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!

Hey, Folks! Additional volunteers are needed to make our July camp session a success!

[The following is a message from the Camp Quest NorthWest Staffing Committee.]

Counselors Andrea, Jami and Becky model morning assembly and roll call at Camp Waskowitz.

Hey, Camp Quest Parents & Guardians!

You know your kid loves Camp Quest – why don’t you try it out?

Camp Quest NorthWest is seeking volunteers to help us run our July session, our first session to be held at Camp Waskowitz! Last June we offered a smaller camp session with fewer campers and volunteers than usual. However, this year we have moved to a new week (and brand new location!) and we are happy to say that more campers have signed up to attend. To accommodate our bigger and better camp, we need more volunteers to keep the energy up and keep up with all those campers!

The duties and benefits of being a camp counselor include:

  • Leading songs and games – around the campfire and in general
  • Participating in camp programs – including science, critical thinking, and philosophy
  • All Camp Events – past years have had cardboard boat building and competitive spaghetti tower construction, plus a talent show, dance, and skit performances
  • Residing with another counselor in a cabin of 8-10 campers
  • A community of adults you’ll want to hang out with outside of camp. Your kids aren’t the only ones leaving camp every year with wonderful memories and new friends!
  • The Great Outdoors! Waskowitz in particular has some beautiful hiking trails and a creek
  • Scheduled, mandatory breaks!

Are you interested? Do you know anyone who might like to join us? Please click here to find out more about volunteering with us, or skip straight to here to sign up for camp! If you have any questions, just email and ask!

Our July camp session runs from June 29th to July 7th. We hope you’ll join us!
