It’s available for ages 9-17 and will happen this July in Oregon. While of course this is just for fun, the site describes it like serious business: “Join the B.P.R.D! The Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense needs your help to defend humanity against various occult horrors and paranormal threats.”
If you sign up before February 22, you’ll get an early bird discount. Flexible payment plans are being offered for some families.
Camp goers will be able to learn and do the following: “Tactical training, survival in any environment, martial arts and self-defense specific to praeternatural entities, hand to hand weaponry (foam swords, bows and more), investigation and forensics, folklore & mythology, potion and charms 101, telepathy training, gadgets of the occult: EMF detectors, polarized lenses and other paranormal investigative gear, comparative analogy and physiology of monsters, construct your own quality foam swords and training weapons, meet the artists of the comic book that documents the adventures of the B.P.R.D., Bureau history and paranormal research.”
So some of it sounds like bonafide education and some of it sounds like geeky fun. Are they going to open a camp like this for grownups?
