REGISTRATION BEGINS: CAMP QUEST CHESAPEAKE & NEW ENGLAND

Camp Quest’s mission is to build community, foster wonder at the world around us, encourage the use of reason and compassion, and just plain provide an amazing week for the next generation.  Currently there are 17 camps around the country, as well as in Canada, England, and Switzerland.
