Since 2010, we’ve had the pleasure of being a part of the US Playwork and Adventure Play scene and helping it to grow. New projects have opened coast-to-coast in North America, and around the world, led by passionate and dedicated people we are proud to consider colleagues and friends.
At the same time, we know firsthand the struggles in starting projects and in keeping them going.
This coming February, we’re offering a totally unique Pre-Campference Leadership Intensive that is designed specifically to support Project Leaders on those issues and any others they face. It will be an event that's happening in addition to the Playwork Campference 2019 (and will start 24 hours before the Campference itself) and there are only a limited number of spots available. We’ll talk about:
- finding the right adventure play/playwork model for your community
- outreach and marketing
- finding (and keeping!) great staff
- partnering with other organizations
- financial sustainability
And last but not least, personal sustainability!
We’ll also spend time talking about the movement as a whole, sharing ideas and strategizing about how we can best support one another in pushing this work forward to larger audiences, while still retaining what makes this approach so unique.
Participants can be anywhere in the process of Project Leadership, but we are prioritizing applicants who are already underway (at least one or two pop-up adventure playgrounds in).
If you’ve ever felt “all this rests on me” - come on down!
We don't have all the answers, but we have dialogue, experience and chocolate.
