Zombie Summer Camp

At this camp, campers create their own character in an ongoing storyline that never repeats. They choose special skills and their favorite NERF Blaster (provided or bring your own!). Then they decide what to do next when opportunity (or trouble) arises.

Our heroes stand shoulder to shoulder with their fellow Defenders as they fight gruesome zombies, solve scientific mysteries, protect the fragile land, and forage for supplies. Each summer, the story line is based on either a literary piece (IE: George Orwell’s 1984) or a historical event (The Bubonic Plague) and involves education in science, creative problem solving, teamwork, and more.

At this camp, heroes learn:

Tactical training

Campers learn how to use their Nerf Blasters and incorporate team tactics so that their group can withstand the hordes of monsters and undead that plague the camp.

Unlocking the story

Each summer, the story is based on a classic novel. Clues in these books are important keys to solving mysteries, discovering treasure, and restoring peace to the land.

Scientific method

Campers learn how to formulate hypotheses and conduct experiments. They use their findings to develop a cure for the Zombie epidemic.

Riddle solving

The Team Leaders will help Adventurers learn about the history of the encampment and why it is haunted by zombies.

Warriors & Wizards Summer Camp

This camp has a similar concept as the Zombie summer camp, but, but with a medieval setting. Heroes play wizards, warriors, or healers and spend the summer battling or negotiating with characters out of literature, history, or mythology.

They fight fierce monsters, uncover ancient mysteries, decipher scrolls (while learning Latin), make potions (while learning actual chemistry) and practice valuable skills in this dynamic learning adventure where stories are used to teach.

At this camp, heroes learn:

Tactical training

Your hero will learn how to use their foam swords and special skills while incorporating team tactics so that their group can withstand the hordes of monsters that plague the land.

STEM learning

Campers work together in their ongoing quest to “power up” by learning STEM. Once they prove their knowledge by teaching it to their friends, they gain skills and special powers for the battle.

Scientific method

Campers learn how to formulate hypotheses and conduct experiments to test their ideas. They use their research and findings to solve the mystery of what happened.

Discovering cultures

Each summer, the story is based on a different world culture’s myths and legends. Heroes learn about monsters and characters from around the real world and throughout history.

“After his first day at Wizards & Warrior camp my son said, “Mom, that was the best day of my entire life.” What a great experience! Nate and Eliza will definitely be back. We appreciate the energy, creativity and passion that all of you pour forth into creating a truly memorable experience. I’m not sure who’s sadder that it’s over — me or them!”
