Zombie Survival! (New in 2017!)

We’ve taught you programming, art, music, and robotics. But, what happens when technology fails, and the dead rise from the grave? How will you know how to forage for food, navigate through the woods, and defend yourself against the hoards of undead?

Fear not! ProjectFUN has you covered.

In Zombie Survival!, we leave the classroom and computers behind and head out into the wilds of Redmond. There in the “wilderness”, we teach you skills like overland navigation, urban foraging, sailing, and shelter construction. And of course, you will have to defend yourself against the walking dead. This camp runs rain or shine!

You will learn:

  • Overland orienteering using a map and compass
  • How to identify edible plants around you
  • How to build shelters from found items

Note: this is a non-digital workshop.


This course is open to students entering Grades 8 through 12.
