For twenty some years, Guardian Adventures has been creating living adventures, fully immersive worlds complete with characters, costumes, special effects, and actors. Generations of campers have embarked on grand adventures at our summer camps, shaping the magical world of Sidelterra with their own choices and actions. We’ve made the imagination a tangible environment for kids to learn, grow, and experiment with morality. These kinds of adventures have brought us recognition in both the entertainment world as well as the academic as one of the frontrunners of live-action storytelling…

…and the world is catching up.

This uptick in the interest in live-action storytelling and tangible imagination has caused us to shift more of our focus at Guardian Adventures towards better explaining what it is that what we’ve created over the past two decades. Our company recently coined the phrase tactimedia, which we define as an experience that translates from media and touching every sense, from touch to taste, either tangible or imaginary.

If you’re keeping up with geek culture or the forefront of entertainment, you might have heard of one of the biggest tactimedial endeavors to hit America. One of your childhood dreams is coming true. Disney Theme Parks is making a vacation to the Galaxy Far Far Away a reality.

In the limited information released thus far, Disney has called their new Star Wars hotel, a.k.a the Galactic Starcruiser, an “All-Immersive” “Living Adventure” and a totally “Exclusive Experience.” This sounds really up our alley.

Take a look for yourself:

In the last year, we’ve mentioned of how companies in Asia, especially South Korea, have hired us to teach them how to create their own versions of our interactive and immersive worlds.

We’ve also paertnered with Royal Caribbean Cruises hiring our team to design their onboard adventures for young sailors, pirates, and seafaring scallywags alike.

The tactimedial is something we’ve strongly believed in for over twenty years. We’re absolutely thrilled to be seeing other magic makers diving headfirst into the world of live-action storytelling with such ingenuity and gusto. We’ll be keeping an eye out for any new tidbits that are revealed about the adventure. But until the curtain is finally drawn, we wish you many wonderful adventures at our castle…and may the Force be with you (we had to say it).

In case you haven’t noticed, we get really into dark and creepy tales of magical realms, unsuspecting heroes, and terrifying villains. One of our favorites is the tale of Coraline, published in 2002 then released as a major motion picture in 2009. The original book was penned by British author Neil Gaiman, who first began crafting his tale all the way back in 1990. At first glance the story is simply a children’s fairy tale, so why would it take over a decade to compose? The answer: Mr. Gaiman understands the deeper meaning of what a “story” truly is…




There’s always more to the story. Epic tales of heroism aren’t mere entertainment, they are vehicles for some of life’s most important lessons. Courage, compassion, and honor can be discovered when the story becomes real.

That’s where we come in…

Every day, either at The Castle or at Camp, we watch as our young Guardians discover new skills as they explore their way through our interactive stories. Every epic needs a hero and we build heroes with each villain vanquished or obstacle overcome. This is why we do what we do. This is what we believe. This is what we want to share with the world.

Now that you’ve heard our story, it’s time to explore yours. Jump headfirst into an adventure, become the protagonist, and live the legend. Our STEM Summer Camps run through August and there’s plenty of plot left to be told. Sign up today with the form below and see what you can discover.
