SummerQuest is a camp unlike any other. Where else can your child spend the morning in a secluded pine grove, eat lunch on a 1920’s garden patio, and then splash and swim on a private beachfront? At the Crane Estate in Ipswich, campers roam over a 2100-acre property across a gorgeous expanse of salt marsh and barrier beach habitat sandwiched between the Atlantic Ocean, Ipswich River, and Essex Bay. Based out of the historical barn at Castle Hill overlooking Fox Creek, camp is within easy walking distance of a gilded age mansion, manicured gardens, and an expansive half-mile lawn! With so much to explore and discover, there’s no wonder why we call SummerQuest the Ultimate Summer Adventure!  

At SummerQuest, our goal is to get children outside, using creativity and curiosity to foster individual development, community, and personal connection to nature while inspiring lifelong confidence in and respect for the environment. Our weekly themes cover a wide range of topics through which our staff of environmental educators will be encouraging curiosity, creativity, exploration, and inquiry in everything we do.  

It’s going to be a great summer in 2020! We can’t wait to see you there.
