What is Adventure Quest?
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.
Adventure Quest makes creative use of safe foam Swashers in an environment that teaches good sportsmanship, fair-play, and respect for others.
A Brief Look at Quest Programs
“What are your camps like, exactly?” is a question we hear quite a bit. Browsing our website and reading the information can give you some understanding, but to really know what our programs are like is impossible without experiencing them (we recommend you watch our video for a full sensory experience). Here is our attempt to try anyway.
Kids have an amazing imagination. When they are told a story, their brains create a vivid experience filled with all the senses.
Our “Quest Leader” staff are skilled storytellers that weave the participants – the “Questers” – into the tale by allowing them to be the first-person heroes of the quest. It is the Questers’ decisions that matter, and as these decisions and actions are made by the kids, the Quest Leaders are equally skilled at modifying the plot of the story to factor in the heroes’ decisions.
When the heroes must overcome some obstacle in their journey, the Quest Leader uses props, sports equipment, Swasher swords, and game mechanics to challenge the heroes to see if they succeed and what the results are.
As each scene progresses, the story unfolds, and the kids experience what it is like to make difficult decisions, succeed or fail at challenges, work together as a team, battle against fierce opponents, and emerge victorious to save the kingdom.
It is an unforgettable experience, fun in every way, and an incredible tool to develop 21st century skills.
