We started developing interactive online camp programs for the online environment well before the world came to a stop from the Coronavirus. Over the past 20 years, we created a powerful game system for creating story-based adventures for campers. These adventures are based on exciting stories where the campers play the role of a hero who battles villains or monsters and solves mysteries using STEM and teamwork.
The system has been refined to such a degree that it can now be applied to any story you wish to explore. It provides all of the rules of engagement with the campers, the antagonist and allies, 6 different story backdrops (think of these as the “universe” in which you run your adventure), and marketing materials for promoting your adventures.
We call this program the Universal Game System (UGS) and it can be run on Zoom and/or Google Classroom platforms which allowed you to hold weekly classes and even full-day Summer Camp Adventures in an online environment.
The UGS isn’t just a system that you purchase… it’s an actual online course that teaches your staff how to create adventures and run them as well as providing digital slides, printable instructions, and marketing materials for promoting your adventures.
These are live, interactive adventures that are run by your counselors or instructors with your campers. They are not pre-recorded videos, animated environments, or video games. So your campers and participants get the face-to-face experience and spend more time talking through or physically acting their responses instead of pushing buttons or moving a mouse.
If your camp ends up going offline and in-person, we have your camp covered there as well.
The Universal Game System has 2 versions: Online
, so if you create a 2-week curriculum, run by your own counselors who are trained on our online platform, adaptation can be immediate. If the health department lets the camp go offline and in-person, your purchase also includes training on how to run the adventure in-person with your campers.
