SummerQuest is a camp unlike any other.
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, the 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.
