Diplomacy

Category: Enrichment

Overview

The year is 1914. Europe is on the brink of war. Seven Empires (represented by campers) are set to compete for rule over all of Europe. Who will prevail? Together, campers will decide — and (in their imaginations) alter the course of history forever. 

Why Diplomacy?

Diplomacy is a strategic board game of challenge and international intrigue. Many famous statesmen, political scientists, authors, and diplomats (including Henry Kissinger) have described it as their favorite game. Through it, boys learn about strategy, negotiation tactics, psychology, and foreign relations while they learn the risks and rewards of diplomatic relations. In addition to the games, the camp will include history lessons in:

  • Historic Diplomatic Moments
  • Great Diplomats/Leaders of the Past
  • Diplomatic Strategies
  • Foreign Relations
