Pokémon Training Summer Camp

Come join us for this fun Pokémon Trading Card camp at Math 'n' Stuff this summer!

Pokemon Summer Camp


This program teaches the basics of card organization and protection, plus basic game play and beginning strategy for Pokémon the trading card game. For more experienced players, more advanced strategies and activities will be offered. Throughout the camp, students will be learning about the social, emotional, and physical benefits of play with a focus on collaborative play.

Basic reading and math skills required. Otherwise, only a desire to learn and play with other like-minded players is required. It helps if the player knows something about Pokémon, but this isn't a requirement to learn and play.

The day is broken up into two halves: Morning session is when we learn about a new concept and practice it. Following a lunch break with time to run around and get energy/wiggles out, Pokémon trainers return to practice what they learned and battle each other with their decks. Each session is about an hour and a half with an hour saved for lunch.


What to bring:

Water and a lunch! Sunscreen and snacks are a good option, too!
