A Quest for the Medieval

Dragons, kings, castles, and queens! Embark on a medieval adventure of learning and creativity through engaging lessons, snacks and games. Your 1st-6th grade campers will experience what life may have been like in the Middle Ages as a serf, knight, or royal. After viewing art forms like tapestry, metal working, calligraphy, and stained glass, campers will explore creating their own manuscripts, sculpture, coat of arms, and more!

Medieval Artisans NEW for 2024!
