Camp Quest Support Center
The Camp Quest Support Center offers essential services to camps to help them provide high-quality camp experiences for children and families who seek secular community, education, and adventure. We support the development of new and established camps by providing program and training resources, fundraising support, and working with camps to ensure network-wide program standards. In addition, we foster volunteer development, and coordinate outreach and support through partnerships with organizations that share our values. The Camp Quest Support Center is based in Staunton, VA at the Staunton Innovation Hub.
Kim Newton joined the Camp Quest team in January 2017. As executive director, Kim facilitates the growth and development of the Camp Quest network alongside our camp leaders across the country. Kim brings over 13 years of experience in non-profit management, development, and education to Camp Quest. She previously served as Director of College Prep Programs at the American Shakespeare Center. She also helped co-found the Staunton Media Alliance, a non-profit which operates a community radio station, WQSV 106.3 FM. While she's been engaged in multiple community and non-profit initiatives, Kim is most excited about what Camp Quest offers to the next generation of change-makers. "The campers are what it's all about! Camp Quest's focus on humanist values and critical thinking are helping our campers prepare to be leaders and problem-solvers in an increasingly complex world. I'm so proud to be part of this organization and to help create inclusive communities for all children." Kim holds an MLitt degree in Shakespeare and Performance from Mary Baldwin University, and a B.A. in Theatre from Hunter College of The City University of New York. Kim lives in Staunton, VA with her husband and daughter.
