Come join Professor Deadeye and our adventure teams as we go on yet another museum quest. This year, we will be searching for the legendary “Kitab al Kanuz”, also called the Book of Hidden Pearls. This journey will take our teams to mythical lands, ancient ruins, and remote oasis’ while facing tricks, traps, and bad guys. Participants will be tasked with solving riddles, puzzles, and forgotten scripts as they collect the clues that guide our way. This 5-day program focuses on the rise of the Sahara Desert and features problem-solving, teamwork, and historic elements.
