This research investigated the performances of children and adolescents with the properties of nearby forest and orchard in Malaysia. It measured the affordances of the natural settings including topography, water bodies, vegetation and animals as experienced by them. Their performances were observed by participating with them in a two-day hiking and camping program in both settings. Utilized affordances dominated the actions of the children and adolescents twice more than the combination of perceived and shaped affordances. The result suggested that the nearby forest and orchard are suitable playscapes for them to express their physical as well as socialization competences.
