2016 Campership Sponsors

Camp Quest Texas | Posted on 2016-05-02

We always have a tremendous financial need here at Camp Quest Texas, to meet the needs of families who have significant financial disadvantages. Without sponsored camperships, these families would not otherwise be able to send their kids to camp.

For 2016, we would like to recognize the following organizations who have sponsored camperships:

Camp Quest Texas works hard throughout the year to make their Summer Camp a fun and educational experience, allowing campers to grow. They host philosophy discussions (like Socrates Café) where they encourage campers to continuously ask while formulating their own opinions. It’s a Summer Camp that teaches campers how to think, not what to think.

Counselors and other volunteers work hands-on with campers in conducting science experiments, fostering language development, and cultivating a zeal for natural discovery. By encouraging campers to examine and question the natural world around them, they aim to build upon their knowledge and equip them with critical thinking skills that will be applicable long after camp ends.

Of course, the primary goal of Camp Quest Texas is to provide campers with a haven away from home where they can find new and old friends. They also make fun a high priority, with swimming, hiking, races, and games all being part of the Summer Camp experience.

While Camp Quest Texas prepares for this year’s Summer Camp, they are also receiving many pleas for financial assistance from deserving families. Many come from families who live in remote rural communities, where the only contact with other freethinking kids would come from their Summer Camp. Although they try to accomodate as many requests as possible, the need is too great, and their funding is limited.

This is where you come in. By donating on my behalf to Camp Quest Texas, you will help provide an opportunity for a camper to experience a week without fear of religious judgment, without the social isolation, and without the stigma of being a nonbeliever in the Bible Belt. As one mother put it, when she came to Camp Quest Texas, “my daughter felt like she could breathe for the first time.”

Thanks for your support!
