    Are you passionate about youth leadership development? Are you committed to encouraging critical thinking in young people? Do you want to create an environment where all are welcome? Then Camp Quest Ohio is a great fit for you! Camp Quest is a summer camp organized around the principles of Secular Humanism - our motto is “Fun, Friends and Freethought”. We’re a week-long, sleepaway summer camp that combines traditional elements like field games, swimming, archery, and hikes, with our special ingredient: scientific and humanistic programming that educates, entertains, and inspires. We are particularly proud of the way that we empower campers through some of our programming that is more socially and developmentally oriented, like assessing personal strengths and examining social scenarios involving issues of difficult communication, managing emotions, mindfulness, and clarifying and pursuing goals. If you believe that camp can be for grown-ups too, we'd love to have you join our all-volunteer staff! Staff Dates (One additional training day for staff than camper dates) June Week: June 16-22 July Week: July 14-20 Questions about volunteering? Check out our webpage and FAQs, or email Angela Wiedl at abwiedl09@gmail.com Hope to see you this summer!
