In 2017 our Troop took the time to convert our Skillz Camp into a LARP (Live Action Role Play) camp. Our Scouts figured out what the camp will be called, what are the quests, how they can earn a bit more gold coins through the weekend.
With their characters created and ready for adventure! Our Troop explored the land of Hyrule to seek new skills, thrills and fortune. Their goal is to accumulate gold buy completing quests and gaining skills. While they are in the village, they can warm up by the fire, visit the tavern for food, go see the local merchants and wizard for items they may require. Ask the local magistrate for quests, or ask all villagers for any clues for some of the mysteries surrounding the kingdom of Hyrule. There are rumblings in the forest of a hidden elf village, where the Adventurers can learn new skills from the elves and earn skill points that they can apply within their battles.
Below you will find all the details on how the Troop put this adventure together and how we used Plan-Do-Review to bring all of this to reality.
