Our Story

Our founder's vision was to provide high quality, wooden outdoor swing sets, manufactured in and by his community. He liked the idea of creating a product that would encourage more family time at home for others.

Paul Hersberger began his journey as a play structure building company in 1992. Out of a 1,920 square foot facility, he and his three-man team had a bold vision with this simple premise

Paul and his team knew that families deserve the best when it comes to play structures that will be shared with their children. Unreliable play structures built from low-quality timber have become too commonplace in the marketplace. Paul wanted to change things, and he saw his opportunity in local furniture retailers. Why not provide them with play structures for them to sell in addition to their furniture?

The result was our first line of high quality play structures.

In following with this dedication to only the highest grade play structure and assembly techniques, Paul’s team created each play structure by hand. This way our customers can be assured that all play structures they purchase are 100% guaranteed to be made in the Champ Craft fashion and commitment to excellent design.

Shipping is made easy by sending each play structure packaged with simple instructions that detail the setup process.

And because Champ Craft is always selling to avid customers looking to spend more family time at home, the turnaround from the time you purchase your very own set to when it arrives is less than two weeks.

Champ Craft is committed to quality in a way that only a family business can be. We are enthusiastic about turning high quality lumber into play sets for your home and family. Nothing makes us happier than knowing the work we’ve done as a family has benefited yours.

Today, the company is run by Paul and he has been transforming the quality and reliability of play for more than two decades.

It all started out as a dream project to help families create lasting memories at home. Today that dream has become a reality. Our products are made in a modern facility with 39,000 square feet of working space. Along with growth of the business has come progress in design and shipping.
