When and where is Camp Quest Kansas City?

CQKC 2020 is July ??-July ?? at Wildwood Outdoor Learning Center in La Cygne, KS.

Are campers at Camp Quest required to be atheists?

No. Campers at Camp Quest are encouraged to think for themselves and are not required to hold any particular view. We firmly believe that children should not be labeled with worldview labels by adults, and instead should be encouraged to ask questions and explore different worldviews as they grow. We do present atheism and humanism as valid and reasonable options for an ethical and fulfilling life.

Would a child who believes in god be comfortable at Camp Quest?

Yes. Campers at Camp Quest explore different worldviews, and many children have not yet formed their beliefs on the existence of God. Campers who believe in God may get a lot of interested questions from their fellow campers, but the camp environment fosters asking these questions in a spirit of dialogue and mutual respect. Campers who have expressed belief in God have had fun, made friends, and had a great Camp Quest experience.

I don’t want to pay online with a credit card- can I send a check instead?

Our registration system will not allow you to save or submit without paying online.  Please send an email to Registrar@campquestkc.com if you want to pay by check, and we will try to work something out manually.

When and where do I drop off and pick up the campers?

The information for pickup and drop off of your Camper will be provided to you in an email after the registration process is complete.  A comprehensive Parent Handbook will be sent to you about a month before camp.
