Quest Camps

About Quest

Quest is a flexible, experience-based summer program that encourages middle school students to explore the world around them in a fun, structured and safe environment. Each week your child will embark on exciting adventures that focus on building independence, learning important life skills, connecting with their community and most importantly, having fun! Some of the adventures your kids will experience each week include:

Community Exploration: Whether it’s going to a Twins game, exploring our trail system, or participating in a service learning project, your child will make connections and experience all the exciting people and places that make our community a great place!

Outdoor Adventures: Students will be immersed in many of the great outdoor activities Minnesota has to offer! Adventures include swimming at local beaches, exploring the zoo, reaching new heights at Base Camp (Fort Snelling) and going biking.

Field Trips: Monday-Thursday Quest will take a bus to a water park, amusement park or hotspot. Fridays will be either at the MME pool or a local beach.
