Who wants to go on an adventure?
The online summer gaming camp will allow you the opportunity to become a hero in a one of a kind collaborative story via tabletop role playing game (RPG). RPGs are often used in the computer and video game market. With a table top format you are allowed more creative freedom in the who, what, where, and when of your adventure. Not only will you have the chance to explore worlds inspired by Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, you will learn important day to day skills such as communication, team work, critical thinking and creative problem solving.
A large portion of our day will be spent in collaborative storytelling, creating and sharing worlds of fantasy and fiction. Each student is an integral part of a smaller group of up to 6 players led by a trained Game Master where they will work together to solve mysteries, save the galaxy, and find treasures beyond imagining. Each player will create their own unique character that will have specific skill sets which in turn, influence the plot of each story line. Of course each game is guided by a set of basic rules overseen by the Game Master, but otherwise the sky’s the limit when it comes to the diversity of your character and story line.
