Outdoor Activities (Weather Permitting) 12:30-1:30 PM

Afternoons 1:30 – 4:30 PM

Afternoons build on the skills explored earlier in the day, and allow campers to focus more deeply on their choice of mechanics and specific areas of interest. Campers have the opportunity to sign up for an activity of their choice. Available options may include Magic: The Gathering, Role-Playing Games, and Board Games. Tournament-style play will be offered for any group that wants to engage at a deeper level.

Tabletop Role-Playing Games are narrative systems and encourage cooperation, decision-making, and creative thinking. Popular systems for campers include Dungeons and DragonsCypher SystemStar Wars Roleplaying Game, and various independent RPGs. Students choosing to play Dungeons and Dragons will have the opportunity to drop into the summer long campaign and replay their same character day-to-day.

Board Games Campers may select age-appropriate games from our massive board game library. Afternoon groups explore different strategic approaches for game success and continue to focus on good sportsmanship.

Magic: The Gathering focuses on promoting good-spirited tournament-style play, teaching the rules of Magic: The Gathering, and determining point values and rankings when appropriate.

Snacks:

We offer bagged snacks (Popcorn/Veggie Straws/Lays/Cheetos) in the morning and a home-baked sweet treat (usually a chocolate chip cookie) in the afternoon.
