Art CampJune 4 - 8

Everyone grows up with a love to create something. Whether we are using our imagination, or being inspired by something we see, there is just something special when we make art. This camp embraces the vastness of what it means to create something and celebrate creativity. Sorry, this camp is for kids only.

With over 640 acres to find inspiration from there is no shortage of ideas and fun to be had. We also throw in some of our many other fun activities to change it up and use different parts of our brain, or to give it a rest and have mindless fun. We wouldn't dare miss out on Wacky Wednesday, this is camp after all.

Conservation CampJune 12 -14

Kids Quest is working together with the Boone County Conservation District to put on Conservation Camp. You will get to explore our forests and streams, discover plants and animals both big and small, and get in touch with your wild side!

We offer diverse activities, nature hikes, fishing, crafts, and even ziplining - all with the goal of building outdoor leadership skills and connecting with the great outdoors.

The Potter's Ranch Kids Quest Scholarship program provides 30 kids with the oportunity to experience this day camp, and Boone County Conservation District has also sponsored 30 kids with minimal cost to the camper. This camp has a low, limited availability.

Basic Horse CampJune 25 - 29

This camp is for anyone that loves animals and would like to learn more about horsemanship. With plenty of one-on-one time with your horse, proper mounting, technique, grooming, and even painting your horse. There is a lot to love about this program, including your horse, that even if you haven't been around horses this is the perfect entry into the world of horsemanship.

It all starts with a good string of horses, good facilities and systematic instruction. We have all our horses on property throughout the year, and all are trained in our program. This enables us to maintain a good balance of mounts suitable for the needs of beginning, intermediate and advanced level riders. Facilities include an indoor and outdoor arena, fields equipped for intermediate to advanced instruction, our unique sensory trail, and many other beautiful trails.

Camp InfinityJuly 4-21

Kids Quest has again partnered with Camp Infinity to have their overnight STEM camp at Potter's Ranch using our staff and activities for our part. Inquisitive students in grades 7-12 love our Overnight Camps with our STEM & biblical apologetic activities! During these camps, campers will see how science & technology integrate with a creation apologetics worldview, preparing them to explain and defend their faith and succeed in their future STEM education and career.

This is our premier camp for impacting young people with the whats of STEM and the whys of biblical apologetics . Each summer our program team creates a brand new exciting STEM & apologetics program. This allows our summer team to expose campers to as much STEM as possible. This enables students before they graduate from high school to make a choice of what they want to study in college.

  • Overnight Family Camp: July 4-7
  • Overnight Youth Camp: July 9-14

Adventure CampJuly 9 - 13

Adventure can take on many forms, and at Kids Quest you will experience fun and exciting things but always staying safe and age appropriate. Our zipline is so safe a blind person did it twice, and everyone loves the thrill of soaring through the air.

Each day is filled with numerous activities, sports, crafts, and using nature to learn, discover and journey through. We use character building to grow and strengthen self-condifence and leadership skills. All while keeping things fun, and sometimes even wacky. A little Wacky Wednesday is always a memorable one.

Join us on a quest for adventure!

Advanced Horse CampJuly 16 - 20

Don't be intimidated of the word Advanced as our Horsemanship Program is adaptable to develop not only your riding skills, but your overall equine knowledge for even people who just went through our Basic Horse Camp. Our students are able to become more confident in their abilities and will have the skills to ride and handle a wider variety of horses.

Our patient instructors and wonderful camp horses will help you to achieve your personal riding goals in a safe and fun environment. With arena lessons, trail rides, and barn one-on-one our lessons are given in both a group and private setting for riders as we adapt to the skillset of the students on hand so everyone is growing and enjoying their experience.

Archery CampJuly 23 - 27

We use the highly rated His Pins Archery program to offer safe and fun archery instruction. Each archery lesson is paired with a short, foundational biblical story or lesson. The lessons are written in a non-denominational, Christ centered manner and most contain references to archery or the archery equipment being used for impactful, hands-on learning.

There are several ranges with various degrees of difficulty and distance to help advance your skillset, improving your shot in our unique 3D Target Trail, and still enjoying the other aspects of our 640 acre wilderness retreat.
