Zombie Summer Camp

We are currently taking registration for the 2016 season of the original Zombie Survival Summer Camp.  We are expecting the season to fill up, so sign up for Zombie Summer Camp today. Call (781) 270-4800 to register. 

Join us for an unforgettable zombie adventure. Create your own character in an ongoing storyline that never repeats. Choose your special skills and your favorite NERF Blaster (provided or bring your own!). Decide what to do next when opportunity (or trouble) arises. Stand shoulder to shoulder with your fellow Defenders as you fight gruesome zombies, solve life threatening mysteries, protect the fragile land, and forage for supplies.

Reclaim the destiny of the human race, Defender…

Outpost 379 of  Sidleterra has called for reinforcements…

Will you be one of the Defenders to answer?
Will you be the one to accept the mission,
end the onslaught of zombies,
and bring peace to the future of this wounded land
and to her people striving for rebirth?
Take up your NERF® Blaster, load up your darts and your med kit,
and prepare to unlock the mystery protected by the undead.

But only if you survive!

Join us brave Defender. Your adventure awaits you….

At Zombie Summer Camp – with Nerf Blasters!

Zombie Day/Quest (ages 7+) and Overnight Zombie Camp (ages 10+):

Today’s Special: Try a free Introductory Lesson or Monthly Event with your Nerf Blaster at the Guard Up! Facility in Burlington Massachusetts to get an idea of what Zombie Summer Camp is like:  (limit one per person – new campers only)

  • Please enter a value between 9 and 9.
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Parents (and Campers): Your child or teen (Defender) will have a blast with all of the adventure at our camps… and learn a thing to two in the process. Many of our activities are designed to promote education while campers strive to solve the mysteries before them. For example:

*Campers learn basic first aid skills (comes in handy after a zombie attack)

*Campers learn how to plan to obtain objectives and reach long term goals (you can’t win a battle without strategies and tactics).

*Campers learn about biology, environmental sciences and conservation (the Defenders are the protectors of the land of Sidleterra, their source of adventure, life and resources).

*We have Archeologists and Historians on staff (no kidding!) who are resources for the young Defenders as they research the various civilizations (and zombies!) and past technology (powerful artifacts!) from real world history, literature and mythology.

*Life skills are refined as campers learn how to work as a team (to infiltrate the zombie’s lair), learn problem solving (riddles, puzzles and traps!) and experience the opportunity to actively practice important character traits (honor, courage and compassion).

*Our Zombie Day Camp is held at the Guard Up! Family Swordsmanship facility in Burlington, MA – located near the Burlington Mall. Our Zombie Overnight and Quest Day Camp is held at Gann Academy in Waltham, MA. Our Overnight and Quest Campers eat in the dining hall (in between your skirmishes with zombies, that is).

*Quest Day Camp provides transportation from various locations to our Overnight Camp in Waltham and back again each day. This allows Campers ages 7+ to experience the intensity of the Overnight Camp but be home each night in time for dinner.

* Our camp takes safety seriously.  We have a 5:1 camper to staff ratio.  Our average staff age is 26 – we don’t have teenagers as counselors.  All of our counselors are certified in CPR and First Aid – not just our medical staff.  Our counselors are on 2-Way Radios, which is good for our story logistics, but also available in case of emergency.  Our camp is run by parents who have their own children attend this camp.  Yes, an active adventure can have higher risks than playing computer games… but an active camper is also at a risk of having more fun!

*Our scholarship and financial aid program makes it possible for families who need financial assistance to provide their children with a summer camp experience unlike any other.
