About Camp Quest West

Camp Quest is designed for children, ages 8-17, from non-religious families including atheists, humanists, agnostics, freethinkers and others with a secular world view.

We blend world-class science and critical thinking interactive activities with a traditional all-American outdoor camp experience. It's the scientific method paired with campfires and s'mores.

Along the way we build community, letting children know that the secular community has something special to offer the world, role models to emulate, and a Humanist philosophy of respect and empathy.

Camp Quest West is the California affiliate of Camp Quest, Inc.

Fun. Friends. Freethought.
