We have good news and bad news. The good news is that we exceed our goal and sold out in our second year! The bad news is we sold out and can’t accept any more awesome campers. If you would like to be placed on our waiting list, please email your child’s name, birthday, and gender along with your contact information (address, phone number, and email address) to SouthCarolina@campquest.org.

We are excited to announce that registration for our 2013 Family Weekend is now open!
This year, we’re going to do something a little different for our family weekend getaway! Instead of camp, we’re going to head to the Great Wolf Lodge in Charlotte, NC for a weekend of fun, friends, freethought, and family!
Great Wolf Lodge is a resort hotel with an indoor, year-round 80,000 square foot waterpark that’s sure to entertain! With jaw-dropping slides and zero-depth entry and splash zones, there’s something for kids of all ages (grown-ups, too!). Other additional activities include MagiQuest, bowling, and miniature golf, just to name a few.
Camp Quest South Carolina’s Family Weekend offers your family a chance to have a fun-filed mini-vacation in the middle of winter as well as the opportunity to meet other like-minded families. Our 2012 first-year campers made lots of friends and are eager to see them again next summer, but a year is just too long to wait to hang out again! This Family Weekend will help make that wait a little more bearable.
When: February 15-17, 2013 FYI, this is Presidents’ Day weekend, so most kids have the following Monday off, which give you more time to return home and recover!

Mark your calendar! Camp Quest South Carolina’s next Family Weekend will be 2/15-17/2013 at Great Wolf Lodge in Charlotte, NC. Details will be posted very soon, so stay tuned!
Camp Quest South Carolina is very excited that so many groups across the Carolinas have stepped up to the plate and challenged their members to raise funds to send kids to camp. The Central North Carolina Atheists and Humanists group recently raised $550 – enough for a full campership! – and put together a fun contest to select a deserving recipient. Financial contributions from the Secular Humanists of the Lowcountry and the Humanists and Freethinkers of Cape Fear have also made it possible for more kids to get to go to camp.
And now the CSRA Non-Theist Group in Aiken/August and the Freethought Society of the Midlands in Columbia are raising money to send a camper from their groups to camp! If you’d like to support their efforts, you can do so here.
In addition to the local groups raising funds for camperships, Camp Quest South Carolina is having our own fundraiser. We are working hard to make our first year camp a huge success, but we need your help. Please consider making a donation. Every little bit helps!
We still have some spots available so we will continue to accept registrations until Friday, July 6 or until we fill up, whichever comes first. You can register here. Need financial aid? We may be able to help you! Please see the information about camperships in step #2 on the registration page.
It’s Secular Student Alliance Week! Camp Quest South Carolina counselor Todd Stiefel is donating $50,000 toward the $100,000 goal. All donations go toward a very worthy cause, so please consider making a contribution. Also, Camp Quest South Carolina counselor Kelley Freeman is looking for suggestions as to what she can crochet to auction on eBay. Have an idea? Leave it in the comments below.
