Great place to take the kids

This is an outstanding place to take your kids when it's too cold or wet to play outside. The playground in the mall? yuck no thanks! One of the staff at FotF told us they... read more

This is an outstanding place to take your kids when it's too cold or wet to play outside. The playground in the mall? yuck no thanks! One of the staff at FotF told us they make a point of wiping down the play area to prevent the spread of germs, so for us that's a BIG plus as well.

After moving to Colorado Springs a few months ago, I have been looking for things to do with our two youngest children while the older two are in school. Many friends recommended this place and so we finally went. The kids had a blast playing in Whit's End and getting snacks at the cafeteria. My mom and I enjoyed the... More

I am a local and love to bring my day care children here. We play at Witt's End, ride the slide and enjoy a healthy lunch. You can't miss this if you visit Colorado Springs.

We stopped in not knowing exactly what to expect. The people here are fantastic, friendly, lovable folks! Get the tour, see the operation, but spend some time just conversing.

Stop by and see what Focus has to offer, the price is right and the kids loved the giant slide. The bookstore is well stocked with a large variety of Christian materials.

I went into the place expecting a glorified Bible book store but the basement is a perfect place for young kids to come and release some energy.

We travel to Colorado every year, and every year we make a trip here. I just love the book store! We also love the cafe "Whits End" in the basement of the building. If you are an AIO fan, you will love this place!

The Focus on the Family Welcome Center is free, and kids love it. We go there as much as we can. The birthday rooms are free, but you need to reserve early. Staff are volunteers and always very friendly and helpful.

Fans of Focus on the Family, in general, and Adventures in Odyssey, in particular, will love this small, family-oriented visitors' center. There are lots of activities for children and a small grill. It can be a fun, and free place, to spend a morning or afternoon. Also, they have a very, very nice Christian gift and bookstore. There are limited... More

We were so excited to visit Focus on the Family, being partners of the ministry for over 10 years now. We were so happy to tour the facility and everyone we met was very nice. The time we spent at Whit's end Soda Shoppe was fun as well as the activities and the humongous slide! Learning about the beginning of... More
