CALENDAR

 

custom events

Do you have a favorite event? We can set up a custom meeting for you and all your friends!  Celebrate a birthday in a completely unique way, or just come have some fun with us. 

Why have a party when you can have an Adventure? The biggest and best party option at The Story School is the Points & Powers Birthday Party. Learn the game rules and then take on the role of a brave warrior, wise wizard or fearless healer. Then go forth into a customized adventure in a live action story. Costumed instructors provide monsters or brigands to fight, villagers to rescue, and everything else you’ll encounter. Scenery and props transport you to underground lairs, castle halls, haunted graveyards, or wherever the story takes you.  You design the theme of the party, we make your vision come true. The ending is unknown because you decide the outcome!

Using a list of simple at-home items like paper towel rolls and cardboard boxes, we’ll keep your young heroes entertained as they help craft adventure props. The adventure is physically active and may include dance, exercise, or scavenger hunt components woven into the fun.

Join us today and let the journey unfold!

  • Attendees required to have a computer with camera and microphone

  • 10 participants per Host

TESTIMONIALS

“Your organization has impressed me immensely and continues to do so. Thanks for all you do.”

HELP SAVE THE STORIES!

 

All humans are wired for stories. This is how we have passed information from generation to generation since we lived in caves. Our desire for a good story can even outweigh our desire for food or safety. Stories inspire us and heal us. They give us direction and they light the spark that becomes the fuel for pursuing a passion. They are also our most valuable tool in education. Stories provide context for lessons and help with both comprehension and retention. Why do you think fables, myths, and legends persist through the centuries? It is because they provide us with a much-needed vehicle for learning. This is the purpose and foundation of The Story School.

 

The Story School, a 501c3 nonprofit, provides story-based education to kids, teens, and adults of countless backgrounds. We use stories to teach everything from world cultures to STEM to essential learning skills. Our teachers, counselors, and instructors are professional storytellers who invite the students into an adventure where the student is the hero and the lesson is the obstacle that we must conquer together in order to complete the journey.  

In previous years, fundraising allowed us to keep our highly immersive and involved educational experiences affordable for our students. However, 2020 forced a seasonal closure of our in-person camps.  While The Story School was able to move programs online, the loss in campers, revenue, and fundraising opportunities we typically receive was staggering. We have seen many of our fellow summer camps and educational organizations close their doors permanently. These are very difficult times for small organizations without an endowment to lean upon. This is why we are asking for your assistance.
