We will meet at a central drop off location, either at our campus or another designated place with our bus and transport your scout, and potentially yourself if this is a parent involved activity, but we do ask for some help with the costs of that.

Description

AdventureScouts is an ongoing development program for young boys and girls to learn Wilderness Survival and Awareness, Folk Skills and Lore, Swordsmanship, Performance Art and Natural History using mythical play, story and Educational Live Action Role Play (EduLARP) to make learning valuable skills exciting.

Kids learn best through engaging play and interactive challenges. AdventureScouts will complete tasks and demonstrate skills to earn Marks of Achievement and advance in rank. Our mission is to build lasting community and intimate connection to the natural world while adventuring and questing in the wilds.

It is our goal to provide a place for young boys and girls to meet strong mentors, build lasting bonds of friendship, learn valuable life skills, connect with the wilds, and build strength of character.

AdventureScouts are guided by our qualified Guild Masters and Mentors, and with the help of parents, volunteers, and community members, they receive encouragement to pursue their individual interests, gaining knowledge through activities and challenges. As children discover themselves and become responsible and ethical young men and women in their community through achievement and service, AdventureScouts develop a sense of belonging, giving them confidence to face the many challenges along the path to adulthood.
