Camp Quest

If your child age 8-17 is not yet going to a summer camp, there is still time to sign up for Camp Quest in some areas of the US.

Camp Quest? Founded in 1996...

Camp Quest (noun): 1. Summer camp beyond belief! 2. A place for fun, friends, and freethought for kids ages 8-17.

I think it's fantastic that many parents have the choice of a non-church summer camp.  That religious mumbo-jumbo will warp your brain if you let it, and the young are especially susceptible. 

Our Mission

Camp Quest provides an educational adventure shaped by fun, friends and freethought, featuring science, natural wonder and humanist values.
Values we teach: integrity, empathy, creativity, critical thinking, and community.

Our Vision

Camp Quest envisions a world in which children grow up exploring, thinking for themselves, connecting with their communities, and acting to make the most of life for themselves and others.

What do kids do at Camp Quest?

Activities vary from year to year and location to location of Camp Quest; however, all of our camps offer a mix of traditional summer camp activities and educational activities related to the Camp Quest mission.  Here is a sampling of some of the kinds of activities we tend to offer.

Would a child who believes in God be comfortable at Camp Quest?


Are campers at Camp Quest required to be atheists?   

Sounds a whole lot better than boot camp, or juvy camp.
