1. In a separate link below is a Quest schedule. In case you were curious about what we do at the Quest.


2. There is not a lot of room for everyone and their belongings, so I am requesting no suitcases. Please pack in book bags/duffle bags that can squish under seats or wherever we can fit them into the van. 


3. When packing you will need to include: pillow, bedding for twin bed or sleeping bag, towels & toiletries, sneakers which are mandatory for all activities, no yoga pants or tight fitting clothing, no halter tops or short shorts, shorts must be at least fingertip length. You will be given a Quest T-shirt to wear during one of the days. Please pack light as we have limited space and cannot accommodate van space for over packing.  We will be completing activities outdoors, you will need clothing that you can move and bend in. I suggest comfortable loose fitting clothing and maybe a hoodie if it’s chilly.  


4. Travel to Boston plan: Please plan to meet on at the District campgrounds Thursday evening after you had dinner around 7 pm. You will sleep here in one of the dorms until around 3 AM when you will pack the van and leave for Boston. The trip is supposed to take 10 hours however with traffic and stopping for breaks it could be a 12 hour drive. It is important we arrive at ENC no later than 4 pm on Friday May 25th. 


5. Travel home plan: We depart ENC at noon. We will drive until we find a place to stop for a brief lunch break and again for dinner. If it takes 12 hours we may not arrive back to Butler until midnight. We will have teens text or call you when we are closer to Butler so you can plan pick up.
