We can’t do this alone! We need your help. Camp Quest West happens because of volunteers — people who are passionate about science, children, and the great outdoors — with a little extra time to spare. Some of our volunteers come to camp as camp staff. Others volunteer behind the scenes during the year. Believe it or not – there are lots of things you can do for camp without even leaving home!

While these positions don’t come with pay, there are benefits. You get to work with some of the coolest people on the planet and take your interpersonal leadership skills to the next level. Many of our alumni staff have used us as a reference when applying for school or jobs. What are you waiting for?

Volunteer at Summer Camp

The purpose of Camp Quest West is to provide children of those with a naturalistic worldview a residential summer camp dedicated to improving the human condition through rational inquiry, critical and creative thinking, scientific method, self-respect, ethics, competency, democracy, free speech, and the separation of religion from government. Camp Quest West does not discriminate based on ethnicity, gender or other protected category – we just want adults who can help kids learn how to think for themselves. All camp staff must be 18 years of age or older.

Humanist Values! Questioning Everything! Learning about the world!
