Class Experience

System: Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition

Get lost in a good book this summer (sometimes quite literally) as we explore the great library fortress of Candlekeep. Our adventures will take us from the deepest dungeons of the old citadel to haunted mansions, and perhaps even all the way into outer space. Candlekeep Mysteries each begin with the discovery of a book, and each book is the doorway to a unique adventure. Acting as agents of the library it will be our job to solve each of the mysteries.

We engage our participants in entertaining, collaborative storytelling through tabletop role-playing games. We focus on the social and emotional development while simultaneously presenting academic content and developing creativity, communication skills, collaboration, and critical thinking. Our participant-to-Game Master Educator ratio is limited to no greater than 5:1.

Educator-Gamemaster: Bryan Mosley


Participants will need access to a laptop, desktop or tablet computer and a high-speed internet connection. Participants will need a microphone for use with Discord, and a video camera is a nice addition. Most laptops and tablet computers come equipped with all that you need. We find that a set of headphones might also be nice to isolate the sounds coming from the computer, but are not necessary.

My son very much enjoys the campaigns.


The online format is less engaging - my son does other stuff on screens in between turns. The fact that the dates of the class are not always set (sometimes sessions are canceled with very short notice) is frustrating, especially given the expense.

This is for Mateo’s D&D sessions with Bert. He is a highly skilled facilitator and works so well with Mateo and the other players! We are grateful to have Mateo enrolled :)

My son eagerly anticipates his weekly gaming session and leaves each one excited and eager to tell his whole family about his gaming adventures, misadventures, challenges, and achievements. The Game Academy's people and offerings are consistently awesome. We love them.
