We are super excited and slightly giddy to be announcing the next Playwork Campference. Ladies and Gentlemen, we will be working with Jill Wood of Adventure Play at The Parish School in Houston Texas, to host the second Playwork Campference on a well established adventure playground in the USA on 15th-18th February 2019.
Adventure Play was the setting for our risk study that we published a few weeks ago. It is a space that we have worked in before and a place which truly invites open-ended play.
If you are interested in finding out more about adventure playgrounds and talking about playwork in the company of like-minded people, then this is your conference. We will have camping as an option which will both reduce the costs of accommodation and increase the opportunities to connect with playful people. This is why we’ve called it a Playwork Campference (credit to Jeremiah Dockray of SCV Adventure Play Foundation for the name) and if you think that sounds awesome, you’re probably gonna want to more.
As you can probably tell, we are already passionate about this event. We know how important it is to feel like you are part of a community, to feel like you belong. This is one of our playful answers to this, in response to positive feedback from our last Campference in 2017.
If you can, please join us. We’re looking forward to meeting each and every one of you.
