Heroes Journey

April 27th to 29th at Camp Denison – Heroes Journey: The Call, The Descent, and The Return.



End of year events have been an important part of the L.A.P. curriculum since we began running classes in Arlington in 2007. Part LARP back story, part graduation ceremony, these events follow the students through their foundation curriculum in middle school. Each event is largely organized and put on by the corresponding class of high school youth, with the guidance of our adult staff, as a way to contribute to the inter-generational learning of our community.

Many students have found it rewarding to not only PC their own end-of-year-event, but also to NPC those of the other classes. This event entails PC participation in one event and NPC participation in the remaining two events. The schedule for the year events are as follows:

1st Year Event: The Call will be held on Saturday April 28th from 10:00am to 12:00pm.

2nd Year Event: The Descent will be held on Friday April 27th from 8:00pm to 11:59pm.

3rd Year Event : The Return will be held from Saturday April 28th at 2:00pm to Sunday April 29th at 2:00pm.

In this setting, we find a co-creative community where we learn to not only appreciate ourselves, but to appreciate others as we hold space for their self discovery. By being part of a container, we can learn that sometimes the most rewarding moments in life are the ones that we leave no footprints in. Rather, we understand the beauty and strength that comes with transcending knowledge from one generation to the next and being a steward that fosters the joy of life.
