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 volunteering@campquesttexas.org. There are many opportunities available and we need your help!

Looking forward to another great year at Camp Quest!

2017 Camp Announcement

Newsletters | Posted on 2016-11-15

There have been some exciting new developments at Camp Quest Texas!

  • We’ve been able to get earlier dates for next year’s summer camp: June 18 – 24, 2017
  • Our volunteers plan to have our registration system ready early next year — we’ll let you know when we have a firm date
  • We were able to get a different, larger campground: YMCA Camp Ray Bean at Possum Kingdom Lake west of Ft. Worth

Camp Ray Bean is next door to YMCA Camp Grady Spruce, the site of a couple of our earlier camps, and it’s part of the Grady Spruce family of camps.

This campground has 14 cabins in 7 buildings, and lots of indoor and outdoor space for activities.

This is the Dining Hall. All food is prepared on site, and there will be plenty of options for those with allergies and other dietary needs. This room is also an Activity Center.

Below is the Retreat Center where our volunteer staff will sleep, except for a few Cabin Counselors who stay with the campers in the cabins. If you’d like to be one of those volunteers and work with some of the most awesome kids you’ve ever met, please click on the “Join Our Team” button at the end.

There are two cabins per building with a couple of bunks and storage space upstairs. Each building has a kitchenette.

The campground includes a large multi-purpose athletic field and a crafts shed with a kiln and throwing wheel. Our water activities will include swimming, a blob, and possibly even boat rides to the nearby island for nature studies.

This is another one of the Activity Centers.

We are a 100% volunteer organization. You do not have to attend camp in order to help. We have tasks that can done on your computer from your own home starting right now. If you would like to help us conduct the most awesome camp yet, and you have not already done so, please click here and indicate your interests.

It takes a village to raise a child. Thank you for being a part of our really cool village!

Respectfully,
Don Lewellyn
President, Camp Quest Texas
