WELCOME!

We are very excited to offer this one week program for adventurous students to spend a week on the Quest campus, and to learn in an ongoing process of exploration and reflection. Sharing our passion for education with secondary school students is 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 Adrienne Dalla-Longa by email or telephone.

We look forward to seeing you on campus in July.
