Wild Craft Play Adventure Program Info
The Wild Craft Play Adventure Program was designed by Jamie Black to heighten the senses of children, and engage them fully in their environment. After 15 years as an outdoor guide, Jamie started offering a program that was very much like a video game. There were quests, cloaks, pouches, hand-crafted items, and a Travelling Trade Post that proved to be a great attraction to children ages 6 and up. This style of dramatic play has become a hit with the children who have experienced play with Jamie, and she plans to offer this at the Errington Hall on a weekly basis. Each day of the week has a different theme.
With a pedagogy of Guided Discovery and a knack for crafting wild play, leaders are focused on creating the most enhanced and engaging programs possible.
