Zombie Camp

You will learn how to protect yourself and your fellow villagers from zombies with essential stealth and survival skills. Learn how to find shelter, shoot an arrow, forage for edibles, locate drinking water, pack a bug-out bag, develop emergency plans, and a variety of other skills (like orienteering and first aid) you’ll need to be prepared to survive a zombie invasion! 

Special scenarios and missions pit you and your team against the zombies (ok, people acting like flesh-eating foes). All campers will have the chance to play survivors and zombies in different scenarios, and create zombie make-up and costumes.   

For parents: Why a zombie camp? Because it will be fun!  And campers will learn some valuable skills that will come in handy in a variety of challenging situations, such as leadership, emergency preparedness, and using resources effectively.  

All program supplies, field trips, and special guest speakers are included in the registration fee. The staff-to-child ratio is 1:8 or better.

A week before camp starts, parents will receive an information handbook and an emergency information card. Please be sure to review the information in the handbook; fill out the emergency card completely, and give it to site staff on the first day of camp. Send your child with a lunch and snacks each day, wearing closed-toe shoes (i.e., sneakers).  

Due to the uncertainty of the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not currently collecting payments for future programs. As registrations open for programs, we will be contacting customers and processing registrations from the waiting list for each activity on a first-come, first-served basis. Please sign up for the waitlist for an activity if you are interested in registering for it if/when it becomes available.
