One Day Adventures

One Day Adventures  

These Saturday events have a little bit of everything! We do a sampler of our summer camp programming that includes sword games, improv games, and, of course, a live action role playing Adventure Game. Great for first timers or returning participants, our One Day Adventure Games fall into one of two categories: “Campaign” style and “One Shot” style.  “Campaign” Adventure Games feature stories that are interconnected and build on each other while “One Shot” Adventure Games use stories that are entirely contained to that one Adventure.  Minimum age for the event varies for one shot games, but our campaigns are always 8 and up.

The Campaign series this year is “The Galactic Frontier,” an ongoing Wayfinder Experience Offseason program in which we play Adventure Games together that build on player and community choices to create a continuous game world.  Participants needn’t have participated in earlier episodes to join. Come and join us for our next One Day!

Mission & Philosophy

Wayfinder’s Mission & Philosophy

Our Mission

Is to create supportive communities for youth that foster personal growth and empowerment through cooperative play and storytelling.

Camp Philosophy

Wayfinder is committed to the idea of learning through active involvement. Our program is designed to encourage outstanding young people to develop a greater purpose in life. This philosophy of experiential education is evident in everything we do.


The Wayfinder Experience is unique. The workshops we run throughout our weeks of camp teach our participants leadership skills, self-awareness, and on the fly decision making. They are then given the chance to practice all of these skills at once through the live action role playing Adventure Game. The Adventure Game is a transformative experience that pushes players physically, mentally and emotionally, while immersing them in an exciting and engaging fantasy world.

We place our emphasis on strategies that help young people learn to make effective use of both their available resources and innate talents in order to tackle the challenge of becoming productive citizens in their own communities. Wayfinder’s many workshops, games, and exercises train participants in:

  • Social interaction
  • Community building
  • Leadership development
  • Improvisation
  • Crisis management

Wayfinder’s camps and events are held in beautiful, natural environments that allow for safe and supportive education, while still giving a space to have some fun in the outdoors. Through Capture the Flag with foam swords and a variety of other physical games, we strive to teach athletic skills that encourage character development, while still providing entertaining experiences. Our physical program built upon non-competitive game theory engages youth in activities that promote cooperation, sportsmanship, and teamwork.

Our outstanding staff serve as positive role models for campers participants. Wayfinder staff members are employed as workshop instructors, summer camp counselors, and community coordinators. We are responsible, friendly, and professional veterans of the live-action role playing entertainment industry, with many years experience dealing with participants of all ages. We love what we do, and we want to share it with the world.

Each staff member works diligently to help foster self-confidence, responsibility, and individual growth for each participant. We help kids and teens push limits while being mindful of boundaries. We take what we do very seriously and go out of our way to make sure that all attendees are safe, comfortable, and happy. Safety is our top priority. All of our summer camp staff undergoes rigorous training to ensure that they can quickly and capably deal with any difficult situation that may arise.

Wayfinder strongly believes that the benefits of our programs and live action role playing continue beyond last-day farewells to form a foundation for a life of adventure, purpose, and lasting friendships.
