The Wayfinder Experience

A Role-Playing Adventure for Grown-Ups

Rhinebeck, NY

Member Tuition:

We are no longer taking online registrations for this workshop.

Imagine a world where heroes and villains engage in a never-ending battle between good and evil, where the laughter of faeries is echoed by the roar of dragons, where powers exist that can raise the dead, heal the wounded, and enchant the living.

Now, imagine yourself within this world—a hero of legend! You have entered the Wayfinder Experience.

Using improvisational theater curriculum, a noncompetitive combat system, and unleashed imagination, we create an interactive fantasy world to develop characters with unique personalities and relationships, and then assume their identity within the fantasy universe. This allows us to explore aspects of our own personality by assuming a completely new one, providing an incredible opportunity for self-exploration and personal insight.

Throughout this role-playing adventure, we build community with those in the teens program—and we all join together to play in the Saturday night game.
