RESCHEDULED: "Heroes Academy" LARP (Live Action Role Play) Adventure Program!

11:00am - 7:00pm

Thanks to a Summer Learning grant from the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, we will offer a fabulous all day in-person LARP program!

"Imagine…If you could walk into your favorite book, play, TV show, or movie... what if you could become your favorite character in this story? A story where you control all the decisions, actions, and directions of this character? What if you could influence the outcome of the story in this fantastic world? What would you do? What would you become?"

LARP Adventure Program is a combination of theater, martial arts, and costume/prop/stage design. We combine these arts with critical thinking, creative problem solving, and community leadership skills in a safe, socially distant format that takes place outdoors on Library grounds and in surrounding park areas. 5th & 6th graders create their own characters and play out a storyline quest. Older teens can be Non-Playing Characters (NPCs) and help run the game. Come and be part of the unique interdisciplinary experience that the LARP Adventure Program offers!

The event will lead by the certified instructors and assistant instructors of LARP Adventure Program. Each instructor has at least four years of experience in LARP’s program. The instructors will teach middle school-aged youth how to be responsible for themselves, while high-school aged youth can CIT and learn event management, leadership skills, and personal development tools for a successful life.

Rules for maintaining 6' distance at all times and wearing masks will be built into the game. Participants will need to bring their own water bottles and non-perishable bagged lunches.

This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

You will need two different screens for this game night (like a laptop and a cell phone, for example), one for Zoom and one for game play, but you don’t need a Jackbox Games account to play. In order to maintain internet safety, we require registration so that we can send you a private link and a password to get into the session, and will send you a new link and password each week.

Please click below to register, & make sure to provide your email address. Our website is currently experiencing some difficulties and you may get an error message after you register, but the registrations are going through; we will call you to let know we got the registration! You will receive an email with a private, secure link to participate via Zoom. If you are using a cell phone, you will need to install the Zoom app, which is free, but if you are using a laptop or desktop computer the link will open without anything needing to be installed.
