A Taste of Quest

This one-week trip to Yosemite is an ideal introduction to our Quest Adventure Trips


Entering Grades 6th – 7th | Dates: July 28 – August 2, 2024

A Taste of Quest offers a dose of true adventure in Yosemite National Park. This one week Quest is perfect for anyone who has never been to Camp Tawonga before or who wants to try something new after experiencing summer at Camp.

Campers will spend the entire trip in glorious Yosemite, backpacking, hiking, relaxing at the campground and bonding with fellow Questers (see itinerary below).

A Taste of Quest participants will spend three days and two nights backpacking in Yosemite – a life-changing opportunity to immerse in nature and bond with fellow Questers. The hike is typically four to six miles each way, and our talented and highly trained wilderness staff make sure all participants have a safe and enjoyable experience.
