THIS IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEARING A STORY, AND BEING IN ONE

Epic Nerd Camp is an annual Camp/Con experience that focuses on building community through social activities, learning “hero” skills, playing games, expressing creativity, and making the kind of lasting friendships that come from summer camp! At ENC, adults who enjoy gaming, fantasy, and sci-fi can spend up to a week playing tabletop games, live action role-playing, and doing activities IRL that characters do in-game. You’ll find out what it takes to be a hero as you learn swordplay, archery, level up your crafting skills, and even learn to fly.

When you aren’t busy with your hero training, you can kayak in the lake, challenge yourself on the ropes course, and roast s’mores on the campfire; after all, it is summer camp!

At Epic Nerd Camp, you will enjoy busy, productive days following a personalized schedule that you design. Every activity day* consists of five activity periods. As we get closer to camp, you’ll be able to create your schedule online, choosing the activities you are most interested in. The instruction you receive is geared to your interests, needs, and talents. For details about activities, check out our

We’ve rented out a beautiful facility called Island Lake Camp, which is located in the Pocono Mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania. The picturesque setting of the 550 acre property includes two large lakes for an abundance of water sports, and many trails to accommodate equestrian and pioneering programs.

The camp is located at:
50 Island Lake Road
Starrucca, PA 18462

F*ING EPIC WATER BOTTLE

$20.00

I put a margarita with ice in it, left it out in the sun, and the ice was still ice the next day. It’s stainless steel, double walled, vacuum sealed, and it will also keep hot beverages hot AF for days on end. It’s got a handle, so you can clip it to your belt. I don’t, but you could. I use all of our products to make sure they don’t suck, and I use this bottle every day. Oh, and it doesn’t taste like metal, which is, you know… good.

SHOP NOW

MASSIVELY USEFUL TOWEL

$27.00

A towel is just about the most massively useful thing any Camper can carry. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth, you can lie on it, you can sleep under it beneath the stars; use it to sail a miniraft, wet it for use in hand-to-hand combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes; you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course you can dry yourself off with it, if it still seems to be clean enough.

SHOP NOW

EPIC BAG OF HOLDING

$60.00

I take this thing everywhere. For the last year, I’ve used it pretty much every day, and it’s gone with me on every trip. It has pockets and dividers that can hold a crap ton of stuff. Click to see pics of how much stuff I fit into mine.

If you are excited about what Epic Nerd Camp has to offer, you’re nerdy enough. You don’t need to have previous experience in doing any of the things you’re excited about. Trying new things is one of the best parts of camp! However, if you are looking at this as a cheap alternative to a speciality camp (i.e. circus or horses), and disdain the nerdy aspects, ENC is not for you.

August 12th-16th, 16th-20th, or both! Check-in starts on 3pm, and check-out is by 11am. Participants with tickets for both sessions will stay through.
