Heroic Youth Summit
What is Summit:
Summit is a two-day medieval simulation-style day camp for 8-12 year-olds. Led by the trained Youth Leaders of Hero Quest and staffed by Adult Volunteers, Summit allows children to become Knights and Maidens in the medieval nations of Christathel (for girls) and Terra Libre (for boys), where they learn to use their unique gifts, talents, and abilities to solve problems together as they face adversity from the villains of the Shadowlands and Geldt. The event culminates in an epic Final Battle (with foam swords and arrows), followed by a ceremonial celebration. Summit participants do not need to be enrolled in our Crowned with Virtue or Mastering Knighthood clubs to participate. As our event is completely staffed by volunteers, we ask that each attendee provide at least one adult volunteer to help with the event, either in the important Final Battle as a villain, or before or throughout the event as a staff volunteer. To find out more see our Volunteer page or our Join the Final Battle page.
