Sort of Like “Camp Quest” for Grownups – Adventures in Humanist Community!

Walkway_03

Edit: I’ve been asked to make clear that the reference to “Camp Quest” in the title of this post was metaphorical – this retreat is sponsored by the American Humanist Association and the American Ethical Union, not Camp Quest.

Humanist Community at Harvard

This is a guest post by Sarah Chandonnet, the Outreach and Development Manager at the Humanist Community at Harvard.
