About SummerQuest 

Summer Quest is set at the beautiful Crane Estate in Ipswich, MA. The property sprawls over 2,200 acres of dunes, barrier beach, tidepools, pine forests, salt marsh, and grassy fields; offering a varied environment for exploration. As a camp we value environmental education and stewardship and strive to instill these values in the campers, all while having lots of fun! We have a variety of families that attend our camp from the North Shore area and work with many community organizations to serve families through scholarships. Each week at SummerQuest is based around a different “quest” theme, from a week of wizarding to exploring the arts and history of the estate, to being stranded on a deserted island.
