A Visit to the BookPeople Ranger’s Apprentice Lit Camp

We took a trip out to McKinney Falls State Park yesterday to visit the BookPeople Ranger’s Apprentice Lit Camp. Set in medieval times, John Flanagan’s Ranger’s Apprentice books follow a 15-year-old orphan named Will as he trains to be a member of the Ranger Corps (sworn protectors and spies for the kingdom).

We joined the apprentices at the end of their lunch, and tagged along when a group of them went on a special mission through the woods. While on the mission, we were ambushed by two dastardly Wargals. The fighting was fierce, but unfortunately our main archer wasn’t close enough to his bow, and they escaped through the trees. We only hope as the camp goes on the apprentices’ abilities will grow and eventually they can secure the kingdom.

Alison, head of marketing at BP, bravely risked her personal safety to capture some amazing pictures of the day’s events. Check out our flickr stream here.

  3. […] A few posts ago we shared some photos and stories detailing our adventure at BookPeople’s Ranger’s Apprentice camp. We had a pretty awesome time, so we’re super excited that the camp is starting to get some national attention. Check out this article that Publishers Weekly wrote. It’s got a lot of great background information and an interview with camp director Topher Bradfield. […]
