In addition to staffing Eureka Villa with Playworkers focused on making the space as unadulterated as possible for the children at play, we ask visiting caregivers to follow our "Lightest Touch Policy".
This policy requires caregivers to continue to support their kids' play by mindfully "following their lead" by avoiding telling them how to play or inserting themselves into their play.
All players have only 2 rules:
1. Try not to hurt yourself
2. Try not to hurt any other living things at the site (including plants and animals).
We are open to all ages though we ask that players 4 years and younger stay under the purview of their caregivers. We also allow dogs (!) but do ask that the pet owner is responsible for their animal(s).
Because Eureka Villa is still a considerably "wild" space without electricity and water we recommend bringing the following to make your visit the best it can be:
>Closed Toed Shoes
>Dress for mess and the weather
>Water Bottles & Water
>Extra set of clothes
>Jacket/Coats for possible temperature shifts
>Any other items which help you feel comfortable in nature
