SPECIAL NOTES ON THE ZELMORE PROGRAM

Our academic year curriculum runs for 3 sessions, with each session lasting 10-12 classes. Sessions run from September to the beginning of June. Each session covers a different topic intrinsic to LARP activities and to the community arts. We're proud to say that our curriculum not only covers educational benchmarks for the theatre arts, STEM learning, multiple intelligence education and more, but we also foster an environment where youth can make life-long friends and build a community to call their own.

Session 1 - Sep, Oct and Nov: Character Creation – Make original heroes to play LARP, discover your own personal legend within; Martial Arts for Self Confidence and Self Control – How to play the game with respect for one self and other.

Session 2 - Dec, Jan, Feb and Mar: Martial Arts for Self Confidence and Self Control – How to play the game with respect for one self and other; DIY Projects – Build your own LARP gear, learn to think creatively and make solutions.

Session 3 - Apr, May and Jun: How to play LARP – Rules and how to use your character abilities and have game play adequate; Event Prep and Playing your Character, Time to celebrate for all your hard work and apply the skills you have learned.

Each year the student attends, their skills are further attuned to these foundational LARP and educational subjects. After three to four years of completion of classes and projects, students are encouraged to apply for our community arts leadership program called the Evenda Marshals Academy where youth learn how to host and run LARPs.
