Week 1 • Rising Grades 5–9 • Outdoor Traveling Dungeons & Dragons
Outdoor Traveling Dungeons & Dragons (Rising Grades 5–9)
Location: Waynflete (360 Spring Street)
8:30 a.m.–3:15 p.m.
Join the fantasy world of dragons and heroes through this collaborative storytelling game while making the most of our beautiful Maine summertime. Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) campers get to immerse themselves in the imaginative role-playing game—but with a twist! Each day brings a new outdoor game location—a beach, rocky shore, city park, the ruins of a fort. Bring your imagination; SUMMER will provide the dice, dungeon masters, and transportation to off-campus locations.
Program Director of Dungeons & Dragons Mike Dank
Mike Dank is a Performing Arts and Music teacher at Waynflete, where he teaches drum and bass lessons as well as rock ensembles. As part of Waynflete’s Enrichment department, Mike leads the Dungeons & Dragons club, which is open to the public. After school D&D started in 2015 when a group of middle school students approached Mike to help them get started with this adventure. Mike now supervises several weekly D&D games, supported by a team of high school Dungeon Masters, including some of those original student players from 2015. Mike and his team offer a fast-paced imaginative adventure for Middle School Dungeon & Dragon players, who look forward to this weekly club with great anticipation.
Mike has a long history as part of Waynflete SUMMER. Over the years, Mike has led all sorts of programs, from the beloved Construction Crew for K-1s, to rock band camps, to Makers, to D&D. Mike is happy to return to camp this summer to focus exclusively on the ever-growing Dungeons & Dragons program. As always, he will come to camp with some imaginative magical “makers” projects up his sleeve to provide breaks and variety for our enthusiastic D&D players.
