Date(s) & Time(s)::
Daily from June 29, 2013 until July 27, 2013
Location: Brehm Preparatory School, 1245 East Grand Avenue, Carbondale, IL
Brehm’s students will participate in an epic, open-ended, multi-player experiential learning adventure as they prepare themselves for the ultimate test – surviving a zombie invasion! “Our summer program is designed to encourage students to become self sufficient as they explore basic survival skills, to learn how to survive as a tribe as they explore their environment, and to get to know their fellow players through shared adventures,” said Christine Strusz, coordinator of Summer Scenarios. “We will be utilizing quest-based learning, instead of grade-book style, which will allow our adventurers to move through the branches of our program – academic, experiential and recreation – as they progress toward their goals and learn from their mistakes.Return to event list.
Brehm’s first summer program, to be held June 29-July 27, is called Summer Scenarios: Self-Reliance.
