Preschool and School-Age Programs

Twin Cities Adventure Play Preschool and School-Age Programs are committed to the principle of self-directed play that involves loose parts, natural elements, and artistic influence with an element of risk-taking. We serve communities based on the recognition that children and young people‚Äôs capacity for positive development will be enhanced if given access to the broadest range of environments and play opportunities. TCAP Playworkers are present during all of our preschool and school-age programming.



Backyard Camp!

Backyard Camp takes place in the awesome backyard of our Founder and Executive Director, Seniz Yargici Lennes in NE Minneapolis.

During this week-long, half-day camp, 3-10 year olds will lead their own play time; building, creating new worlds, and making up games using loose parts, our lovely tree house and all the surrounding nature. We’ll check on the garden, play in the sprinkler, and maybe take a rocket to space. We’ll come together for a healthy snack and close out with a group check-in/game.

*Kids will have access to tools! Hammers, nails, and even saws for those who are able.
All of this is always in a supervised and controlled area.



June 18-22 and June 25-29

Partnership Camps!

TCAP will partner with your organization to run week-long summer camps tailored to meet the needs of youth in your community.

We offer half and full day camps, which usually meet Monday-Friday 9-12 or 9-3pm

Campers will create, explore, and build friendships through intrinsically motivated, self-directed, unadulterated play.
