    Pierson Library Board Game Summer Camp

    Pierson Library Board Game Summer Camp

    Does your young teen love to play games? Tired of having them stare at a screen? Sign them up to play board games at this summer camp of the Pierson Library Family Game Club.

    Modern board games are fun, engaging, offer a variety of choices, and reward thoughtful play. We will teach games which showcase the different mechanisms game designers use today to give unique experiences each time. Your child will acquire skills such as to strategize, budget, negotiate, evaluate chances, and all that in a playful, social and fun way. Weather permitting, some time will be spent with outdoor games.
