Chess WizardsConsidered one of the greatest games ever invented, chess teaches many important life concepts such as how to win graciously, how to accept defeat with dignity, concentration, and sportsmanship. Learn chess rules, positional tactics, and basics to more advanced moves with the guidance of an experienced chess master. We will be divided into groups according to experience, and end the program with a mini chess tournament. All levels welcome.
Dungeons & Dragons Heroes QuestsRole playing games give players experience with a variety of skills including improvisation, critical thinking, math and public speaking. We will use Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition rules to guide us through the process of creating characters and then testing their might through an interactive story. Everyone will be taught—at a comfortable skill level—how to make characters and serve as dungeon masters. Please note: We discourage students from creating characters before the first day of class. Instructors and students will collaborate to determine what kind of story they will create and in the past, students who arrived with a character in hand have been disappointed if their character doesn't fit the group decision.
LARP Heroes AcademyLive Action Role Play (LARP) allows you to participate in an interactive narrative, similar to the “choose your own adventure” books using a combination of theater, martial arts, and costume/prop/stage design. We combine these arts with critical thinking, creative problem solving, and community leadership skills. In LARP Foundations, beginners learn the basics of LARPing and returning students continue to hone their skills and knowledge. In LARP Games students in the Foundations class get to practice what they learned earlier in the week. LARP Adventure Program’s Heroes Academy® is a combination of theater, martial arts, and costume/prop/stage design. We combine these arts with critical thinking, creative problem solving, and community leadership skills. Our instructors will work with students to do hands-on creative activities and explore everything from game systems to character development to prop / costume building.
