Our summer quests and regularly scheduled programs are not open to five year-olds, as they often have safety issues playing with our Swashers. We offer birthday parties for five-year olds, and can create special programs for your five-year old and their friends, as long as additional parents or other adults are there to assist the Quest Leader with safety.

Although they beg and plead for it, the truth is that most 6-7 year olds just don’t have the endurance to last all day long in our quests. If your child is too young to join our full-day Dragon program, then they can join one of the weeks that we offer a Griffon quest and then attend the Afternoon Games Club until 4:30pm. Furthermore, we can give you a recommendation on getting one of our awesome Quest Leaders to babysit before or after the program.
During each pick up, staff will stay late and wait with the children whose parents have not arrived. There is a ten minute grace period for picking up participants at the end of a program. The grace period begins at the time that the program is officially over. The late pick up fee is for every five minutes or part of five minutes after the grace period. Late pick up, if arranged with 24 hours notice, drops to for every five minutes or /hour. If a parent is more than 20 minutes late, all efforts will be made to contact the parent including calling the emergency numbers provided on the health form. The late pick up fee is for every five minutes or part of five minutes after the grace period. Late pick up, if arranged with 24 hours notice, drops to for every five minutes or /hour.
Yes! Please make note of it on the registration form which Quest Leader inspires your children the most, and we’ll do our best to accommodate it. Note that it is never guaranteed that your child will be placed with the requested leader or friend.

We usually don’t allow younger children to quest with a group of older kids, but an older sibling or friend can quest with a younger group.
Absolutely. If you are curious about what a quest is like, you may join in for an hour or so during the day. Please talk to the Quest Leader and the office about what a good day or time is for the visit.
Pack a backpack for your child with a hat for sun protection, a bag lunch with a snack, at least one filled water bottle (two for Dragon Quests), a light poncho, warm clothes (for Holiday Quests, as we are outside as much as possible even in the winter!). Your child should be ready with sunscreen already applied as our staff is not authorized to apply sunscreen to a child. Hiking boots are recommended and give more traction outdoors, but sneakers are adequate. Sandals and Crocs are not acceptable footwear for this program due to the nature of the hiking trails. Please do not allow your child to bring candy or gum, pocket knives, electronic games, money, or anything of value to camp
Throughout the year we collect a large amount of items that are left behind by campers. We encourage you to write your child’s name or initials on clothing, water bottles, and any items that they might bring to one of our programs. If you believe that one of your child’s belongings may be in the lost and found, please notify our office staff promptly. We keep our found items at the office. RA promises to keep items in the lost and found for at least two weeks, and if there’s a name on the item, we will attempt to contact you about picking it up. After two weeks or several unreturned phone calls, the lost item will be donated to charity.
No, but they are helpful for the experienced Quester. Of the various books we offer, the Adventure Quest Game Book should be the first book to buy, as it is the essential book to play Adventure Quest. It describes all the standard Rules, Races, Paths, Equipment, Pets, and Powers. You can order it here.
We can host a Birthday Party or special event during any weekend you schedule one for. Please click here for birthday party and special event information. In the past we have held longer Adventure Quest and “Power Quest” programs during the weekend, and if you are interested in having Renaissance Adventures run a program for one or several weekends in a row, please give us a call.
Tips are always appreciated by our Quest Leaders, but they are never expected. Our Quest Leaders are paid better than the average camp counselor.
While that’s certainly okay for occasional needs, we recommend that the child stay for the entire day and for the entire week that the quest is happening. Remember, Adventure Quest is an interactive story. Missing a few hours will mean that the Quester is out of the story for some time, missing out on crucial decisions! But then again, we all need to visit the doctor at some reasonable time of the day now and then…
No. They are owned by Artix Entertainment and have absolutely no involvement in our programs, as we don’t have any involvement in their online games.
