LARPing for Everyone
11/23/2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Everyone has the right to play!
Kong Academy organizes regular events at local parks around the Seattle area to build community through play. These are drop-in, donation-based classes.
We give 1/3 of all proceeds back through scholarships, a free pilot program at Seattle Public Schools and donations to YouthCare to support the homeless youth of Seattle.
We invite you to come move with us, have fun, and support our community!
Please register beforehand to let us know you’re coming, and fill out our online waiver before you or your child participate. Suggested donation is $10-$20. Pay what you wish! Don’t let money stop you from coming!
Meeting point for Gas Works Park is by the playground.
In this live action role-playing (LARP) program, students ages 10+ will pursue various goals within a fictional setting represented by the real world. They will portray fun characters with safe, soft props and use creative problem solving skills to interact with an adventurous storyline and each other. LARPing is a fantastic physical exercise, creative outlet, stress reliever, emotional intelligence builder, platform to practice conflict resolution, and much more. Get ready to explore an imaginative world of endless potential and mystery.
All necessary equipment for the class will be provided by the coach
