About Play in the Wild?

Play in the Wild! evolved out of the passions for wilderness adventure and living nonviolence that both Catherine Cadden and Melanie Whitham share. Catherine founded the TEMBA School, a K-8 alternative school in California based on the tenets of nonviolence, in 1996 and had been leading backpack adventures for youth since 1990. Melanie founded the P.E.A.C.E. School, an elementary school based on holistic principles of education, in 2002 and had been leading canoe adventures for youth in Quebec, Canada since 1999.”
