School is out and traditional camps are over, but you don’t want Little Johnny sitting around the house. Or maybe it’s your daughter Sally Shoemaucker, and while she is mature you can’t leave her home all day and she doesn’t want to visit with the in-laws. No worries, we’ve got you covered!
The quick version: give us $150 and your kids for a week of afternoons, and we will send them home with excited stories of fun, custom models, hobby tools and paints. The camper needs to be at least 8 years old.

This summer we are offering a week long summer camp centered around Warhammer 40,000. This camp focuses on painting, team play, and sportsmanship. We have daily benchmarks for students to make while integrating experiential play into their afternoons. Around the middle of each afternoon we are going to take a quick break and have a snack to recharge.
As a veteran teacher, I find that students learn far more when pursuing something and being engaged rather than when told a statement and given structured micro-managed steps. We could say that we are going to teach color theory, “light” physics, social skills, mathematics, literacy, critical thinking and strategic planning as a way to get people excited in attending. But that is really what parents want to hear. Every day the campers will be engaged in all of these and then some. This week is not about “button mashing” and sitting on a couch, it is hands-on and involved.
You can read what Games Workshop has to say about their line here. Microsoft has some thoughts on game based learning as well. You can also follow a collective body of research on gaming and electronic gaming benefits if you have more time.
