Welcome

Camp Quest is specifically designed for children of Unitarians, atheists, agnostics, freethinkers, humanists, and other like-minded folks. It is a secular summer camp aimed towards critical thinking, skepticism, and open discussion. While campers partake in traditional camp activities, such as field games, swimming, archery, crafts, and campfires, what sets Camp Quest apart from traditional summer camps is our focus on humanist values and ethics. Our unique programming encourages rational inquiry, free speech, and respect.

Our campers are girls and boys ages 8-17, and we offer a Counselor-in-Training Program for 16 and 17 year-olds. All camp counselors are trained volunteers. Camp Quest Minnesota is held during the last half of July at facilities west of the Twin Cities.
