We’re big fans of larp gallerries. We’re also very into publishing information about larps for children or youths. So when the Larp Adventure Program contacted us with some of their photographs; a gallery and some links just had to be done. Before the photographs here is some information about the larp adventure program. The larp adventure program runs larp events for Youth at various camps in the United States. These are full immersion larps for 10 – 18 year olds. The goals are great so I’m going to quote these. We promote and preserve the value of imagination and play through nurturing community that encourages self expression. We are committed to fostering the joy of life. We do this by the methodologies of multiple intelligences, multiple literacies, 21st century skills, immersive storytelling and transformational experiences. Our goal is to create global community spaces that offer world class experiences. Its use of larp to promote thinking, living, imagination and literacy in more ways than one.

The children were not actually in Greece, but on a field just beside the parking lot outside the Saint Eulalia Parish on Ridge Street. Their swords were foam and their shields were homemade. Hopeman, a college student at Boston University, is an assistant instructor for the Live Action Role Play Adventure Program. And instead of a raging war, the children were having a blast at Saint Eulalia Parish’s LARP event…”
