"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. 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.
