December 2014 Volunteer Update

November Meeting Recap

The Camp Quest NorthWest Board of Directors met on November 22 to discuss Staff Registration, Darwin Day, and the national Camp Quest Leadership Summit. The board also reviewed and adopted a budget for 2015. If you have any questions about the availability of funds please email treasurer@campquestnorthwest.org. If you have requests or suggestions about materials you’d like to have at camp please email quartermaster@campquestnorthwest.org.

Leadership Summit

The Camp Quest Leadership Summit 2015 will be held in Dallas, TX from Friday February 20th to Sunday the 22nd. For more information you can visit the Leadership Summit information page or go here to register. Hotel space is limited and going fast so if you’re interested in attending you should act fast!

Camp Quest NorthWest will be sponsoring travel costs for select volunteers attending the leadership conference. If you are interested in receiving a scholarship for full or partial assistance with travel costs, email board@campquestnorthwest.org with your plans for attending the retreat and how your attendance would help the organization. Requests should be made prior to the December 20th board meeting. You can also apply for a grant from the national organization. More information is available here.

Darwin Day

Seattle Atheists will be hosting their annual Darwin Day event on Saturday February 14th at the 2100 Building in Seattle. CQNW will be on hand to manage the kid’s room which will give interested parents an opportunity to learn a little bit about camp and will give campers and staff a chance to reunite during the year. Get in touch with Chase for more information or if you’d like to volunteer by sending an email to darwinday@campquestnorthwest.org.
