Leadership Summit

What is the Camp Quest Leadership Summit?

Over a weekend, Camp Quest holds an annual summit providing training sessions, roundtable discussions, and opportunities for connecting with other CQ Leaders.

Leadership Summit 2022

The Camp Quest Summit will take place in Denver, Colorado, from November 4 – 6, 2022.  Sessions will take place all day Friday and Saturday, and Sunday morning. Most sessions will be held on Saturday.

Camp Quest’s annual summits are opportunities for volunteers and staff to come together for a weekend of workshops, panels, and fun. The 2020 and 2021 panels were held online due to the pandemic, but we do plan to return to an in-person summit this year.

You can book your room at the Hyatt Place Peña Station now (group room rate: $109)! We’ll share a full schedule closer to the date of the event.

See you in Denver!
