Always wanted to be a part of the B.P.R.D.?  This summer, kids in Oregon between the ages of 9 and 17 will get the chance to solve the mystery of Adolph Aschoff.

From the website:

Recruitment and Training

Find out if you have what it takes to join an elite team of paranormal investigators combating the forces of darkness from all across the globe. We immerse you in tactical training of all forms, including survival skills in any environment (both earthly and non), martial arts and self-defense specific to praeternatural entities, hand to hand weaponry (we train foam swords, bows and more) and forensic investigation. All these key skills that every agent must have, plus you are steeped in the history of our Bureau and legacy of paranormal research.

Call to Action

Recruits get actual field time during the entire camp. Learning is hands-on with essential survival skills such as shelter building, stealth and tactical and martial arts training.

What is really cool about this ploy, is that the camp is partnering with Dark Horse Comics, and at the same time, it gets kids to take part in a giant history lesson about their city.  Where was this kind of stuff when I was a kid? Back in my day, camp consisted of making leather wallets to the beat of a drum, while our councilors yelled at us to work faster.
