Wildwood Quest

an epic journey into the heart of the wild

17880733960502361.jpg

The ​Questers are safe in their cozy burrow hidden deep in the Greenwood. There they play, feast, craft and enjoy the fine sheltered forest life. But one day whispers reach them of a hoard of creatures never seen before. Soon wild forest friends begin to go missing, while the hoard seems to be growing. The Questers are called to leave the comfort of their home to unravel the mystery taking place around them. But during their long rest, the Questers have grown lazy and complacent. They've forgotten the ways of their ancestors - the ways of stealth and camouflage. They've forgotten how to use plants to heal, to read the story of tracks in the mud. Perhaps the greatest skill of all that has gone dormant, is their ability to listen deeply, watch for one another's gifts and call forth the best and brightest in their fellow Questers. It is time for the adventurers to rise and heed the calling of the Greenwood.

Who: 

For adventurous children age 8 to 13 

*13 year olds are welcome to join this year, as last year's camps were cancelled. They will participate fully in camp activities and have the opportunity to also join as characters in the storyline as an apprentice-in-training.

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 fantastical tale. The story of the Wildwood will take shape each day as extraordinary characters present themselves, offering challenges, teachings, and twists to the unfolding story line.  

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.
