(Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone)

Have you still been waiting for your Hogwarts acceptance letter?

Well the wait is almost over for 11-17 year olds in Victoria this summer – the ones who’ve always known that there’s something magical beyond the Muggle world.

Youth entrepreneur Maddy Kirstein and her team have been dreaming of bringing Hogwarts to Victoria since 2015, and that dream is set to become a reality.

Learning real life skills with a magical twist

This three-day interactive overnight camp for teens will be hosted at Shawnigan Lake School, and will include a Whomping Willow, lake, and Quidditch pitch. Students will have the chance to be sorted into houses and go on quests to receive house points.

But it’s not all just for fun and games – there’s a method to the madness! The camp also plans to offer subjects that have real life applications:

  • Divination – tea leaves and tarot
  • Herbology – salves and essential oils
  • Potions – herb properties and tea brewing
  • Defence Against the Dark Arts – micro-expressions, lying, body language
  • and more!

The kids will have a chance to form their own Golden Trio while also improving their creativity, leadership, and critical thinking skills.

They need your help 

The organizers need your help, to turn this Hogwarts Summer Camp dream into a reality by securing funding for their location and other necessities.
