Are campers at Camp Quest required to be atheists?
No. Campers at Camp Quest are encouraged to think for themselves and are not required to hold any particular view. Our emphasis is on critical thought, rather than unquestioned faith.
What options do I have if the dates/location of Camp Quest Oklahoma don’t work for me?
There are other Camp Quests throughout the country, all with similar values and programs. For information about the dates and activities of the other Camp Quests please check out this list.
What ages of children are eligible for Camp Quest?
Children age 8 to 15 are welcome to attend. 16 to 18 year olds are invited to be Counselors-in-Training (CITs) in addition to being campers.
Are there Camperships?
We never want financial concerns to prevent a child from attending Camp Quest Oklahoma. You may apply for financial aid.
What are the daily activities?
Activities include science experiments, debates, hiking, swimming, canoes, camp fires, star gazing, crafts and more.
How many kids generally attend? What are their age brackets? What about boys vs. girl.
In 2012 we had 32 campers, 14 boys and 20 girls. In 2013 we had 50 campers, 23 boys and 27 girls. This year we are accepting 70 campers.
Who are the counselors and how are they chosen?
Counselors are volunteers who apply to work as staff members during our summer camp and other events. Counselors are chosen based on their teaching experience, camp experience, and ability to work with kids.
Do you do criminal background checks on staff?
Yes! We do state and national criminal background checks on all staff (new and returning) every year.
Can I contact some other parents who have registered to come?
