CQNW’s Second Summer a Success!

Campers brainstorm egg craft construction

Camp Quest Northwest held its second camp session this August to great success! Sixty five campers and around 30 staff members participated in our second week-long overnight session August 11-17.

A rainy afternoon didn’t even dissuade campers from capture the flag or splashing in Bellingham Bay!

Repeat activities from last year included an all-camp egg drop challenge, hominid skulls, and Socrates cafe.  New to campers this year were fire building, owl pellet dissection, and marine biology.   Campers shot arrows at the archery range, recorded radio interviews, performed creative skits, and worked to unravel psychic predictions.  Bumps and bruises were treated by our expert medical staff (Tang and gummy bears didn’t hurt!).  We explored mechanisms of evolution through our daily natural selection game, and participated in traditional campfire singalongs.

Keep an eye out for photos on the Camp Quest Northwest Facebook feed, and don’t forget to join our CQNW Volunteers Meetup group to keep abreast of announcements and events.  Counselors and leadership staff are already planning for next summer!  Many thanks goes out to these fine folks, our inspiring campers, and wonderful parents.  See you back on Samish Island in 2014!
