WELCOME! DIGIVATIONS Camp Demigod’s Camp Half-Blood and Camp Fandom are a blend of world building through innovation, role playing and speculative fiction which we refer to as the Innovation Bakery. 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, 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 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. Camp Demigod campers enjoy similar journeys and quests with whom they feel safe exchanging their thoughts, designs, creations and passions while making a meaningful difference in the world, and having FUN.

"It's Awesome at Camp Half-Blood & Camp Fandom!"
Our childrens'/teens' Innovation & Literary DIGIVATIONS Camp Demigod includes two theme camps:
Camp Half-Blood - Greek mythology-Percy Jackson style
Camp Fandom - world building through innovation and role playing and mash-ups - Percy Jackson, Dr. Who, Avatar: the Last Airbender, The Hobbit, The Hunger Games, Steampunk (Leviathan), and more. Campers may attend 1, 2, 3, or 4 week sessions. There is a mini 3-night Camp Fandom for those who just want to try Camp Demigod!
What is a Mash-Up?
A mash-up is where SF/Fantasy (speculative fiction), Steampunk (Re-imagining the Victorian Age with futuristic technologies), Mythologies from different cultures (Middle-earth to Ancient Asian influences through the elements) and Dystopian Societies (Hunger Games, Divergent Trilogy) are blended together through the awesome creativity of our campers with the support of our world class faculty.
These mash-ups are threads which run through both camps and intertwine literature, media including film and television, along with music and the visual arts and fashion and costume design also serving as ingredients.
Q. What are Campers Doing?
Camps will be brought to life through our Campers engagement with
DIGIVATIONS unique NASA award winning methodology which drives the
concept of innovation, quests and world building through role playing and
SF/Speculative Fiction. Camp Demigod students' will use their
imaginations and creativity to create, write, produce, and direct
improvisations, films and games. Campers' works will be brought to life
through the skills they will develop and hone participating in classes encompassing
innovation/sphere of influence, art, music, tactical training including
theatrical swordsmanship/combat (historical), martial arts and thai chi
(focus on bending), and training like an astronaut. Campers will also
create costumes, armor and weapons, as well as real and virtual sets
using different computer programs, rockets and robots, among other
materials. Read more...
Q. Having Play & Social Time
the above will be supported through a myriad of activities ranging from
hiking through Point Roberts beautiful trails, walking the many beaches
and romping and rolling through the unique clay cliffs. Swimming is
also a popular favorite. Downtime also provides campers with the
opportunity to play a variety of board and card games and just chat and
speak freely among themselves about their passions while also creating
bonds as they explore their inner voices. Read more...
