“Unstructured play is the foundation of curiosity, diversity, empathy, executive skills, self-regulation, negotiation, adaptation, problem solving and resilience.”
(American Academy of Pediatrics, 2018)

Ramshackle (adjective Ä ram·shack·le Ä ram-sha-kəl Ä) “poorly constructed or in a state of near collapse”.

Ramshackle Play is recreating the historical foundations and process of play which fosters independent, player-led learning. It grows positive social and environmental change, through exploration and discovery of play with materials typically seen as recycled or unusable.

Ramshackle Play is available for both education and community events. In educational environments, we provide students with a safe environment to utilize their classroom learnings in real-time. This experience meets curriculum objectives in numeracy, literacy, social-emotional learning, science, and physical education, leaving educators with weeks of content to build on and with.

At community events, Ramshackle Play creates a rich play environment that fosters connections across generations of individuals of all abilities. Players explore, risk, discover, fail, create, and develop physically, cognitively, socially/emotionally, and collectively. It provides the opportunity for risky play experiences that result in a resilient, responsible and ready demographic.

There is no minimum or maximum age of participation for Ramshackle Play. Our programming is inclusive, meaning individuals of all abilities are welcome to join us!
