Camp Dates: August 21-25, 2017
Location: 32500 W 13 Mile Rd, Farmington Hills, MI 48334
Description: This is a highly unique camp where we blend real-life role playing with thrills, strategy, team work and technology to create a highly memorable camp experience. Your child will participate in a real life zombie survival adventure that combines strategy with STEM!
Your child will partake in a real-life zombie survival adventure where he or she gets to choose what role their character will play - Special Ops, researcher, investigator, riddle solver, armor maker or being on zombie watch. As the story unfolds as to why they have been summoned to this location, your child will undergo an adventure that will have him or her gathering and analyzing DNA samples from zombies, building alarm systems using electronic circuits to warn them of incoming zombies, sending in autonomous robots into a room full of zombies to gather and analyze data, using drones to get an aerial view of zombie locations, going on search and rescue missions, using 3D printed parts to create solutions to puzzles, searching for and using Nerf guns with limited ammo to protect themselves from zombie invasions and even battling the zombie boss in an epic battle using bows, arrows, cross bows and highly advanced Nerf guns! The goal is to think critically, be smart and survive this adventure untill the end to find out how and why these zombies came to be.
Some of the great things about our camp:
- Unique camp that blends real-life role playing with technology.
- Your child is not sitting at a computer all day. Lots of indoor and outdoor
running around and exploration involved.
- Lots of interaction with other kids. Lots of team building activities.
- Learn a variety of skills every day - from critical thinking to strategy,
learning about DNA, electronic circuits, robotics programming,
3D printing, operating drones & much more.
- Highly professional set up with a high end make up artist and very realistic looking zombie actors!
- Zombies! Lots and lots of zombies!
Pre-requisites: No prior programming knowledge required.
Additional Information: All equipment will be provided to students. Students SHOULD NOT bring their own Nerf guns and/or ammo. We want every child starting off at a basic level and discovering clues to find bigger and better weapons. Our staff will dress up in costume, makeup and zombie masks, so it is important that you talk to your young hero before signing up for this camp so that they know what to expect. The key to their success and enjoyment is to stay calm and remember that this is all just make believe. At any time, your child can ask a zombie for help if they are truly frightened.
