Pingback: Early-Bird Registration Begins! | Camp Quest NorthWest
I was really hoping to send my daughter to CQNW (she attended CQW before), but the dates are too late for her to attend. School activities (band, sports, etc) on Aug. 15, and if she doesn’t attend band camp that week, she can’t do marching band.
I know that since you got a relatively late start (compared to other, established camps) you had to take what dates are available, but I recommend earlier dates in the future so that high school age campers can attend.
Good luck with camp.
I definitely agree, an earlier camp is better. That is going to be one of our primary goals for the 2013 camp season.
Thanks for the encouragement, and I hope your daughter has a blast at band camp. I was a band geek all the way through high school and college and loved every minute of it!
Can you post more information about the camp? Ages, activities, camping conditions, what the cost includes. Thanks, gt
Cost includes the full week overnight camp (August 15-21, 2012), a t-shirt, and a group photo. Camper ages are 8-15 years, with 16- to 17-year-olds acting the in the capacity of “Counselors in Training.” This year’s camp is at Camp Kirby on Samish Island. Feel free to check out their website, or ask here if you have further questions about the camp location. The full program is still not complete, but activities include traditional camp activities like swimming, archery, wall climbing, hiking, stories around the campfire, canoeing/kayaking, a variety of sports, arts and crafts, etc. We also include a lot of fun Freethougt activities like Socrates Cafe, debates, attempting to disprove the existence of an invisible diety, optical illusions, and more.
Hope that helps!
I would love to register my son, but we currently do not have the funds. Could I apply for a grant? If so, how would I do that? Thanks!
Registered! Looking forward to it! Erm, I mean, my kid is….
Man, I really want to go to this camp but I’m a couple years too old. Are there any counselors positions available for older kids who have never been to the camp?
Yes, there are usually positions available. We will post the staff application link on January 1, 2013. Be sure to join the volunteer list (click on the “Get Involved!” link above) where we will post reminders and updates as we get closer.
I just read about this camp on Yahoo and I HAVE to find a way to send my oldest daughter! She has been teased by classmates who tell her that she is going to be tortured in hell. My poor girl has resorted to lying and pretending to believe in god to be accepted. We live in Az, so tuition + airfare would be near impossible for us but it warms my heart to know that there is a camp like this!
Good news! There is a Camp Quest starting up in Arizona. Their camp dates are June 16-22, 2013. Check out Camp Quest for more information. I hope that helps
Would love to see a family camp weekend! Nice job getting this momentum!
I would like to register my son George to a sport camp.
I am elated to have found this camp. My atheist kid would really benefit from meeting some other likeminded children, not to mention the critical thinking skills and skepticism that a camp like this can reinforce. Cannot WAIT until my daughter is old enough. She turns 7 this August so maybe next year.
Are there any types of grants or scholarships offered? We have two children and the cost is a bit much for our pocket book. Before we hit up family members for assistance we would like to see if there are any kind of essays or “projects” our children can do to earn tuition assistance.
Yes we do! Scroll back up to the top of this page and look for the “Apply for a campership” link.
