Band together, learn new skills, and save the day!

Get active and become a hero in our Live Action Role Playing Game! Campers will split into groups of 4 to 6 and go on missions which will all factor into a plot spanning the entire Summer! Missions will focus on everything from combat and strategy, to arts & crafts, negotiation, and even orienteering!

Epic Foam Sword Fighting With Our Child-Safe Foam Swords!

Before lunch, campers will jump into action with our Battle Game program. Wielding safe foam swords, campers will take part in cooperative and team-based competitive games including Capture the Flag, Jedi vs. Stormtroopers, Wizard Wars, and more!

Role-Playing games familiar and new, led by our master storytellers!

Your camper will take on the role of a main character in settings such as Marvel, Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Dungeons and Dragons! Role Playing games are a valuable exercise in problem solving, arithmetic, reading comprehension, and public speaking and just plain fun.

Curriculum

L.A.R.P. (Live Action Role Play)

In LARPs, or Live Action Role Playing Game. In a LARP, players use their imaginations to play a character who interacts with a fantasy world. Our LARP involves working in small teams, completing missions with elements of movement, play-acting, and swordplay.

Battle Games

Battle games are short, active games that usually last 5 to 10 minutes per round. Typically played on teams, battle games are a great source of exercise, as well as a fun way to practice teamwork and strategy. We play swashbuckling-inspired takes on classics such as Capture the Flag and Werewolf, as well as completely original games like Jedi vs. Stormtroopers and Wizard Wars!

Dungeons & Dragons

Using pen, paper, dice, and the imagination, your camper will take on the role of a main character in settings such as Marvel, Star Wars, Harry Potter, and more!

Role playing games help children develop confidence, public speaking skills, problem-solving, literacy, planning, empathy, and creativity. Your kids will be encouraged to develop new social tools by engaging other kids in a safe environment with a common goal. They will engage a wide variety of approaches to a limitless range of situations and process the outcome in a judgment-free space!
