About Camp Quest West

Our Mission: Camp Quest provides an educational adventure shaped by fun, friends and freethought, featuring science, natural wonder and humanist values.

Our 2015 sessions are one-week long outdoor residential camp experiences for campers ages 8-17. Check out our leadership program for campers 15+

Values we teach: integrity, empathy, creativity, critical thinking, and community.

Our Vision

Camp Quest envisions a world in which children grow up exploring, thinking for themselves, connecting with their communities, and acting to make the most of life for themselves and others.

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!

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