Quuest is a Unitarian Universalist summer camp emersion experience for youth from rising 9th grade to 12th grade graduates. This years theme is A Quuest for Faith. The youth will be spending time exploring the meaning of faith, how it manifests, and ways to be faithful as a Unitarian Universalist.
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 Counsel, where youth share statements of faith and insight, through optional off site adventures (e.g. horse riding/hiking), by engaging in worship via daily services, interfaith events, 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.
