HENRIETTA, N.Y. (WHEC) — Rochester Institute of Technology is offering a virtual summer camp revolving around the popular game "Dungeons & Dragons."

Camp Tiger will offer week-long online sessions from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., July 6 through Aug. 14. The summer workshops are available for fifth through 12th graders. 


"Dungeons and Dragons" combines team building, storytelling, probability, research, improvisation, and critical thinking. Groups of five players will use those skills to win their campaigns as wizard, paladin, warrior, or rogue. 

“The competitive gameplay is a different experience every time students play and requires strategy,” Kraig Farrell, director of Camp Tiger at RIT’s K-12 University Center, said. “Dungeons and Dragons is one of the hottest camps each year.”

Participants will need access to a computer, webcam, and the Internet. No prior knowledge of the game is required. 

Each one-week session costs $150 and is limited to 20 campers. Camp registration can be completed here
