Camp Quest Smoky Mountains (TN) Sleepaway
Welcome to Camp Quest of the Smoky Mountains! Ten years ago some caring people from the Rationalists of East Tennessee in Knoxville had the vision to establish the second summer camp especially for children of secular parents. For the first five years it was very small, almost family size. Since 2008 it has grown rapidly, but we have been able, so far, to retain that friendly, family atmosphere.
Our camp is held each summer in a small valley, nestled away between mountains in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Our host is theGreat Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont. These wonderful people provide our facilities and make the natural world come alive for visitors throughout the year.
With our wonderful staff of volunteers, we swim in the Little River, hike the mountain trails, talk around the campfire, play games, and learn about science, nature, and philosophy. We leave our friends, old and new, with the dream and expectation of returning next year.
