most awesome after-school classes from coast to coast—flip through the album to see them all.

Run Up the Walls in Hawthorne, Ca

Stop getting mad at your kids for bouncing off the walls and take them to a place where that's exactly what they're supposed to do. Starting at age six, aspiring "freerunners" can learn the fundamentals of parkour, a sport loosely developed from French Special Forces training, which involves getting from one point to another by running, climbing and, yes, ricocheting off of any available surface. The sprawling Tempest gym looks like a real-life video game, with each corner acting as a different set—from Minecraft walls to ancient castles. And, with three giant trampolines, your kids will have plenty of places to run, jump, and bounce. Not convinced? One viewing of this super-cool video and your kids will be all in.
