Synopsis Of 2024 Mystery
Trefoil Academy of Magery and Sorcery, known for its strong community bonds among the seven noble houses, faces a dire threat from a curse that has erased three houses' existence. The curse, discovered by students last year, intensifies with time and is now eroding the remaining four houses. It is up to you, your friends, and fellow housemates to unravel the curse, discover its origins, and your vanished peers and faculty. Time is running out, and the future of magic hinges on your courage and resourcefulness in this epic quest to reclaim the academy's identity and restore fractured bonds. Will you answer the call? (To read the full version, please visit here.)


  • *Due to the length of time, it is strongly recommended that individuals have prior experience spending the night away from one's home and a relative's home for this particular camp. If this will be your camper's first time away from home, please talk to the director first before enrolling. We want to set your camper up for success.

  • No day tripping is allowed. Campers will be living on site for the duration of the experience. 

  • Guardians are responsible for their camper's transportation to and from camp.

  • Campers will need to hold a current GS membership at the time of camp in order to attend. This is for insurance reasons.

  • Camp Specific Website (Post Enrollment Forms/Additional Info & Resources). We request that you please return your post enrollment surveys as soon as possible and strongly recommend that you join the remind group. Your camper's particular adventure is customized based on their survey responses, and the adventure starts before campers even arrive.
