Nature. Adventure. Play.
Nature - Since 1996, we have been working to help kids connect with the natural environment through play! So many of us grew up playing freely in nature, but kids today have few of those same opportunities. We invite nature back into the play yard, creating places of learning and playful discovery. Through our work we have helped dozens of schools and communities transform boring play yards into rich Natural Playscapes!
Adventure - We are helping to bring healthy risk and adventure back into the lives of children! Adventure playgrounds are places where kids can freely experiment and create with loose materials. They are places for kids to get messy, get creative, and take risks! They are places created and re-created by the playful work or children. With the support and oversight of playworkers like us.
Play - All our work is guided by play. Play is absolutely crucial for healthy development of the children’s brains, bodies, and spirits. So many kids today are deprived of the basic right to play, as academic and social pressures displace unstructured free time. Kids need to mess around, to experiment, to imagine, and to take some risks! It is our mission to help create beautiful environments that support children’s right to play outside.
