Have lots of fun and improve self-confidence in this Wayfinder Experience role-playing adventure game!

The Wayfinder Experience combines sports with play, rugged adventure with imaginative role-playing, and problem solving with creative expression. During this empowering 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 helps you overcome fears, challenge your skills, and develop a healthy self-image.

This role-playing adventure is recommended for teens who have never participated in a Wayfinder Experience before. You are introduced to the art of sword play, magic systems, and story and character workshops, as well as elements of theater and play.

Experienced participants are also strongly encouraged to attend and often get the chance to take on larger roles in the adventure and help build community. All teens join in building community with those in the grown-ups program, and everyone comes together to play in the Saturday night game.
