Pokémon Summer Camp is designed for New Trainers that might have collected cards at school but aren’t sure how to play Pokémon by the official rules. We have set an age restriction on the camp of children going into 4th grade next fall because Pokémon requires the ability to read & understand the cards, and the ability to do basic math.
We start our Pokémon Camp off with learning the game basics of the Pokémon Trading Card Game, and kids will practice playing quite a bit for the first few days. We will then work on some deck-building strategies and teach the kids how to take care of their collections. We will also work on the Pokémon Spirit of the Game and game etiquette, and we’ll wrap up the week playing in an official Pokémon Tournament.
Sprinkled throughout the week, we will be doing some Pokémon crafts that the kids can bring home, including designing our own t-shirts at the beginning of the week and then walking down to Meltdown Graphics where each kid will be able to print their own shirt!
Monday: Introduce trainers and learn the game basics. Each trainer will receive the Trainer Kit & Dice.
Tuesday: Start our discussions on Spirit of the Game and good sportsmanship. Trainers will practice the basic rules with their new theme decks. We will sleeve them and put them in the deck boxes to keep them safe.
Wednesday: Trainers will learn to store and care for their card collection, and the basics of trading. We will also start talking about deck construction. Trainers will receive their binder and 4 booster packs to add to their decks.
Thursday: Trainers learn advanced deck building techniques, talk more about the Spirit of the Game, and play a Pokémon tournament! Trainers receive their Elite Trainer Kit and receive their booster packs during the tournament.
