What can I expect at Quest?
Quest is a 4-week intensive program for young men who want to grow in faith, maturity, and readiness for life. Think of it as the perfect blend of summer camp and boot camp – lots of fun, but plenty of challenges along the way! (Response alarms, mud runs, night hikes – you get the idea.)
What is the daily schedule like?
Here is what a typical day at Quest 2016 looked like: the day starts with personal devotions at 5:30am, followed by PT and room inspections. After breakfast at 8:00, a morning chapel is held, then a class or workshop session runs until lunch at noon. Afternoons are filled with hands-on activities, recreation or additional classes. After supper, everyone pitches in to complete daily chores and special projects with their teams. Most evenings, there is a session, and then the students meet in smaller groups for evening devotions with their group leaders. Lights out is at 9:15. Of course, the schedule will vary from day to day, especially in the case of a hike, a service project, or another special event.
Why do you call adolescence a myth?
Much of the world today believes that in between childhood and adulthood, there’s a period of 5-10 years in a young person’s life during which they begin to exercise the rights that most grown-ups enjoy, without having to take on too many new responsibilities just yet. We think God has something different in mind, and we want young people to understand that “Godly maturity” means your rights and your responsibilities go hand in hand, even if you’re just 14!
