Summertime Adventure and Learning

Gaming Camp 2015 - Three Different Weeks, Three Different Themes

This year marks Iocari's second summer camp offering, and we are excited by all the new things we are planning for the kids. As last year, we will be creating collaborative worlds of imagination that the campers will inhabit through tabletop role-playing games, with themes of fantasy, science-fiction, comic-book heroes, and mystery.

We will also be spending considerable time involved in outdoor skill-building activities that are designed to foster physical coordination, mental agility, and teamwork through cooperative play. We will be offering new athletic activities and hands-on projects connected with each week's theme.

Our goal is to tie in themes from the games the kids play with real-world skills and activities that reinforce the learning and the immersive experience.

Examples of such activities are:

  • Crafting safe foam-covered "boffer swords" and teaching appropriate sword play.
  • Medieval and science-fiction inspired field games.
  • Trail hiking, herbal lore, and tracking.
  • Crafting activities, such as: woodworking, leather working, costuming, and electronics.
  • Theater arts and improvisation activities.
  • Cooking.
  • Other fun activities chosen to match the week's theme.
