Dungeons & Dragons Summer Camp Program Explained

Some people would say recent shows like Stranger Things have made Dungeons and Dragons popular again, but we know better – it’s always been the best, nerdiest game, everyone can play!  The recent surge in curiosity about the game has even landed it an article in the New Yorker!

Stranger Things - Dungeons and Dragons Summer Camp Program

DnD is a tabletop RPG (role playing game) that incorporates imagination, storytelling, problem solving, and action. Each player creates their own unique character and then go on epic adventures with a group of friends.  What could be better!  The game never gets old because the possibilities are endless – no two games are the same.

Many people have heard of D&D, but don’t really know what it is all about.  Getting started can be a bit daunting as there are lots of rules and character building can be overwhelming.  Fear not!  Our DM’s (Dungeon Masters) are experienced and can help even the newest newbie get up and running.  As the game progress and characters moves through the story, the DM will help each player level up – securing new abilities that make it possible to complete the quest!

The basic set up of a Dungeons and Dragon game is creating a character with different characteristics like strength, wisdom, and dexterity. The DM is “in charge” of the story and comes to the game with the details of the quest, story and world the players are working in. The game starts with the DM setting the stage – “Your group stumbles into the main square in town and immediately a hooded figure sitting on a bench waves you over.” The players then can say what they want to do and the DM decides if it is possible.  If so, the DM asks the players to make a check – which is when you roll dice and see if you succeed.  A low number equal a failure, 1 being a critical miss, and high numbers mean a success, 20 being a critical success. Each roll of the dice can help your character save the day or create quite a mess.  As the game proceeds, making a check can also incorporate any special modifications available based on character level and ability as collected along the way.

Kids interested in learning about DnD should join us for summer day camp where we will teach them everything they need to know to play. We will start from the beginning and simplify certain aspects to make it easier to learn.

After we play for a bit in the morning, we will also be creating weapons and props that will bring each campers character to life.  We will also set out into Green Lane Park on a small, real life quest of our own!

Once camp is over, kids can continue to play this interactive, unplugged game with friends or even at area comic book stores which sometimes offer special Dungeons & Dragons session just for kids!

Till next Time,

5 Reasons Why Great Parents Send Their Kids to Camp

This article was originally published at acacamps.org by Audrey Monke, MA.

My shy, quiet nine-year-old went to camp not knowing a soul. Two weeks later, she came home transformed. She blossomed. She made friends, learned a multitude of activities, felt safe, loved, confident, and happy — really, really happy. As hard as it was on me, it was all worth it for her. It was the single best thing I have ever done for her.
—First-time camp parent

Many parents won’t allow their child to go on a school field trip or school outdoor education trip unless they are chaperoning, so it’s no surprise that those same parents may find the idea of sending their child to sleep-away camp incomprehensible. As a camp parent, you may get a shocked response from one of these “non-camp” parents. They may ask you things like, “How can you stand having your child away from you for so long?” or, “How will she survive without you?” or, “Isn’t he too young to go to camp alone?” Or, they may comment, “I would never send my child away to camp for two weeks.” In all of these negative responses, there is an underlying criticism of your parenting.

If you find yourself in the awkward position of being criticized for the decision to send your young child to camp, you may want some extra “ammunition” to defend your decision. And, if you are never in the position of defending your camp decision, let this list remind you about just a few of the many reasons why you are being a great parent by sending your child to camp!
