Have you ever seen a group of kids or teens playing a video game together? They live the experience intensely and talk about it with passion long after the game is turned off. Games and stories create immersion and inspire engagement. Have you ever wanted to tap into the game industry as a way to attract and retain more campers, students, or participants? We did… so we created programs to do just that.
Our own programs, Wizards & Warriors and Zombie STEM Summer Camps, are the summer camps many adults wanted to attend as a kid – where instead of watching movies or playing video games about heroes, mythological creatures, treasure and adventure, we get to live it! Kids and teens play a character of their own design, battling monsters (with foam swords or NERF Blasters, negotiation skills, or just their wits), and solving mysteries.
Buried within our adventures is the real treasure: Education. Heroes learn the physics of foam sword fighting (momentum, power, leverage, etc). Healers learn biology and basic first aid. Woodland Rangers share knowledge of environmental conservation. Mages cast lightning bolts by learning about electricity. Negotiators learn social emotional skills for navigating conflict. And much more.
In order to run an adventure like this, you need training. So we took our decades of experience and created online training programs so others could run these exciting programs. The courses are based on our creative staff’s combined 100+ years of experience creating story-based STEM Summer Camps, weekly classes, themed birthday parties for our corporate clients.
Each course takes you or your instructors or counselors step-by-step through how to run an educational adventure with lessons, videos, downloadable documents, material lists, troubleshooting tips, knowledge quizzes, and more.
Once a course is complete, you can run the program for your clients or students as many times as you wish as long as your annual license is active.
