South Bay Camp #2

June 21, 2021 @ 8:00 am - June 25, 2021 @ 5:00 pm


Note- this is the camp for players who are new and experienced players as well.  It is one of the only camps I offer this summer that trains new players, so if your child is new, you need to sign up for this camp if you want to attend other camps.

Fanwar Camps

(Palo Alto – SUMMER 2021)

Summer Hours 9am- 5:00pm!


Registration:  All families must pre-register for this event. There are a limited number of spaces available. Registration and payment are required to save your spot. To register fill out registration form and e-mail to christophermelville@fanwar.com or turn in to Christopher Melville at a Fanwar event. Payment may be given to Christopher at a Fanwar event, sent via PayPal at the above email address, or sent in the mail (PO BOX 149, Graton CA 95444).  Make checks payable to Christopher Melville or Fanwar LARP and please write your child’s name on the check as well.

COVID-19 Update: Due to the increased need for safety procedures during this pandemic, we must follow these guidelines below if we plan to attend any LARP camps this summer.  These guidelines are based on state and county laws and keep us all safe and able to enjoy this outdoor experience.  If these guidelines are not being followed, it jeopardizes the entire camp, and we may lose our opportunity to attend the camps all together, or worse, may shut down the entire camp, so please take these measures very seriously.

Cost: The week costs $350 per person.

Location: The day camp is being held at Mitchell Park in Palo Alto CA.  We usually meet near the “Push” statue, but may have to relocate depending on what other events are happening in the park that week.  If COVID-19 causes this to be impossible, we will first attempt to secure a private facility, and if that too is not allowed, we will do out camp online.

What to bring: Students need to bring a lunch, clothing for variation in the summer weather, as well as adequate sun protection and good athletic shoes.  Costumes and props are also a wonderful addition to our events.

Food: As mentioned above, lunch is not provided and students must bring their own lunches for this event each day.  If your childs wishs to leave the park for lunch, they will need written permission from you to do so.

Schedule: We begin setup around 8:30am, and start game promptly at 9am every day and play until 12pm.  We take an hour lunch break from 12-1pm and a role play only town setting from 1-2pm.  We run a second session from 2pm-4:30pm and wrap up by 5pm.  The morning is mostly active battles, skills building, and adventures.  The afternoon is heavily story based and advances the plot.  We may do crafting sessions if health codes allow and player express interest.  (If you need early drop off or late pickup- contact me).

One form per family – note- if you have already submitted this information for another camp and no contact info has changed, you only need to fill out the childs name, indicate which camps your child plans to attend, send payment, and sign the back of this form.


NOTE: The Format for Events has changed.  Only TWO camps allows new players to join who have never played before.  These camps are the (June 7th-11th) & (July 19th-23rd) Camp.  All other camps are for players who know the game already.
