> Geek medieval fantasy-based adventure…even an island with hidden treasure!  

But do not despair if geek is not your thingTHERE IS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE!

Swimming, volleyball, basketball, paintball, hiking, canoeing, fishing…family games of all types…and so so much more non-geek stuff too!

…but, YES, you will be immersed in a nation-wide effort to GATHER on Lamoka Lake once a year to create a MEDIEVAL VILLAGE, Quest together, RPG, and play board games…

24/7 gaming and immersion. We have the entire camp to ourselves every year! Join us for a day or stay for an unforgettable week! This unique national convention is one for the scrapbooks!

> GEACF events are intentional about nurturing a welcoming, judgment-free, safe, and family-friendly environment that is mutually considerate of all people.

24/7 Board Gaming

Advance Board Game Planning:  Schedule and register board games and RPG’s through our TableTop link. COMING SOON!

Grab a pickup game at any time! Tables will be available 24 hours a day, all week long.

"Live" Questing & Adventure

“LIVE” ADVENTURE QUESTING BADGE from $100+

Level up, get new quest items, and more skilled and powerful every year!  Join us in creating your own MEDIEVAL WORLD!

Your fantasy adventure continues for a full week year-over-year with the same or different characters!  

I want to give you enough information to get you excited without spoiling anything! So, please read on, there are no spoilers here…only bait for your imagination!

We invite you to join our story, and quest with us for a week at your own pace. The story-line does not push you, rather, we guide the story so that it fits us perfectly. Think of running a quest timeline in EQ2…  When its time for a hot pocket, it is!

Its all about what YOU aspire for your character to do and to become…

The story-line...

 

The Story-line is being written by myself, family, and friends.

This annual week-long event will be heavily influenced by:

The movie, “The Princess Bride”;

Everquest II, a multi-player interactive online D&D type game;

Netflix series, “Shannara”;

The book “Mage-Guard of Hamor”, second in a duology, by Mr. L.E. Modesitt Jr.,

…and a few other favorites that fit within the GEACF rule-set.

GUILD CABINS are perfect for long games and a great spot to store miniatures! Warhammer 40K, Twilight Imperium, Warmahordes, or perhaps you want your own private cabin for Dungeons & Dragons?

GUILD CABINS & Camping, Hotels

$100/person/night

GUILD CABINS are still available for this coming June 8-14th, 2020!

Guild Cabins include electric and heat.

LOCKABLE Guild cabins are perfect for gaming. Lock it and go to the bonfire! No worry, no muss, no fuss. 

Lending Library

Choose from our extensive library of free-to-play board games and/or bring your own! There will be a table designated for shared community board games for those who wish to share-and-share-alike with the community at large.
 
> This is a favorite part for some of us, but please participate in community sharing at your own comfort level. We will gladly help you find replacements, however you accept responsibility for lost pieces.

Great Escape on the Lake 2020

"The Most Adventurous Experience Ever"

Just over 20 years ago Jen and I lost a friend and colleague to suicide. It still feels like yesterday. I received one final thoughtful love-filled hand-written letter. I have it to this very day. Life has a way of marking us. Life is beautiful. Let’s adventure together in genuine organic community.
