Camp Quest for the Whole Family

Camp Quest is really popular with children, so if you’re like me, you’re jealous you never had a chance to attend one. That’s about to change now that they’re offering the experience to entire families! At least in a couple locations…

Camp Quest Montana will take place July 30th – August 6th, 2011.

Anyone from birth to your grandma is the right age for Camp Quest Montana. Our schedule is structured with activities for children, tweens, and teens. Sometimes, families will participate together. Sometimes, counselors will conduct the activities with the children, leaving the parents free for an adult discussion group or activity. There is also a counselor in training program for camper’s ages 13-17 who want to attend without their parents (you know how it is).

Camp Quest South Carolina will take place October 1st – 2nd, 2011.

Camp Quest is known for the 3 F’s — Fun, Friends, and Freethought. At the family camp, we add a 4th F, and that is, of course, Family! The entire family, from the youngest baby to the oldest grandma and grandpa, is welcome! We will have age-appropriate programs and activities for all ages. This makes the family camp particularly attractive to families with children who are not quite camper-aged (especially envious younger siblings!) or who may be camper-aged but not quite ready for a whole week away from home. Of course, the weekend camp will be lots of fun for camper-aged kids as well.

If you have a chance to go, make it happen. It sounds like it’ll be a great experience!

    If a Hawaii chapter is ever opened up, I’d LOVE to volunteer my time to get it, and keep it, going. I want to be a part of this. This place absolutely needs something like Camp Quest.
    Maybe in a year or two when I’m less busy, I’ll try to get one started.

    Unfortunately, I won’t be back in South Carolina in time to take my family. I would love to have my family attend for the first event, but the timing is off, this year. I look forward to the next event!

    I’ve done a lot of reading about Camp Quest, and they really do encourage you to start a camp in your area. The website says, however, that you need to volunteer at an existing camp before starting your own. I’m not sure if it is mandatory, but it makes good sense.

    @Brennan, I hope you don’t mind, but I just sent you an email also. I’d love to be involved with this here in Washington.

    No worries. We are just starting to get this thing off the ground and can use all the help we can get. I’ll send you an email shortly.
