Camarillo, CA Humans vs. Zombies Returns for Winter 2014/Early 2015 Game Sessions. Dec. 20, 2014 & Jan. 3, 2015


Watch a video trailer for the upcoming games above.

After a lack of the usual Summer games, Camrillo Humans vs. Zombies organizers are back with two games for the Winter 2014/Early 2015 sessions! The organizers had to relocate to an Airsoft field for last year’s Winter games, but we are back now at Mission Oaks/Mission Verde Park. If you know anything about Southern California Humans vs. Zombies games, you’ll know that there’s not a lot of colleges or schools that have them over here. Which is why the creators of this area decided to organize this game back in 2008. If your visiting and in the LA County area, why not come over to play some HvZ? If your thinking about going, we would love to have you!

There is a $10 admission fee. The proceeds will go towards the Wounded Warrior Project. We, the organizers have gotten permission from the game’s creators to charge people.

I’ll be going to Day 2/Game 2! If you want to say hi, meet up, or possibly get a squad together to play, feel free to let me know!

Where:
5501 Mission Oaks Blvd
Camarillo, CA, US
(Searching up Mission Verde Park, Camarillo CA in Google Maps will also direct you to the right place.)

When:
December 20, 2014 & January 3, 2015 (Saturdays)
(They are separate games, if you can’t make both, feel free to go to only one then.)

9 AM to around 5 PM.

What to Bring:
Layered clothing to keep warm.
Water, theres only a couple of water fountains.
Money for Lunch or your own lunch
Blasters (nothing to crazyily modded)
Darts
A good attitude
STOCK DARTS ONLY
$10 for the Entry Cost

What NOT to bring:
Banned blasters from Nerf Wars
Common sense stuff that’s way too powerful.

Camarillo is about an hour drive from Los Angeles. The drive is well worth it though. Some unique things about this game is that the mod team changes every year. Each mod brings a different outlook on game missions and objectives, which makes for a truly unique experience each game. Game time is usually from 10 am to 4 pm with a lunch break around noon. Some of the unique or different rules can be found below.

– There is no starve out period, and stun timers are shorter to make up for the day long game.

– The park has two decent sized fields on it, but the major terrain perk is that there’s a two or three mile long winding creek that is great for missions and surprise attacks.

– Only 1 safe zone.

– An additional, smaller park two blocks away that are also sometimes used for missions.

Feel free to leave any questions here or on the Facebook event page.

Hey there everyone, Camarillo HvZ for Winter 2013 is back to announce game dates and a location to everyone. We’ve had some problems with the City of Camarillo recently enforcing their code, so we can’t play in Mission Verde Park this Winter. In the mean time, we’ve secured a new location to play at at the Channel Island Airsoft Field in Oxnard. Even though there is a $10 payment, mandatory eye protection, and waivers that must be signed, the organizers and myself believe that this play area will be a refreshing new take on our usual Camarillo HvZ games. A few photos of this new location can be viewed below.

This past Summer 2013, we had 70 Players attend Day 1, and 89 Players attend Day 2. The Day 2 single day attendance set our biggest single game day record so far! This will also be the 5 year anniversary of the games, so thank you for everyone of you who have attended and gotten your friends to come. Here’s to 5 more years of HvZ!

Hey guys, if you happen to be in Southern California, feel free to come to the Camarillo, Mission Oaks Park day long game. If you know anything about Southern California Humans vs. Zombies games, you’ll know that there’s not a lot of colleges or schools that have them over here. That’s why I’m pushing hard for this game by inviting people I know as well as blogging about it.

Camarillo is about an hour drive from Los Angeles. The drive is well worth it though. Some unique things about this game is that the mod team changes every year. Each mod brings a different outlook on game missions and objectives, which makes for a truly unique experience each game. Game time is usually from 10 am to 4 pm with a lunch break around noon.

There is no starve out period, and stun timers are shorter to make up for the day long game.

The park has two decent sized fields on it, but the major terrain perk is that theres a two or three mile long winding creek that is great for missions and surprise attacks.

Only 1 safe zone.

An additional, smaller park two blocks away that is also sometimes used for missions.

Camarillo Humans vs. Zombies now has dates for Summer 2013! I’m not the head organizer this time like in the Winter 2012 games, but I will be moderating and helping organize though. These past games had 81 people people attend first day, and then 87 people the second, which makes the second day the biggest Camarillo HvZ event in it’s history! If your visiting and in the LA County area, why not come over to play some HvZ? If your thinking about going, we would love to have you!

I’m the dude with the panda accessories!

If you’ve been following my blog since about 2011, you should know that Camarillo Humans vs. Zombies is the biggest, open, Nerf related even in Southern California. Every Summer and Winter, a group of volunteers organize and host day long Humans vs. Zombies games in Mission. I helped organize the Winter 2012 HvZ games, and I’m helping organize these Summer 2013 games. That’s partly why I haven’t been uploading as much videos or posting on here as much.

The Summer 2013 game dates have been decided!

The first game is on July 13th, A Saturday, at 9 AM.
The second game is on July 21, a Sunday, at 9 AM.

Search “Mission Verde Park, Camarillo, CA” on Google Maps to get the location and directions to the event.

Check out the Facebook event page here. You can discuss the event there, and please RSVP if you plan on going. Below, I’ve also linked music videos to two previous events that I’ve been to.

5 Basic HvZ Tips Camarillo Humans vs. Zombies has Taught Me (Basic Nerf Article)

vlcsnap-2012-07-27-19h45m53s220
The last group of humans headed towards the final Summer 2012 Mission

In my two day long games at Camarillo (Day 3 Summer 2011, Summer 2012) I’ve had fun, made friends, and learned a bit more about Humans vs. Zombies. I’m here to import some of this knowledge to the newer players out there. It’s been about 5 weeks since the Summer 2012 game (July 20) so heres 5 Basic tips, or points of emphasis, that should help you stay alive as a human for as long as possible.

1. Nutrition/Energy are essential for good performance.

A decent breakfast, but it still wasn’t enough.

The above photo is what I ate for breakfast of the Summer 2012 game, and it still wasn’t enough. My usual peanut butter and banana sandwich plus an egg on the side filled me up, but by lunchtime it was gone. The mods ran us around the park while removing our safe zone. I felt very drained and on the hungry side. Always make sure your appropriately fueled for games and missions. Not only will you feel better, but you’ll be more aware, alert, and quicker to respond. I really don’t need to go into the benefits of proper nutrients during exercise and sporting event, since it’s a pretty common thing.
