Meet the kids who spend their summer battling zombies. Pictured, Nerf Zombie Camp director Brad Thibodeau got targeted by campers.
At Nerf Zombie Camp, play is serious business. Pictured, Benjamin Tull, 13, (center) cheered before a battle.
Inspired by Dungeons and Dragons and popular computer games, the camp organizes complex games that prompt campers to build their own multilayered narratives.
The narratives are guided by counselors and junior counselors called “monster campers,” but they also unfold organically. Pictured, camp counselor Matt Tanner.
"Probably one of the only reasons I have any leadership skills is directly related to this camp,” said Nate Streeger, 16, a monster camper. Pictured, counselor Jacob Small.
