How a hero presents themselves in the realm of Sidleterra is important to the story and the hero’s experience. There are many options for how to design, make, or purchase your own costume.
As well, the foam weapons that we permit for use in our adventures are specially sourced and tested to ensure that they meet our safety requirements. Please do not bring a foam weapon to camp that has not been purchased through our company as you will not be permitted to use it.
Here is a video for explaining how to use your foam sword in a safe manner:
Each hero is given the option to use one of our padded Short Swords, or to purchase their own padded weapon through our camp. It is important that campers use only those padded weapons purchased through our retail outlet as these are specially-designed weapons that are uniformly manufactured and have passed our safety inspections.
Our basic Foam Weapon options include:
Short Sword (24″)
Long Sword (40″)
Long Staff (48″)
Costumes for the Wizards & Warriors Camp need not be “authentic” medieval attire. In fact, since you may be crawling through tunnels, jumping over obstacles, or engaging in padded sword play, we encourage our Heroes to think “durable, comfortable, and safe.” Also, since most adventurers are attending for at least two weeks of camp, multiple sets of costumes are necessary due to the high level of activity.
It isn’t necessary to spend a ton of money on specially-made costumes. Keep in mind that Halloween Costumes are almost never durable enough to make it through the rigors of our adventures. So here are some affordable options for filling out your wardrobe using modern clothing:
We also have costumes available for purchase through our Trading Post. You will be given the opportunity to order these with your registration.
