More About Camp
This camp is a live-action role-play adventure. Your choices and actions influence your environment as well as the story to come. You are a magical prodigy who has been accepted into an internationally renowned summer school that is being hosted at Hogwarts Castle.
Upon arriving, you will explore our wizarding town (Diagon and Knockturn) to collect all the necessary supplies for the journey ahead. Don't forget to keep a weathered eye out for suspicious characters! Once properly prepared, new students are then sorted into one of our four noble houses by our talking sorting hat. After a welcoming feast, you will then move into our homemade castle to live with your new house. Each house has its own rich history and traditions. Comprised of only 25 campers and a staff team of over 12 counselors, your house becomes like your family. You will spend the first day getting to know your housemates and fellow year-mates.
Over the next several days, you and your housemates will compete against the other houses as you take different wizarding classes. Each day consists of three elective periods. Before you even arrive, you will have the opportunity to design your elective schedule. There are over 120 electives to choose from. The electives are broken into eight different fields (the arts, crafting, the sciences, sports, dance, writing related, foreign languages, and leadership). You may choose to sample across the different fields or even specialize in one field. Electives included but are not limited to Quidditch, sword fighting, drama, belly-dancing, color guard, Mandarin, and much more.
Furthermore, intrigue and mysteries stalk these ancient halls. All the counselors play suspicious characters, and you are the star of this adventure. You will battle monsters, plot with faction allies as you seek to thwart the evil plans of the Westgaards. While it is popular to search throughout the day, there is also time to interrogate the staff and hunt for clues in the fourth block.
At the end of the day, your adventures are far from over. Each night has a special theme. Dress like a muggle. Show support for your Quidditch team. Visit Hogsmeade complete with an optional Shrieking Shack (i.e haunted house). Older campers can even choose to rid the Forbidden Forest of dementors.
At the end of the week, the house cup and other awards are given during our final banquet. A special surprise ushers us for one more night of fun. Come experience the magic and live the dream! We eagerly await your owl.
