Dungeons & Dragons Camp

Prepare for an adventure at this D&D summer camp at Math 'n' Stuff!

D&D Summer Camp


Dungeons & Dragons is a dice-based fantasy story-telling adventure game. This class will guide students through a group adventure in which they work to improve their character's skills and abilities and to find items to help them on their quest, all while working together as a team to ultimately overcome different monsters or other challenges they will face on their journey. Curiosity, quick and creative thinking and problem-solving, and of course, communication will make the final telling of the story, one for the ages.

Each player will be taking on the identity of a character in a land of make believe. Each character has strengths and weaknesses. The story-telling nature of the game generally rewards curiosity and creativity. The nuts and bolts of the game require communication, strategy, teamwork, and probability -- most actions in the game require rolling a die to determine an outcome, good or bad. Adventurers will have a primer of the rules at the beginning of the course and develop a deeper understanding through play and experience. Over the course of the camp, students will develop skills in creative story-telling, critical thinking and problem-solving, working together, listening, and reasoning using probability
