Sometimes, the best gifts are ones that you can’t wrap, you can only experience! And what better way to share joy and wonder than helping kids’ dreams come to life with Majestic Adventures?! Majestic Adventures is a local organization with youth programs that create “worlds as large as your child’s imagination.”
The team at Majestic Adventures values creativity, authenticity, responsible empowerment, and self-expression. Heart-centered live-action roleplaying games support kids as they “succeed as a whole person” and have a whole lot of fun.
Experiential education and play go hand-in-hand at Majestic Adventures. Kids have fun while telling stories, exploring new areas, (re)discovering their sense of wonder, and connecting with friends. “Storytelling is not a lost art! In Adventure Quest, the children become the heroes of an interactive story. By acting out their characters, they bring the story to life and their actions change its outcome.”
The programs also promote imagination, diversity, experiential learning. and responsible empowerment. “Children who love Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Frozen, Minecraft, and other popular fantasy and sci-fi worlds love our programs because they can become a wizard, a knight, a princess, a shapeshifter, a jedi, or anything they’re excited about, and become the heroes of an adventure like the ones they read about and watch.”
