Camp Quest Campership For Military Families Sponsored by MAAF

Camp Quest is proud to announce a partnership with the Military Association of Atheists & Freethinkers (MAAF) to offer a full campership to a child of a military member or veteran. Camp Quest is a national network of secular summer camps with locations in 13 states. Camp Quest provides an educational adventure shaped by fun, friends, and freethought featuring science, natural wonder, and humanist values.

The Military Association of Atheists & Freethinkers (MAAF) supports atheists in foxholes, their families, and veterans. This community is worldwide, wherever the military may be. MAAF strengthens the larger secular community by providing a military backbone and voice both internally and externally. Programs include care packages to deployed service members and programs during basic military training to give young men and women alternatives to Sunday church services. This includes the largest regular humanist gathering of well over 1000 per week at Air Force Basic Training.

Now MAAF is offering a campership to a child of military member or veteran to attend Camp Quest. This new program helps to support veterans and strengthen the secular community through the invaluable family services Camp Quest provides.

MAAF has pledged one full campership for a child of a military member or veteran to attend any one of participating Camp Quest affiliate locations in 2019. Please note that not all Camp Quest affiliates are participating in the MAAF campership in 2019 due to the timing of our registration season.
