Outdoor Summer Camps in Bellingham & Seattle

Kids need outdoor adventure in the summer time, and when it comes to fun outdoor day camps, nothing beats Adventure Quest!

We have 20 years experience running Adventure Quest summer camps where the kids become the heroes of a dynamic and exciting adventure. It is a week-long Live-Action Roleplaying experience that is fun and extraordinary.

Participants choose mythic archetypes and powers, band together as a team, solve riddles and dilemmas, negotiate treaties, interact with interesting characters, and swashbuckle with foes using safe foam swords. In small groups of about six children, everyone gets a chance to shine and be the hero of a mythic quest!

Our summer day camps are children’s programs of up to a week long where the “Questers” are dropped off in the morning, picked up in the afternoon, and between those times, they embark upon an exciting adventure at a local park. Each week is a new quest with its own unique set of challenges, such as reading a coded map, battling monsters, riddling with tricky leprechauns, negotiating a peace treaty between the dwarves and goblins… there is guessing as to what might happen! As they journey, the Questers earn new powers, find treasure, and perform noteworthy deeds, all of which is recorded so that they may make use of these in successive quests.

Based upon the length of the program, the age range, and the Questers’ interests, our day quest programs are crafted as experiential education through a co-created live-action roleplaying game. In essence, these are extraordinarily fun classes give children the opportunity to develop decision making, critical thinking, teamwork, communication, ethical reasoning, and many other 21st century skills. See more information about our experiential education outcomes.
