Welcome To The Wayfinder Experience

It’s more epic than your favorite fantasy movie. It’s more exciting than your favorite video game. It’s also a community of friends that accepts you for who you are, not what you look like. It’s a safe place where you can relax and be yourself.

IMG_3616Imagine a camp where no matter who you are or what you look like you feel accepted. A camp where staff and campers hang out and laugh together. A camp where the workshops are challenging and entertaining at the same time. A camp where important decisions are made by the entire community, where your voice truly matters.

Now imagine if that was just the beginning. That during this camp you could enter into a completely new personality and interact in an epic adventure more real than any video game or movie. A role-playing experience that transcends anything you have experienced. A new world to explore, evil to conquer, wounds to heal, treasures to obtain, magic to cast…where the action and the story itself depends entirely on your choices. We wanted that place too, so we started The Wayfinder Experience. Read more about how we can provide one of the best times of your life.

Acting

The Adventure Game at the Wayfinder Experience is based on Improvisational Theatre, a free-flowing form of acting in which there is no set script. Our staff will introduce you to Improv through entertaining (and often hysterical) games and provide you with a sense of confidence in your improvisational abilities. During the experience, participants are given a chance to become the characters they will create and to participate in numerous scenes and interactions. Many actors and actresses have hailed the Wayfinder Experience as “one of the most valuable and necessary training exercises an actor or actress can participate in.”

Sports

i-sLPb4SF-MFor those of you who enjoy rugged activity, the Wayfinder Experience is perfect for you. From large games of Capture the Flag, to mass battle enactments, we challenge our participants to push themselves to their physical limits, while ensuring a safe and fun time for all. The true challenge lies in our culminating game, as participants are granted the opportunity to defeat enemies, defend strongholds, and dash through this new world in a desperate race to complete their quest all while using play-safe weapons and with an emphasis on cooperation rather than competition.

Fantasy

If you have seen, read and enjoyed Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones or any fantasy-based movie or book, you will be ecstatic at the chance to enter the very worlds you had only previously watched from a distance. The Wayfinder Experience allows participants to become the heroes they adore, and to battle the villains they despise.

The Outdoors

wfe2012 part2 321All of our workshops are conducted in beautiful, natural settings whose atmosphere only adds to the brilliance of the experience itself. Participants quickly acquire an appreciation for the beauty of the outdoors, as well as confidence in their familiarity with their environment. From hiking to mountain climbing to star gazing to sitting around a bonfire, the Wayfinder Experience utilizes its environment to engage participants in the wonders of nature.

 

Video Games

The Wayfinder Experience is a totally immersive entertainment experience, one that transforms interaction from a flat-screen into reality. Instead of viewing and interacting with the world through a controller, participants experience adventure through their own eyes. It’s like living inside your favorite fantasy video game.

Making New Friends

282580_10150237604490980_394890_nLike most workshops, the Wayfinder Experience promotes a setting in which participants may form lasting bonds with new friends. Through the interactive game, Wayfinder also provides a unique opportunity for participants to bond not only in this world, but in many others. With an emphasis on community awareness, trust exercises, and cooperative play, the Wayfinder Experience guarantees that participants will walk away with friendships that will last a lifetime. We should know; our founders and staff are comprised of former participants who, ten years later, remain an incredibly tight-knit community of friends.
