Our Afterschool Program

Our Afterschool Program features a thoughtful curriculum that teaches students how to apply skills from playing games to the outside world.

In addition to being loads of fun, our classes focus on the following concepts:

  • Confidence and public speaking
  • Conflict resolution and decision-making
  • Emotional and social growth
  • Environmental sustainability
  • Mathematics and logic
  • Self-sufficiency and community-sufficiency
  • Strategy, negotiation, and planning

Workshop Curriculum

Workshop sessions are held every day, from 4pm to 6pm EST, and some workshops take place from 5:15pm to 7:15pm EST.

Our three main subjects are Pokémon, Dungeons & Dragons, and Minecraft.
