Magic: the Gathering Draft Camp


Campers will develop their skills as Magic players through total immersion in limited game-play, the art of building a deck from a limited pool of cards presented at random. Players of any experience-level will hone their skills and develop into better, more-prepared Magic players. This camp helps foster deductive reasoning and decision-analysis skills.

Camp Schedule

A more detailed schedule and curriculum will be posted once we’ve finalized our preparations.

Monday: Campers will each open a sealed pool of six Magic boosters, and work with counselors to build a deck to play casually against other campers throughout the day, all the while learning important card-selection and limited-play strategies.
Tuesday through Thursday: Each day the campers will draft, using three Magic boosters to play in a small casual tournament, building upon their card-selection and signalling strategies and improving their play.
Friday: The campers will draft one final time, again using three Magic boosters, but this time with the ability to win more boosters based on their tournament record.
