QUUest is a Unitarian Universalist summer camp emersion experience for youth from rising 9th grade to 12th grade graduates. This year’s theme is Relationships. Campers, counselors and staff will spend time exploring how being in relationship with one's self, others, and the wider world. Understanding relationships is necessary for a healthy spirit and for saving our lifeboat Earth.
At Quuest, youth learn about community, spirituality, justice, equality, and also have a ton of fun! Quuest Camp is based upon basic 4 pillars. After attending the youth will be able to:
- Articulate beliefs grounded in UU theology and values;
- Develop spiritual discipline;
- Engage in social change rooted firmly in faith, love, and trust; AND
- Build personal and religious resilience.
These attributes will take hold through workshops and emersion experiences aimed at exploring a faith centered life, through time for personal reflection and developing spiritual practice, through fun activities like field games, crafts, hikes, swimming, and bonfires, through a Wilderness Council & Council of Elders, where youth share statements of faith and insights, by engaging in worship via daily worships and walking the Labyrinth, and through integrated leadership development training, mentoring and modeling, to mention just a few!
Come change your life forever...for the better!
Quuest is located at the La Foret Camp in the lovely Black Forest National Park area just outside of Colorado Springs featuring scenic views, hiking trails, rustic cabins, lodges, and a historic chapel. La Foret also features high and low ropes courses, a swimming pool, tennis courts, a volleyball pitch, and much, much more.
Campers bring their sleeping bags and pillows to stay in male only and female only cabins. Accommodations will happily be made for folks who identify elsewhere on the gender spectrum. La Foret, who is wonderful at catering to special diets, provides yummy meals.
