You won’t find bonfires and s’mores at this summer camp, instead at Camp Divergent kids find out where they would play into the popular book series.
Each day of the week long camp features a different Faction from the Book, Candor the Honest, Abnegation the Selfless, Dauntless the Brave, Amity the Peaceful, and Erudite the Intelligent.
“Kids get a little bit of everything whether they are friendly like the Amity or brave like the Dauntless or maybe they are Divergent and a little bit of everything. There are games and puzzles and crafts and a really something for everyone,” said Camp Counselor, Taylor Gaul.
Kids do different activities to represent each tribe from scavenger hunts, and riddles to word searches, and untangling a human knot.
“The last day we get to do the choosing ceremony, where we choose which Faction we most believe we belong in, I believe I’m Erudite,” said Camper, Jonah Koppitz.
Camp Divergent is the first ever camp based off of the young adult series.
“We were really excited I talked to Veronica Roth and got permission from her publicists and they were really excited about it then we got to planning all of the activities,” said Co-Owner of Anderson’s Bookshop, Becky Anderson.
Kids grades 6 through 12, have come from all over to take part in the camp.
“I know this camp we have one or two from out of state, I think the farthest so far, we have a family who is moving back from England but decided to move a week early just so their kids could attend this camp,” said Gaul.
