It is wonderful and - no kidding - it is giving my boys 6 hours+ of happy, constructive occupation per day. My eight-year-old is just old enough to do it independently with almost no involvement from us. A younger kid could do it with a parent. It's so well done - absolutely worth the price.

Because this is a “virtual” camp, non-Maryland residents are permitted – and encouraged! – to register.
This summer, Weapons and Warfare goes the distance!
This distance learning program will guide your warriors through the process of creating a table-top battle at home. Virtual campers will learn how to make a castle model and various siege engines (catapult, etc.). Discover the world of heraldry and create your own family crest. In addition to 4 daily instructional videos emailed each morning, templates and written instructions will also be included. These daily lessons can be revisited all summer long to create many epic adventures in your own home!
A flexible list of needed supplies is below.
Please note that virtually everything can be substituted with similar or everyday items. For example, the large dowels can be replaced with a nice straight stick from outside. The small dowel and wooden discs for wheel assembly can be replaced with an old rolling toy! Those things listed as optional are either to reduce waiting time, omit extra steps, or to add a fun finishing touch.
-paints, brushes, mixing cups
-scrap wood as drilling surface
-ruler and/or measuring tape
-one or two cheap toy dinosaurs (head will be removed!)
-paper grocery bag
