Be the Hero of a Mythic Quest!

Forget video games! In Adventure Quest, the children and teens become the heroes of an incredibly fun and dynamic quest, working together in a mythical and magical world to overcome interesting challenges, solve mystifying riddles, brainstorm unique solutions to puzzling dilemmas, and swashbuckle with foes. The campers experience the excitement and confidence that comes from banding together to defend their village, solve a perplexing mystery, or negotiate a peace treaty.

Wielding safe foam Swasher swords, the campers play dueling games and act out challenges like fending off a bullying ogre or a thieving band of pirates, in an environment that teaches good sportsmanship, fair-play, and respect for others. Then they exercise their minds as they try to piece together the clues in a coded riddle and follow a map to buried treasure.

My son loves your camps! I asked, “if you could go to all of the Disney parks or to Renaissance Adventures this summer, which would you choose?” He said, “Renaissance Adventures!”

This series will follow the Rattums pirate crew on adventures throughout the pirate isles of Thael.

Each one-day quest will be different from the others, and will stand on its own, but the three will also build on each other and tie together on the last day. No prior questing experience necessary. These are a great way to try out our program and get a taste for our week-long Summer Quests.
