This summer, we’re hosting board game camp for 6th to 8th graders at our Powelton Village location. Each session runs for two weeks, Monday through Friday, from 12:30 PM to 5:30 PM. The first week campers will learn to play a variety of board games (such as Carcassonne, Coup, Dixit, Forbidden Desert, Karuba, King of Tokyo, Santorini, Stone Age, Survive: Escape From Atlantis, and Ticket to Ride) and specialty tabletop games (such as Dungeons & Dragons, Heroclix, Magic: the Gathering, and Star Wars: X-Wing), fostering critical and strategic thinking skills. The second week they’ll work with other campers to design a board game of their own, applying those skills from a different angle! Our counselors are primarily educators (or otherwise experienced with children) and have all received background, criminal history, and child abuse clearance. But best of all, campers take home the starter product used to teach them each specialty game, as well as a copy of the board game they design.
