    Lyndhurst Campus

    Have you ever wondered how you would fare in a zombie movie? Here’s your chance to (safely) find out! Humans vs. Zombies Jr. is inspired by a tag game that originated at Goucher College in 2005. Since then, it has spread like a virus through schools, libraries, and neighborhoods worldwide. After developing their unique character, campers will have to use their brains and bodies (armed with foam dart blasters, marshmallow launchers, and/or socks) to avoid infection in this campus-wide, week-long game. But don’t worry! The only symptom of the virus is a bandana worn around your head, and the game doesn’t end if you get turned! During this whirlwind week of adventure, campers will learn to strategize, problem solve, and work as a team as well as they engage in physical challenges all around campus. Join us at HVZ Jr. for some truly supernatural fun!
