About Camp Quest: A Summer Camp for Young Skeptics and Humanists
Join AAHS (Atheists, Agnostics, Humanists and Secuarlists/Skeptics) of Santa Monica for a presentation about Camp Quest!
Camp Quest is a national organization whose local affiliates provide week-long summer camp programs to children in secular families. With over a dozen locations throughout the United States, including two in California, they are the only national organization that is focused on the children of the secular movement.
David Diskin, president of Camp Quest West (California), will present an overview of Camp Quest West and their weeklong program that combines traditional outdoor All-American fun with engaging activities that help kids become familiar withskepticism, the scientific method, leadership, STEM/STEAM, and Humanist philosophies.
David will show off photos from prior years, share his experiences, and help our guests understand why programs like Camp Quest are so important to the future of secularism.
This is a free event, open to the public, intended for all ages.
* Parents: Parents and children (8-17) are encouraged to attend this info session, especially returning campers who can share stories!
* Volunteers: Camp Quest West is seeking volunteer counselors for the summer to spend a week with us. Learn more at this event.
