More About Camp
This week-long overnight camp is live-action role-play adventure. The best way to describe it is that it is a real-life video game. You are taking on the role as a magical prodigy who is attending a renowned summer school for gifted mages. The world is brimming with adventures to be had, villains/monsters to be battled, and mysteries to be solved. Furthermore, you have the ability to gain experience, which in turn allows you to level up your character (i.e. more spells, stronger spells, stronger potions etc.) The story is a choose-your-own adventure that builds upon the previous years. The choices that you and your fellow students make will have a lasting impact on future generations to come. You are the saga’s hero now, and its outcome is in your hands. Due to degree of the immersive experience, it is strongly recommended that you enjoy fantasy, solving mysteries, using your imagination, and going on dungeon crawls.
Are you not very familiar with Harry Potter? That is perfectly okay. You will still have an absolute magical time.
Are you a die-hard Harry Potter fan? Welcome! Please know that this camp is a plausible recreation in an alternative universe rather than a straight reenactment from the books/movies. A defining characteristic from the books/movies is the epic adventure that the trio goes on. The adventure is full of mysteries, plot twists, epic battles, and an ultimate showdown between good versus evil. That is what you can expect from this camp in a magical universe. The reason it is not a re-enactment is that it is hard to have a true adventure when one already knows the outcome. We figure it was better to honor by being inspired rather than straight copying.
Upon arriving, you will be able to explore our wizarding town to collect some necessary supplies that you will need to the journey ahead. Part of the town may be explored with your family, but the rest of the town is restricted to current students only. There is a wizarding robe shop, a wand shop, spell shop, magical pet shop and more! Once properly prepared, you will then be sorted into one of our four noble houses by our talking sorting hat. After a welcoming feast, you will then move in with rest of your house. Each house has its own dormitories, a common room, and a house garden.
Over the course of the week, your house mates and you will be competing against the other houses for the coveted House Cup. Each morning, you will take different wizarding electives. Each afternoon, you will have opportunities to participate in different magical clubs, interrogate suspicious characters, and go on a different dungeon crawl each day.
Each night has a special theme. You will get to dress like a muggle, to show support for your Quidditch team, or to even visit Hogsmeade complete with an optional Shrieking Shack. Older campers can even choose to rid the Forbidden Forest of dementors.
