Camp Quest is a national organization whose local affiliates provide week-long summer camp programs to children in secular families. With over a dozen locations throughout the United States, including two in California, they are the only national organization that is focused on the children of the secular movement.
David Diskin, president of Camp Quest West (California), will present an overview of Camp Quest West and their weeklong program that combines traditional outdoor All-American fun with engaging activities that help kids become familiar with skepticism, the scientific method, leadership, STEM/STEAM, and Humanist philosophies. David will show how programs like Camp Quest are so important to the future of secularism.
* Parents: Parents and children (8-17) are encouraged to attend this info session, especially returning campers who can share stories!
* Volunteers: Camp Quest West is seeking volunteer counselors for the summer to spend a week with us. Learn more at this event.
* Donors: Show your support with a tax-deductible donation that will help send a child to camp through a “Campership” awarded to low-income families.
