Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) is a fantasy-based role-playing game played with 4+ people. Together with the Dungeon Master, imaginary worlds are created. Moving through the story, individual characters will form teams that explore, battle and problem solve through each adventure. Together we will gather treasure, knowledge and experience points. You can attend as a new player at any session or come as you are able.

HOME ALONE (10 –13)

Would you like your tween to learn how to make a grilled cheese? Or maybe how to properly

bandage a minor cut? They are at an age where becoming independent is cool and wouldn’t

it be great for them to learn some of these skills to help them when they are home alone? We’ll teach them some of these types of life skills, including stove safety, basic First-Aid, how to plunge a toilet and much more!
