Teen Overnight Camps in Colorado…

Adventure Quest - fun summer camp for kids

…Do Not Compare to Our Immersive & Intensive Teen Programs!

Heroes Academy programs give mature teens a transformative experience within intensive programs. Participants must overcome challenges on their own and with the invaluable help of other participants, including the “Heroes Journey” challenges of internal growth in the areas of accountability, leadership, honor, and planning.

Heroes Academy: Empire

Fantasy live-action roleplaying village for ages 14+

Join Joaquin and other RA Quest Leaders at the Heroes Academy – Empire!

Formidable missions, nighttime ambushes, wayfarer inn merriment, and a monster-laden wilderness to explore! Teens band together in small groups with RA Quest Leaders, while engaging with an immersive village co-created by 20+ costumed adult live-action roleplayers. Camp in rustic cabins or tents and roleplay with rogues, sorcerers, knights, and monstrous foes!

In a well-established fantasy setting, participants play a character using the NERO game system. Costumes are required at all times during the Heroes Academy: Empire weekend event. Price includes food and lodging, but not costuming. Game rules and character creation/advancement is explained the Friday night of the event.

“I absolutely loved the full immersion experience…the realism and intensity of all the events that took place are definitely something that will keep me coming to The Heroes Academy (even if I have to save up on my own to pay for it!!). I don’t think it’s humanly possible to describe how grateful I am to everyone who organizes, leads, and takes part in the program.”

After the event, my daughter glowed with life and enthusiasm. It lit something in her that I have not seen before.
