For most of our programs, we meet in a public park and so we do not have a secure or centralized facility for gathering/storage. Anything your Quester needs access to throughout the day they'll need to take with them in their backpacks. However, we don't wear the backpacks all the time; we travel to an area, set backpacks down, do some questing, and then travel to another area with our packs. Occasionally, if there's something the Quester won't be needing at all during the day (such as a car seat that needs to be in a different vehicle at pickup), it can be left in a Majestic Adventures vehicle, but that is not guaranteed, and should be arranged beforehand.
Our summer quests and regularly scheduled programs are not open to five year-olds, for various reasons: Younger children often have difficulty understanding safety protocols while playing with our Swashers There are issues of size that can make it difficult for younger (smaller) children to "compete" in swordplay with the older (larger) children We find that children under six have a much shorter attention span, so the quest may not hold their interest for as long as it needs to and therefore they may distract the other children by becoming distant. Our quest leaders base the questing challenges on age appropriateness and cognitive ability and can find it challenging to offer riddles and puzzles that can be solved by a significantly younger child. We offer birthday parties for five-year olds, and can create special programs for your five-year old and their friends, as long as additional parents or other adults are there to assist the Quest Leader with safety. See Home Quest and Family Quest for more information
Yes! Please make note of it on the registration form which Quest Leader inspires your children the most, and we'll do our best to accommodate it. Note that it is never guaranteed that your child will be placed with the requested leader or friend.
No. They are owned by Artix Entertainment and have absolutely no involvement in our programs, as we don’t have any involvement in their online games.
Tips are always appreciated by our Quest Leaders, but they are never expected. Our Quest Leaders are paid better than the average camp counselor.
We can host a Birthday Party or special event during any weekend you schedule one for. Please see birthday parties and events. Sometimes we run Adventure Academy or a variety of ongoing weekend quest programs. If you are interested in having Majestic Adventures run a Home Quest program for one or several weekends in a row, please contact us.
No, but they are helpful for the experienced Quester. Of the various books we offer, the Adventure Quest Game Book should be the first book to buy, as it is the essential book to play Adventure Quest. It describes all the standard Rules, Races, Paths, Equipment, Pets, and Powers. You can order it here.
Pack a backpack for your child with a hat for sun protection, a bag lunch with a snack, at least one filled water bottle (two for extended days), a light poncho, warm clothes (for Holiday Quests, as we are outside as much as possible even in the winter!). Your child should be ready with sunscreen already applied. Hiking boots are recommended and give more traction outdoors, but sneakers are adequate. Please do not allow your child to bring candy or gum, pocket knives, electronic games, money, or anything of value.
Throughout the year we collect a large amount of items that are left behind by campers. We encourage you to write your child’s name or initials on clothing, water bottles, and any items that they might bring to one of our programs. If you believe that one of your child’s belongings may be in the lost and found, please notify our office staff promptly. We keep our found items at our truck for the duration of the program (eg during the week it was lost at summer camp), after which they are taken to the office. MA promises to keep items in the lost and found for at least two weeks, and if there’s a name on the item, we will attempt to contact you about picking it up. After two weeks or several unreturned phone calls, the lost item will be donated to charity.
Absolutely. If you are curious about what a quest is like, you may join in for an hour or so during the day. Please talk to the Quest Leader and the office about what a good day or time is for the visit.
