Engagement is in your Nature!

Children and Adults learn the Power of Engagement. Connect with Nature, Craft your Story, experiment and PLAY in and for this precious life that we have here on Earth.

Expand your imagination, do good things to take care of the Earth, and learn about the art of Fundraising.

Wild Craft Play ‘sCool is a private training platform that enlivens the senses, the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual, with the intention of helping people create a genuine connection with the Earth, in order to take care of it in a good way.

At Wild Craft Play we:

  • Gain Confidence in the WILDerness with survival scenarios and experiential training.
  • Develop your storytelling skills through Arts & CRAFTs, using many disciplines; art, photography, videography, and learning the old ways of hand-crafting.
  • We PLAY with as much imagination and creativity, outside the box thinking, cultivating diversity and acceptance. Join us in role-play scenarios, dramatic storytelling and much more.
  • ALL in one experience! Sound ‘sCOOL doesn’t it?


We cater to children, youth and adults.


Are you Drawn by Nature? What do you do outside?  This youth program is for teens between the ages of 11 and 17.  Youth in this group are invited to go beyond what you know and expand your capacity through self-guided adventures in activities like archery, sword play, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, skiing and more.

This video was produced by the youth in the photo. Their vision was to inspire you to get outside and connect with Nature.  Did it work?

Once a child plays Wild Craft Play, they can’t let it go. They continually come up to you and ask “what is the next adventure.” It is an on-going story-line crafted by the children, where an adult uses The Hummingbird Approach to gently guide them on their journey. Watch this young fella as he shares about his experience with Wild Craft Play – Age 7, and still remembers it fondly.

“I have come to understand that we, as a society and a Nation, need to connect to and become the advocates for the Natural World, while deepening our knowledge of self and the mysterious universe we inhabit. It is in this way that we WILL be the role-models for the future. Out of all of the needs of the Earth today, I choose to invest in our children.

Will you join me?” 

~ Founder Jamie Black ~

What if “climate change” is real? What if we really do need to make big changes right now?  If it hypothetically isn’t real, then spending time, money and effort doing something good for the Earth can only bring more good, regardless of whether or not there’s a crisis, don’t ya think?

Join the effort to help people learn how to connect children with nature through creative role-play outside.

Peace Making Principles
The Earth Charter

Peace Making Principles

Peace making principles are some of the core guiding principles in Wild Craft Play.

  1. We need peace in our hearts in order to play.
  2. When in conflict, don’t approach that person until you have peace in your heart. If that takes talking to someone else to cool your jets, or tell it to a tree, find a way to have peace in your heart before confronting someone else.  Then use your finest words to honor the other, THEN express your concerns/needs.
  3. Always search for a sense of unity or a feeling like you are both winning.

The only way you are permitted to play in life is to start with Peace in your heart. Follow this link for the Peacemaker Story…
