This workshop is part of Family Week. Learn more.

For teens ages 12–17.

Have you ever dreamed about living in a faraway land, being a gallant knight or a powerful wizard, sitting at the foot of a sacred oracle, slaying a dragon, or being a mysterious healer or a stealthy spy? In this camp, fantasy comes alive, complete with costumes, masks, characters, treasures, spells, potions, and quests.

The Wayfinder Experience combines sports with play, rugged adventure with imaginative role-playing, and problem solving with creative expression. During this journey, you are given the opportunity to cooperatively play, dance, act, and choose for yourself what to do when faced with the unexpected. It is an experience that will help you overcome fears, challenge your skills, and develop a healthy self-image.
