Laser Quest is an active, outdoor, futuristic LARP (Live Action Role Playing) that integrates our high tech laser tag equipment for "battles" and conflict resolution. This camp is designed to develop self-esteem, team-building, and creative problem solving skills. The campers band together in groups, and under the guidance of an adult Quest Leader they work together in a climate of respect, imagination, empowerment, and excitement to overcome interesting challenges and solve mystifying riddles. An afternoon swim at U Albany's indoor pool will also be available.

The Questers experience the excitement that comes with choosing a mythical archetype and make decisions about how to use their imaginative powers to complete the week long quest. As they continue through the week their characters can gain or lose powers depending on how their decisions play out.
