Our young Dr. Jones' and Lara Croft's will participate in their very own dig, a field trip, a mock debate over the Parthenon marbles, and, finally, will have the chance to showcase their knowledge and critique archaeology as seen on TV and in the movies.

    Middle School Campus
    $385

    Would you like to be Master of the World? Would you like to be ruler of the Universe? Better yet-- Would you like to create your own universe!? Would you like to compete with enemies more intelligent, cunning, crafty, unscrupulous, and dangerous  than you meet on any computer or computer game?  Table-top Fantasy Battle Gaming is a fascinating, colorful hobby that challenges participants to use all of their luck, all of their skill, all of their creativity, and ALL of their imagination in fantasy warfare games to "vanquish" their foes and emerge victorious on the field of battle.  Success in tabletop games derives not from quick reflexes and trigger hands, but from planning, strategy, and tactics-- games that will challenge the mind first and reflexes last.  Each day is structured around a big fantasy or science fiction gaming event, which changes from year to year.  Last year's 'Massive Fantasy Naval Slugfest' where ratmen on an armored cheese squared off against dwarven submarines which were engaged in sinking a dead god's foot! There's no telling where we will go this year....but one thing is for certain and guaranteed...there will be a NEW game every camp that has never been seen before.  It's not all about gaming...campers will be given their own miniatures to paint up in a color scheme and fantasy theme of their choice, as well as materials to design and create their own individually decorated fantasy terrains. Tabletop gaming is an artisan's hobby!  Campers are free to spend more time on individual figure painting or fantasy game playing, according to their particular interests.  We also run similarly themed boardgames while the big event of the day is setting up-- in the past we have played GET BIT, COSMIC ENCOUNTERS, FLUXX and ARE YOU A WEREWOLF? (Check out Wil Wheaton's TABLETOP web series on Youtube for an idea about the boardgames we run during setup).  

    Down time is a hard thing to find at this camp! This camp is offered by longtime camp director, Mr. Walter O’Hara, a modeler and hobby enthusiast for nearly 20 years who has extensive experience teaching concepts of gaming. Mr. O'Hara, an operational analyst for the U.S. Army Night Vision Lab, has written for various gaming publications and was also the convention director for the Historical Miniatures Gaming Society (HMGS) and is an editor for GAMES magazine.  
    Questions?  Please email Mr.O’Hara at hotspur@rocketmail.com.  

    Please note: 
    If you have attended the camp before and have a request for a game to be run, be sure to get in touch with Mr. O'Hara so he can help plan the week.  This game camp is kid-tested and is a very popular offering. Reservation spots go real fast so SIGN UP NOW!

    Each week is independent and will focus on Design or Creation but it is best to sign up for both! The skills of Session I: Portfolio can flow right into Session II: Sewing and Constructsion to give a complete snapshot of the industry. Check it out! 
     
    The first week: Fashion Camp I: Fashion Design Portfolio
     
    This is the creative process in two dimension.   The inspirational sources include runway videos and fashion magazines translated by visual design into croquis drawing and storyboarding.  Learn or perfect perspective, shape, form, color, texture, textile design, figure drawing, live model drawing, and exploration of famous designers to create a portfolio.  The week would include morning and afternoon sessions exploring these aspects, viewing fashion show runway videos, visits to the leading area fabric store to discover and enjoy couture materials and the Museum of Women in the Arts to view fashions from other eras. The week will provide the tools and inspiration to create an impressive portfolio and skills to continue drawing and designing for life. Should a student be considering a career in the Arts or in Design, these would be a strong beginning for a Design School portfolio.
     
    The second week: Fashion Camp II: Fashion Design Sewing & Construction.
     
    This week is more technical but just as fun!  Beginners and experienced stitchers welcome!  We will view and discuss runway show videos by accomplished designers.   Then, from a wide selection of inspiring fashion magazines, available fabric and notions, design and make an outfit that fits you perfectly using traditional methods of couture including drawing, design, pattern making, transformation, and sewing.  (We begin with an easy bag project for practice!)  Work at your own pace; each part is taught and guided step by step.  All materials are included.  Join us for the basics, and take your skills to the next level!  Come sew with us!
