Wedding Bells are Going to Chime!

This weekend Camp Quest is celebrating not one, but two amazing partnerships! We are so excited to celebrate with two of our board members and two of our volunteers this weekend. Caroline Martin and Dan Smucker are getting married today in Ohio.  Rachael and Tom Quisel are celebrating their commitment ceremony in California tomorrow. Both couples have asked for gifts from friends and family to be made to Camp Quest to celebrate!

Caroline and DanCaroline Martin, a Camp Quest national board member, says:

In 2011, Dan and I met volunteering for Camp Quest Ohio. As our relationship grew, so did our roles at camp. From counselors we grew into roles like Cabin Area Leaders, Camp Director, and Board Chair. We have supported each other through tough decisions, long board calls, and seemingly endless summer days. Camp Quest has shaped who we are; we have become not only partners in life, but in work. The growth and success of Camp Quest is so dear to us. We work throughout the year to create a place where both kids and adults can explore and create in a welcoming, warm environment. In celebration of our partnership, we ask you to help ensure Camp Quest’s future by making a donation in our honor.
