  • During the day, campers are heroes solving STEAM puzzles, encountering immersive escape rooms, battling our trained monsters, and leveling their game characters using real-world knowledge of science, physics, chemistry, and first aid.
  • In the evenings, our campers relax with board games, armor-crafting, storytelling, and other camp bonding activities.
