RENEW YOUR QUEST 2014

We are very pleased to welcome you to our third annual “Renew Your Quest” adult summer program.  We are excited to offer this one-week program for adults who share our belief that education is an ongoing process of exploration and reflection.  After hearing so many visitors, parents, and grandparents of our students (and faculty!) wistfully say they wish we had been here when they were undergraduates, we realized that a summer program for adults would be a wonderful way to expand participation in Quest’s unique community of learners.

 

Below you will find a tentative schedule for the week, showing some of the options you will have during your stay in Squamish, as well as some information about transportation to the campus and logistical information about your stay.  If you have any questions about the program, completing the forms attached, or logistics, feel free to contact us at

summer.programs@questu.ca or 604.898.8039.
