Why? — Our Mission Statement

This is a place where kids can be themselves. We work toward helping youth confront the challenges of living a non-theistic, skeptical, and secular lifestyle in a world dominated by religious belief and pseudoscience. Grounded on the conviction that kids can begin establishing habits of the good and ethical life early on, Camp Inquiry adopts a three-part focus: The arts and sciences, the skeptical perspective, and ethical character development comprise an integrated approach to this “Age of Discovery.” Campers, counselors, and teachers will address key issues around individual identity, forging trusting relationships, establishing a sense of local and global community, and living with respect for the natural world.

Upon arrival, campers will be greeted by a staff of highly trained, dedicated professionals committed to Camp Inquiry, its mission, and the well-being of the campers. Although every staff member is fully dedicated to the well-being of every camper, each camper will be assigned a group leader, someone available 24 hours a day, all week long.
