"What better place than The Crane Estate to bring out our kids' adventurous spirits and lay down some lasting impressions of what it means to be happy? Every day the kids spend with you is like gold to them." – Heidi Goodwin, Camper Mother

Registration opens February 1 for Members and February 8 for all. View the Camp Brochure >>

Studies show that children who spend time in nature and develop a good rapport with the great outdoors are healthier, happier kids. At SummerQuest, we strive to exercise children’s imaginations as they explore one of nature’s magnificent playgrounds.

It’s hard to declare one centerpiece to this magnificent 2,200 acre property. Is it the 1928 “castle” built by a Chicago industrialist as a summer home for his family? Or the four miles of splendid beachfront? The camping pine grove or trails in the vastly changing dune ecosystem? Could it be Choate Island, gem of the Crane Wildlife Refuge? Perhaps it is your camper’s beloved tidepools at the mouth of the Ipswich and Parker Rivers.

SummerQuest’s committed team of outdoor educators are excited to offer a thrilling array of adventurous, confidence-building Quests this season. Memories will be made with new knowledge sought, skills practiced, and friendships forged. While having fun is “fun”damental, our dedication to place-based, hands-on learning is tucked into each quest. Your child will be encouraged to explore the world around us, as well as our place in it.

The quest is just beginning…join us!
