Doctor Who Summer Camp! (Need We Say More?)

Have kids that love Doctor Who? Looking for a great summer camp to send them to next year? Then Wizards & Warriors Summer Camp is the place you’re looking for!

Wizards & Warriors, located in Burlington and Reading, Massachusetts, offers a unique summer day and overnight experiences for kids  ages 7 to 15, using live action role play situations. All of the children are challenged to be heroes and live by the heroes code of courage, compassion, and honor.

Sounds like a place for the Doctor!

For their 2014 programs, Wizards & Warriors has been granted permission from the BBC  to use the character of the Doctor in its stories and situations. Would-be campers are being encouraged to get to know about the Doctor and his skills prior to attending camps this year, so it sounds like our Doctor will have a big role to play!

I wish a camp like this had been around when I was a kid! Sounds like fun!

About the Author

Rebecca is new to the Who world, having only recently watched the entire new series in a span of 8 days. She is no stranger to sci-fi though, being a life long Trekkie and has vague memories of seeing the 4th Doctor on US television as a child. When not watching, reading, blogging, or talking about Doctor Who, she is a fan of pop culture and loves movies and books so much she has to keep a list of both so she doesn't forget any of them. She also likes to make attempts at various forms of art including photography and painting. Rebecca is currently working her way through as many classic serials and as many books related to the show that she can find and wishes she could have been with the Doctor and Amy when they met Van Gogh.

    Rebecca, what is a summer camp, please?

  2. Tink says:

    A place to send kids during the summer when school is not in session so they aren’t just sitting at home all day. The classic version is one where kids spend a lot of time outside, playing sports, learning to swim, etc. Sometimes they are only during the day, so it ends up being daily childcare. Others are overnight or sleep away camps where the kids sleep in cabins or barracks in bunks or sleep outside in tents and are under the care of trusted adults for sometimes weeks on end.
    I personally went to both kinds of camps as a kid. Its how I learned to play a lot of different sports and swim. Its a neat experience for kids to have away from their parents for a while where they are learning a lot but it doesn’t feel like school.

    So a summer camp is essentially a place to send children to encourage them to develop a less sedentary lifestyle?

    • Noell says:

      TonyS – No, the main purpose of summer camp is to provide daytime child care for working parents, during the summer months when children are not in school. The outdoor activities and exercise are an added bonus, but not the primary purpose. There are many kinds of summer camps. My son went to a Science Camp this past summer, where he learned about chemistry, physics, marine biology, etc…

    This particular summer camp is unique in that it is focused on story telling through live action role playing. My kids have gone the past three years, and they are thrilled that the Doctor is now part of the story line.

  5. TonyS says:

    But they rarely involve sitting in front of a television set all day?
