Camp Quest would not be possible without our many wonderful volunteers and our equally wonderful campers. But camp would also not be possible without the support of the generous people who help fund camp by helping to purchase supplies.
If you have the means, please consider visiting our Amazon Wish List and purchasing some of our needed supplies. There are many options ranging in price and the list will be updated as program needs change.
Camp Quest Texas and, more importantly, our campers THANK YOU!
(all purchased supplies are delivered to our Quartermaster for safekeeping until camp)

Do you want to have a fun-filled week making new friends, enjoying unique experiences, and having a positive impact on young campers?

Camp Quest Texas | Posted on 2019-01-09

Camp Quest Texas is looking for volunteers to help staff our 2019 camp. Volunteers get to enjoy the benefits of being at a summer camp while providing leadership and mentoring to campers. Camp Quest has been a place where campers have found acceptance, friendship, and fun while also providing an environment where they can learn. Volunteers often find their week at camp to be an amazing and impactful experience.

Volunteers fill a variety of needs while at camp. Traditionally, most volunteers are Cabin Counselors. Cabins will have at least two counselors and around 12 campers. In this critical role, counselors have a powerful opportunity to build close relationships with awesome kids, and are responsible for the overall well-being of their campers. In their role, counselors function as a mentor and leader, responsible for everything from getting campers to activities to conflict management and group bonding. While being a cabin counselor can be difficult at times, counselors who return year after year claim Camp Quest to be the most rewarding week of their life.

Camp Quest designs several activities specifically geared toward our goals of promoting science and sharpening critical thinking skills. These programs, along with supervising traditional camp activities, require volunteers to be Program Leaders. These leaders range from subject matter experts designing and leading their own activities to novices who run programs prepared for them.

Historically, many volunteers fulfill dual roles by being a Cabin Counselor during cabin time and meals while also running programs during the day. This leads to a very busy day for our volunteers so we make an effort to make sure everyone has at least one extended break during the day and an opportunity to join volunteer-only activities each night.

Volunteering at Camp Quest can be an incredibly rewarding opportunity which is why many of our volunteers have returned year after year.

This year’s camp runs June 16-22 and volunteers arrive on the 15th to prepare for the campers.

If you would like to apply to be a volunteer or would like additional information, please email

CQTX 2018 Camper Registration Closed

Camp Quest Texas | Posted on 2018-05-16

Camper registration for 2018 is closed. Like always, registrations came in quickly and we filled most camper spots within a day or two. We have done everything within our power to accept as many campers as our staffing could accommodate and are very sorry for everyone that we could not accept this year.

If your child was unable to register this year, please consider registering next year. Registration for 2019 will open early in the first quarter of 2019 and spots usually fill within 48 hours. We recommend joining our mailing list to receive 2019 camp registration details.

Hope to see you next year!

CQTX 2018 Registration Information

Camp Quest Texas | Posted on 2018-02-01

Hello Camp Quest Texas!

We are excited to announce that CQTX 2018 registration is expected to open on February 5th.

We will once again be using Active Camps so you may want to take a minute and make sure you can still access your account to avoid any delays in registering.

The link for registration will be posted here once registration is open.

While we would love to accept every interested camper, space limitations at camp require us to set a maximum number of campers in each age range. As in all previous years, we expect to reach capacity in a very short period of time so be sure to register early!

Pricing will be the same as last year:

$750 “Early Bird Pricing” per camper through Friday, March 16, 2018.

Price increases to $800 March 17th.

$100 first payment required using a major credit card as part of registration (VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and Diners Club).

Scheduled payments are available.

Limited financial aid is available. (If we cannot meet your financial needs with our donations, all of your payment will be refunded.)

The theme for this year’s camp is “Around the World in 7 Days”. Expect lots of great international-themed programs and events!

Camp will once again be held at YMCA Camp Ray Bean at Possum Kingdom Lake.

The dates for camp are June 17-23.

Camp Quest is focused on providing a fun secular camp experience for campers who are 8-17 years old. The Phoenix program is available for 16 and 17 year-olds who wish to take on some additional responsibility at camp. Phoenix campers get to enjoy many of the fun activities as a camper while also learning valuable leadership skills alongside experienced counselors.

Camp Quest would not be possible without the many wonderful volunteers that dedicate their time and energy every year. If you or someone you know would like to come to camp and help provide a wonderful experience and unique learning opportunity for our amazing campers, please email us at There are many opportunities available and we need your help!

Looking forward to another great year at Camp Quest!
