We hope to expand the teen classes and activities in the future. Feel free to put any ideas or requests in the suggestion basket.

Children's Quest

Oh, No! There are bunnies everywhere! We need the children of the Kingdom to help capture them and figure out why the camp has been invaded. Come join the SBI (Stonemarche Bunny Inquisition) and join in a series of quests setup to help us find all the bunnies. But be careful, they're sneaky and show up when you least expect them (Because no one expects the Bunny Inquisition!). We need to find all the clues, bring them to the SBI Tower and solve the puzzle.
