Creation of a Nationwide Network
In these years, Camp Quest, Inc. concentrated on expanding into more territories and creating a supportive network for the CQ community. Camp Quest affiliates were started across the US, from Virginia to California, and annual summits were started to encourage volunteer development. Camp Quest affiliates were operating in 18 locations.
Consolidation and New Leadership
The Camp Quest headquarters were reimagined and renamed as the Camp Quest National Support Center. The role of the National Board was clarified, and a new governance system was instituted. Supporting services, including registration software and volunteer training, were provided to the affiliate camps. Camp Quest reached an agreement with the American Camp Association to support the accreditation of affiliates, and five camps achieved this goal.
In 2017, Camp Quest hired its second Executive Director, Kim Newton, who remained in the role until September 2020. Currently, Sarah Bingham Miller serves as Executive Director.
