Meghan Gardner (whom I interviewed
a little while ago) has spent years developing a fantastic collection of LARP camps for young people, and now she wants to license the systems and take their LARP camps nationwide. They're using Kickstarter to raise some funding, which means you can help make this fantastic project a reality! Here are the details, in Meghan's own words:
Guard Up! Inc. just announced that we will be raising funds to license our youth program called “Wizards & Warriors”. This program is designed to engage kids and teens in live, story-based adventures where they play a character in an ongoing storyline. In these adventures, the kids (we call them “Heroes”) fight monsters with foam swords, win treasure and solve ancient mysteries. We also have a futuristic version that uses Nerf Blasters called “Zombie Blaster Adventures”. Both programs involve kids interacting with creatures and characters out of real life history, literature, and mythology.
Please consider supporting our Kickstarter Campaign:
100% of your donation goes towards making our license a reality… which will help individuals and facilities across the globe offer this exciting program to children and teens who would benefit from the opportunity to experience an adventure where they are the hero… and make lifelong friends. Whatever amount of support you can provide is appreciated. And whatever help you can provide is made even larger if you do so within 24 hours of reading this. The campaigns with the most number of donations within the first days of going live have a higher chance of being listed as a “Popular” campaign on the Kickstarter main page. With your help, we can get there!
Thank you so much for your support. This is the start of an exciting journey for all of us at Guard Up and the young heroes we hope to reach!
As I write this, the Kickstarter has only 5 days to go, and is still a bit below their goal - so please act fast!
