Not for sore losers!
If you are reading this, it’s probably needless to say you’re a big fan of board games. Probably even a fan of everything that includes the word ‘game’, am I right? And with the summer vacation lurking around the corner, you’re probably already thinkingabout how you can possibly kill all of that spare time…
“Uhm. With board games, duh?!”
Okay, I know, stupid question: we knew how you’re gonna spend your vacation. But with whom are you gonna do this? Are you one of those fortunate few who is surrounded by like-minded board game enthusiasts? Well, great for you! But for those who aren’t that fortunate, we might have the perfect solution: Sportakamp:Board Games.
“What. There is a camp for game fanatics here in Belgium and I didn’t know about it?! Shame!”
Yes, shame. Shame indeed. But you know what? Allow us to tell you a bit more about it… The camp is called Sportakamp: Board Games and is organised by no one other than Sporta itself.
“Wait. Isn’t that the organisation that mainly focuses on sport camps?”
Correct! But you have our word, it’s not a trap. You won’t be tricked into sporty activities, we promise! But come to think about it, there are some really intense outdoor activities on the menu. We are talking about action packed laser shooting and even massive LARP games. LARP stands for Live Action Role Playing, which basically means you get to become one of your favorite board game heroes. This way, you can be the hero of the story yourself! Together with some kick-ass animators from Sporta, fancy costumes and the lot of you, this will be an activity you’ll never forget!
“But wait. Didn’t the title state ‘board games’? Where are the board games?”
Yes. You are absolutely right! And no need to worry, because apart from the amazing outdoor activities described above, you’ll also be spending hours and hours playing your all-time favorite board/card games – and discovering tons of new ones. Whether you’ll be playing with a bunch of friends or with a couple of complete strangers, it will be endless fun nonetheless. Promise. So, we at Cartamundi would like to encourage every game fanatic between the age of 3 and 99, to give Sportakamp: Board Games a shot. You won’t regret it! For the ins and outs, do’s and don’ts, whens and wheres of this amazing camp, we highly recommend you to visit the Sportakampen website.
“Sounds like a lot of fun! But unfortunately I’m not from Belgium. What now?”
Not to worry, summer camps like this one are really starting to pop up everywhere around the globe. So if you can’t get to Belgium, we warmly recommend you to be on the lookout for similar summer camps in your own region. Take Redcap’s Corner board game camp for example. This camp takes place in Cedar Park Texas and lasts for TWO WHOLE WEEKS! In the first week campers will learn to play various games, from Dungeons & Dragons to Carcassonne and Magic: The Gathering. Sounds great doesn’t it? But it even gets better in the second week when they get to design their very own board game under the guidance of multiple game design experts!
So, what are you waiting for? Start your very own quest for a board game summer camp in your neighborhood! No idea where to start? One golden tip: Google is your best friend. Have a great time playing games everyone!
