The Wildwood is a place well known for its tall trees, sparkling springs, lazy creek, raucous music, delightful stories, and bountiful opportunities for adventure. Inhabited by foxes, beavers, rabbits, skunks, crows, owls, frogs, and wrens, the Wildwood is a wondrous land.

 

Now of course most forests are full of animals, so what makes this one so special? If you've been here before, you'll know exactly why, and if you haven't, then listen close. You see, here in the Wildwood things are different. Rabbits sometimes speak in a language you understand. Otters may run an afternoon ferry to help folks cross the lazy creek, wrens might put on award winning opera performances, skunks could try to barter their wares, and  if you're lucky, a fox might invite you to their home in a hollow tree for afternoon tea. If this sounds like your kind of place, then the Wildwood is waiting for you!

What: 

Wildwood Quest is a live action role play, guild-based journey within which participants deepen their relationship with the natural world, learn skills for living in harmony with the landscape, stretch their imaginations, hone their own unique personal gifts, and star in a whimsical tale. The story of the Wildwood will take shape each day as extraordinary characters present themselves, offering challenges, teachings, and twists to the unfolding journey.  

 

Questers are sorted into guilds, based on their answers to a personality quiz, within which they will spend the first part of each day learning skills and crafts. Guild focuses include: Scouting (stealth, archery and tracking), Healing (wild plants for food and medicine), Survival Skills (fishing, wild food gathering, fire tending), Bardic Arts (music, storytelling and trickery), and Making (art and handcraft with natural materials).  The second part of each day will be spent in small bands with members of the different guilds, completing challenges and meeting characters within the fantastical tale.

Story:

Answering the call to adventure isn’t always easy. Sometimes we even try our best not to, yet adventure finds us. So it is with this summer’s band of adventurers - a hodgepodge, mishmash, group of long-eared outcasts who have wandered into the Wildwood forest on a nearly impossible quest. They’ve journeyed from realms far and wide, across lands of ice and sand, through villages and wilderness, in search of powerful beings that have been released from their ancient hiding place and could wreak havoc across the realms. But the outcasts are not the only ones looking for these missing creatures, and finding them will require more than meets the eye.

This summer 2023, campers will join the ragtag band of adventurers, learning new skills, making new friends, and exploring this new realm as part of the Wildwood Quest.
