Program description:

Be the Hero of a Mythic 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 Questers 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 Questers 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.

We often offer one “Quest” for 4-10 continuous weeks, with each week a chapter in the story that the Questers help to create.

Interested in having an Adventure Quest after-school program at your school?

Contact us and we’ll be happy to set one up!

Here’s how it could look: 

Location: Your school! We’ll be outside as much as weather permits, but need a room or covered area at the school that we can Quest in during inclement weather.

Dates/Times: 1.5 – 2 hours a day, one day a week, starting as your school ends

Ages: 8-12 (recommended for Elementary) or 11-14 (recommended for Middle School)
Does your child want to be part of an on-going Adventure Quest after school? If there are 4-7 children interested, and a willing school, we’ll bring our Adventure Quest program to you!

Registration: We can handle all the registration, so the school doesn’t need to do any extra effort on that end. Or, if the school prefers to handle the registration, that’s fine too 🙂

Contact Harper by phone at (360) 836-0386, or by email at info@majesticadventures.net to see if we can bring an Adventure Quest program to your school.
