Dungeons and Dragons Out and About
This camp is for those who want to create their own fantasy world through this collaborative storytelling game, while making the most of our beautiful Maine summertime! D&D campers get to immerse themselves in the imaginative role-playing game of Dungeons and Dragons - but with a twist! While most Dungeons and Dragons games take place indoors around a table, our group of role-players will develop their unique D&D adventure outdoors in various locations around the Greater Portland area. Whether in a forest clearing, a grassy meadow, or on a rocky beach, the D&D game story will find infinite fuel for the imagination.
Campers will return from a morning of outdoor adventure, story-weaving, and game-playing to a creative space where creatures and characters continue to come alive through a creative project and D&D storytelling training for aspiring Dungeon Masters. D&D campers will each create their own unique “Wizard’s Tome”, a magical journal and record-keeper complete with secret compartments.
