I would like to return to Camp Quest because I can express my thoughts without fear of judgement, the activies are very fun, and I made a lot of friends whom I’d like to see again.
Camp Quest has been a great experience that has allowed me to grow so much. I want to come back and continue to grow, but I also want to come back to help others grow.
I can be myself here and I don’t HAVE to fit in because I already do! I won’t go home ever until next year because this is my home now.
That everyone is different but we can all be friends.
To accept other people’s beliefs and ways of thinking.
I learned about evolution.
How to be a leader.
I learned how to skip rocks, catch salamanders, and do really cool things!
That fossils are awesome!
I learned about the freethinkers of the world and other religions.
About DNA, plants, and soil! We also learned about pollinators and flowers and seed balls!
So much. I learned about our universe’s timeline from Gordon and water-wildlife from Becky, sure, and a lot of people’s names, but also about different personalities. I learned now to have fun even when it’s been a bad day. I learned how to keep an open mind to everything, and I learned how to accept losses.
Working on the service project.
White water rafting.
Carnival, dance, sitting in a large circle and talking about religion during movie night (& the awesome counselors).
Friends, high ropes, rock wall, foursquare, Frisbee, lots of stuff.
Oh, that’s hard… There were so many… I’ll have to pick campfires, that’s when the sense of community/family is strongest. I think it’s the energy and emotion in the music, the sense of having fun with others, the way we’re singing together.
