Camps run 5 days a week from June 8th to August 14th, 9am to 3pm with before and after care available.


All Summer Camp staff will go through background checks and child abuse clearances and be skilled in working with young people.  There will be outdoor time everyday and both facilities are air conditioned and comfortable.  Lunches are available for an additional fee through Queen & Rook  including Vegetarian, Vegan and Gluten free options.  


The youngest adventurers ages 6 to 11 will be at Queen and Rook Game Cafe and will choose to either learn about Board Game Creation from rules creation to proto typing or learn about Roleplay games from creating characters to world building through writing exercises and generative play the youngest adventurers will create something to take home and share with you every week.  


Our higher level  (12 to 15) adventurers will be at Philly Game Shop where they will get all of the game and roleplay knowledge of the younger ones but then also take steps to publish their works and dive deeper into the business side and learn presentation skills and play testing.
