Wizards & Warriors STEM Summer Camp in Burlington, MA and Surrounding Communities

Wizards & Warriors and Zombie Summer Camps takes the lead from the State of Massachusetts and the new laws surrounding nondiscrimination based on gender identity. As such, Guard Up Family Swordsmanship and The Story School Summer Camps offers a gender-neutral housing system as of the summer of 2015, where space for gender-neutral housing is provided alongside the existing male and female dormitories.

What is gender-neutral housing?

Gender-neutral housing assignments refer to sleeping room assignments where the camp may place campers and staff of any gender identification to reside.

What will staffing for gender-neutral housing look like?

Gender neutral cabins will be supervised by both male and female staff.

How will bathrooms be handled?

Since our bathrooms have private stalls, we will provide bathroom time in accordance with the Massachusetts state law which mandates that a child or adult must be allowed access to a restroom according to the gender with which they identify. We will also be providing gender neutral bathrooms for people who are not comfortable with either boy or girl gender.

How will shower time be handled?

Since our showers have private stalls and changing areas, we will provide shower time in accordance with the Massachusetts state law which mandates that a child or adult must be allowed access to a shower according to the gender with which they identify. We will also be providing gender neutral shower time for people who are not comfortable with either boy or girl gender.

In an effort to access the benefits of gender neutral housing while ensuring the comfort and security of all campers, cabin rosters will be created based upon the best fit for each camper.
