Program Description: 

The Roleplay Workshop runs afterschool and summer enrichment programs that use a roleplaying game called Abantey as an enrichment tool. Much like Dungeons and Dragons, Abantey allows students to explore their artistic side by being heroes in an imaginary setting. The game was designed to practice math skills, solve a mystery as a group, and gain communication and problem-solving skills. The Roleplay Workshop is an inclusion program and has been effective for participants with Asperger's syndrome or other special needs. Students are grouped by age and experience and there is a ratio of no more than two learning-challenged students per group of six.Weekly afterschool meetings are held throughout the school year. Kids can spend the whole day at the workshop on school holidays. The cost starts at $35 per day or $100–$120 per month.Camps:2013 Week-long Summer Sessions:
