If you have ever wanted to be a part of the B.P.R.D. you might finally have a chance this Summer thanks to Dark Horse's recent team up with TrackersPDX, a family organization which teaches kids of all ages to work outdoor and acquire traditional skills through a variety of outdoor camps and programs.
This Summer the two companies will be teaming up to host the B.P.R.D. Training Camp in Portland, Oregon where kids ages 9 to 17 will acquire "field time" by camping out. They will learn how to build shelters and use stealth, tactical and martial arts training. The groups will be split up by age, 9-10 year old kids will participate in the "younger recruits" training and learn the haunted history of Portland while practicing different field skills. The "older recruits" will have a more in depth experience where they will have the opportunity to travel to and investigate "local haunts."== TEASER ==
Ages 9-10 Younger recruits train survival and field skills in local greenspaces. They also spend their day investigating the haunted history of our city, piecing together the larger mystery revolving around the legend of Adolph Aschoff.
Ages 11-13 & 14-17 Older recruits also investigate nearby "haunts", then finally travel to Camp Trackers near Sandy, Oregon to investigate reports of dark figures and strange happenings at the remnants of the old defunct town of Marmot. Here they search for legendary and lost pioneer cemetery (true story) to ask local spectres and spirits about the town's history and the legend of Adolph Aschoff, the man who is said to have sealed away an ancient evil upon the founding of the town.
Wednesday-Friday Overnight Older recruits culminate their week with a two-night stay at Camp Trackers, our outdoor wilderness site in Sandy, Oregon. This is the perfect opportunity to focus on many of the skills we are training.
