Dragon Camp Online

Spaces Available for weekly session. Contact for more information

Dungeons and Dragons is an exciting and fun way to support your child's development that is also meaningful and empowering.  This is a game that requires participants to imagine imagination imaginatively while honing their social skills such as collaboration or persuasion and executive functioning skills like in the solving of a mystery.  Not only will the game foster the importance of science and literacy, but children will also be constantly doing math and dynamic problem solving skills.

The session is 90 minutes for 3-4 children with similar developmental profiles and matching temperament.  The program runs for 4 weeks and the children must attend all sessions rain or shine.  Each child has a vital role, and their teammates will rely on them to be there.  Children requiring additional support must be first exposed to the game in individual sessions.

 

Although it is Christine's life mission to make every camp inclusive to every child, sometimes there are just not enough children with matching profiles. Sometimes, the group setting may not be the best way for a child to thrive at that time. However, D&D is offered in individual sessions as well.

This camp is a labour of love. A good campaign takes 3 hours of planning per 1 hour of playing, for a group of neurotypical adults. Christine take additional time to makes fully individualized and customized experiences for her clients.
