The Merry Barn is growing! Introducing our new summer programs for teens:

Wild Beyond the Witchlight: A Dungeons and Dragons Storytelling Series: Sundays 3-5 p.m. June 19, 26, and July 3, 10, 17. Limited to six explorers, ages 11-14. Cost: $160. Calling All Wizards, Faeries, Royalty, and Rogues! Join Hope McSherry on an adventure across whimsical lands of imagination, in a Dungeons and Dragons storytelling series. Our campaign, The Wild Beyond the Witchlight, is full of character creation, treasure hunts, puzzles, and more!

Dungeons and Dragons is a unique role playing game where players create a group of heroes that travels and works together to defeat whatever evils come their way. Over the course of their campaign, the party will face challenges, encounter monsters, and solve a core mystery – while developing their backstory and forming connections to both the fictional characters around them and their real-life party members. The tone of this game is truly set by the players, and invites all shades of silliness, drama, and intrigue!

Fantasy and Fiction: A Creative Writing Series for Teens. Ages 14-18. Six-week series. Thursdays, 4-6:30 p.m. June 30, July 7, July 14, (no July 21), July 28, Aug. 4, Aug. 11. $30/session, $170 for series. Bring to life your own magical worlds of fantasy and fiction. In this six-week summer series for teens, writer, artist, and healer Kelsy Hartley will guide young writers in their own storytelling projects. We’ll explore place making, character development, and the hero’s journey, referencing beloved mentor texts and beautifully crafted writing. We’ll incorporate physical movement to wake up our bodies; we’ll make art to widen our creativity; and we’ll write and share in a supportive community!
