The Game of Wild Craft Play was born in early 2008, launching two, week-long spring break programs in the Arrowsmith region. Thanks to support from Jim Powell and a government grant, Wild Craft Play, The Game, was born with a 110% success, and a craving to be, do and create more. The whole concept of child engaging play has grown since 2008 through direct study, constant feedback, and community collaboration. Jamie extends her gratitude for the community support that encouraged Wild Craft Play to become a school in 2017.
Within her programs, Jamie shares her skills from past experiences in competitive sailing and rock-climbing training programs to “Fun Facilitating” with youth-at-risk to “outside the box” youth and young adult programs. Jamie focuses on leadership, team building, and many types of self-awareness skills, using a unique facilitation technique she calls The Hummingbird Approach.

Statement from Jamie Black
I have used nature and play as a medium to inspire body, mind and soul awareness since 2004. Now SoLe Adventure is turning into my Behavior Intervention arm with youth with Autism. As Co-conspirator with Nature, I am building adventures that can positively impact the lives of all children.

It is a privilege and pleasure to be in service, regenerating resilience the way that Nature intended.
