WELCOME to Camp Demigod!
DIGIVATIONS Camp Demigod’s Camp Half-Blood and Camp Fandom are a blend of world building through innovation and role playing. These Camps are based on the principles that kids have an enormous reservoir of creativity and innovative ideas which they look forward to sharing with other like-minded individuals who hold common interests.
These common interests are often fueled by stories embodied in literature such as Percy Jackson and the Olympian Series, the Hunger Games, Divergent, the Leviathan or media such as BBC television series' Dr. Who and Sherlock and other series such as Avatar: the Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra. Movies including Avatar, the Hobbit and Inception also ignite kids interests so they create innovative new works based on imagined worlds. Camp Fandom is a mash-up of these different themes and stories.
Half-Blood's location and environment brings Percy
Jackson and the Olympian Series to
life through quests which play out through the week starting in the rustic
demigod cabins, and traversing through the beaches, trails, and clay cliffs.
Demigod's are forewarned that Mount Olympus and the House of Hades is waiting
for their visit and the monsters will be waking up from their winter hibernation
to fiercely greet them this Summer. Camp Half-Blood will have plenty of tactics
and combat training for the campers who will make armor, swords and other
weapons which they will master through the expertise of our swordsmen and
swordswomen. Following the adrenaline rush from the day's quests and busy slate
of innovation and creative activities (art, music, drama), the nights will be
spent keeping watch on the Camp and deciphering clues for the next day. Bon
fires and healthy desserts (ice cream too!!!) along with board games such as
Mythomagic and discussions of Ancient Greece and Greek mythology both in English
and the Greek language will fill the evenings. Another amazing part of the Camp after the claiming ceremony includes your
demigod realizing their fantasy of living in their cabins for the week where they discuss their quests, share common interests and create memories of a lifetime (laughter filled conversations under the stars and planets above is also part of the fun).
Camp Demigod is operated and led by world class faculty. Camp Founders, Dr. Steven Lee Berman and Anne Deane Berman, PhD have been awarded three Summer of Innovation Awards by NASA, among many others. Camp Demigod is located in a uniquely beautiful, natural and rustic environment and serves as an oasis for your child to explore their inner world, strengthen their confidence, and recognize their unique abilities through interaction with a community of their peers as they develop as mentors and leaders. Camp Demigod campers enjoy journeys and quests with each other especially since they feel safe exchanging their thoughts, designs, creations and passions while making a meaningful difference in the world, and having FUN.
