PaddleQuest is a unique competition set in a world of fantasy held since 2002 in Stevens Point, WI. Paddle from place-to-place meeting characters, solving puzzles and completing challenges. PQ is run by volunteers called heroes that not only run the games but also act out a storyline that is directed each year by the actions of the participants. Our mission: Celebrate our local waterway in the spirit of stewardship and educate participants on the importance of clean waterways and overall reduction in trash.
