About Us

The Story School Inc. is A 501c3 NonProfit corporation providing story-based education and resources.

The Story School, Inc furthers its mission to promote learning through storytelling by operating two educational summer camps a year – a day camp as well as an overnight camp in Salem, MA (at Salem State University). Our camp programs provide a platform where kids can "unplug" from screens and media that monopolize most of their attention. Through storytelling, we tap into the creativity and imagination of our students and immerse them into a world of make believe that both instructors and students create together. Through this context children are more inspired to learn and become actively engaged in their education.

The first summer camp is called Zombie Summer Camp and is where campers create their own character in an ongoing story-line. They choose special skills and their favorite NERF Blaster, Then they decide what to do next when opportunity (or trouble) arises. Our heroes stand shoulder to shoulder with their fellow Defenders as they fight gruesome zombies, solve scientific mysteries, protect the fragile land, and forage for supplies. Each summer, the story line is based on either a literary piece (IE: George Orwell’s 1984) or an historical event (The Bubonic Plague) and involves education in widespread subjects such as science, creative problem solving, teamwork, and more.

The second summer camp is called Wizards & Warriors Summer Camp and is similar in concept but with a medieval setting. Heroes play wizards, warriors, alchemists or healers and spend the summer battling or negotiating with characters throughout literature, history, or mythology. They fight fierce monsters, uncover ancient mysteries, decipher scrolls (while learning Latin), make potions (while learning actual chemistry) and practice valuable skills in this dynamic learning adventure where stories are used to teach.
