Host Your Own Wild Craft Play Game
Wild Craft PlayTM is a popular game played by children who are willing to be outside.
Parents, teachers and program leaders say that the art of bringing video-game concepts into real-life in the forest is brilliant. The fact that children are very engaged when playing outside is a bonus, and the fact that it is a model to enhance curriculum learning is amazing.
If you run Outdoor Programs, Camps, or Special Events, this game is effective at getting your children engaged, learning by doing, and having fun with a purpose.
Watch this honest interview to hear why Wild Craft PlayTM is so much fun.
“I can’t believe you created this, it’s the best of all three worlds! Playing in nature, being with friends AND it feels like a videogame in Real-Life!”

This concept is a model designed to be used in any group context to enhance the level of engagement of children. Adults are required to learn how to facilitate the game using provided props, quests and resources. It has been run as summer camps, weekly outdoor programs, after school programs, and can even be offered as an epic 1-day family adventure.
In order to run this you need;
– Basic first aid
– A willingness to work with children outside
– Access to a field and forested area
– Access to a bathroom
– At least 8 children
– At least 2 hours each time you gather
Most adults with some experience of running outdoor activities will be confident they can teach all the tasks included in the game.
Some of the aspects of Wild Craft Play™ will be familiar to children who have played video-games. Whether you have experience with videogames or not, these strategy-based role-play scenarios can be learned quickly and easily. Partner videogame theories with Nature, quests and storytelling and you will develop skills without even realizing due to the true nature of engagement.
