Roleplaying Game Camp
Dates: July 23 - 27, July 30 - August 3
rising 6-10 grades
Do you like World of Warcraft, Star Wars: Old Republic, and other computer roleplaying games? This summer, leave the computer home and journey into the exciting world of tabletop roleplaying games like Dungeons & Dragons, where it all began!
No devices or wi-fi required! All you’ll need are imagination, creativity, and some pencils, paper, and dice. You and the other campers will create heroic characters who will explore fantastic worlds, solve challenging puzzles, and face great dangers – all in your imagination.
Teamwork, communication, and cooperation with the other campers in the group are essential – unlike computer games, the other players will be right there in the room with you! Can your group work together to succeed? Can you and your friends complete the quest, save the world, and maybe become legends yourselves in the game world? There’s only one way to find out.
Besides epic adventures, the camp day includes camp activities like archery or woodworking, and an optional swim period.
