CQNW Planning Retreat Cancelled Due To COVID-19 Concerns

Dear Camp Quest NorthWest Volunteers and Families,

As a camp community, our top priority is the safety of our campers, staff and volunteers. After careful consideration of information about the COVID-19 situation we have made the difficult decision to cancel our volunteer Planning Retreat, which was scheduled to take place March 20-22 at Camp Kirby. We are currently considering options to host a virtual meeting to cover some of the material we had intended to review and develop at the retreat. We will share that information with you once we have a plan in place.

We are proactively preparing to ensure that everyone has a safe experience at camp this summer. At this time, both Camp Quest NorthWest summer camp sessions are scheduled to operate as planned. We recognize that the COVID-19 situation will continue to develop as the summer approaches and our plans are subject to change based on national and regional recommendations and policies. We will make every effort to keep you informed about any significant updates via email, our website and our facebook page.

CQNW 2020 Registration Details

“Hindsight 2020”

Camp Quest NorthWest is very excited to announce the details of our 2020 summer camp sessions, including our camp theme “Hindsight 2020.” Campers will embark on a fantastic journey through space and time where they will meet famous freethinkers, experience historical events, and revisit some favorite activities from past CQNW sessions.

2020 Camp Session Dates

  • Week 1: June 28th to July 4th (Staff: June 27 to July 5th) at Camp Waskowitz
  • Week 2: August 16th to 22nd (Staff: August 15th to 23rd) at Camp Kirby

Camp Quest NorthWest will host two sessions again this summer. It will be our second year at Camp Waskowitz and our ninth year at Camp Kirby. We encourage families to choose whichever camp session works for the schedule and interests, and we look forward to lots of fun at both locations!

Camper Registration Details

Registration will begin Saturday, January 11th at 9:00 AM. Additional details are available on our registration page, or you can bookmark the link directly to Active to register on January 11th. Please be aware that our August session typically fills up very quickly, so if plan to register be sure to set a reminder and register as soon as you can!

Tuition will be set at $700 per camper, which is unchanged from last year, and camperships (camp scholarships) are available for families seeking financial aid. As always, your application timestamp will count whether you submit either the camper registration form or financial aid form.

Volunteer Registration Details

Volunteer registration will also become available on January 11th. We encourage volunteers to register for camp as soon as they know their summer availability. Volunteers can stop by our staff page for details about staff grants and other FAQs or head directly to Active to register on January 11th.

The Planning Retreat is scheduled for March 20th to 22nd at Camp Kirby. You can reserve your spot at the retreat using the same registration link above.

Items Available to Purchase at Registration

We are very excited to be able to include some items for purchase along with your camper and volunteer registration. In addition to extra t-shirts we will have CQNW hoodies and custom 2020 CQNW iron-on patches available to order. All items will be delivered at our summer camp sessions. Remember that every camper and volunteer receives one t-shirt included with their registration, but this is a great way to order extras for the whole family!
