About StemQuest

Our Background

StemQuest Summer Camps were originally founded by a small group of parents, educators, visionaries and do-it-yourself engineers. The mission was and still is to inspire students to reduce time in front of a computer screen and instead utilize technology in a setting that promotes collaborative project-based learning in a positive educational environment. Hence, the company trademark sloganWhere Technology Meets Fresh Air™.

Primary Goal

The primary goal of any StemQuest Camp program is to mentor participants on how to become lifelong learners and instill a strong sense of curiosity, confidence, and teamwork. Due to the exponential growth of the technology industry, kids and teens may now explore, learn and evolve along with the applications of today and the discoveries of tomorrow. StemQuest fosters this new technological landscape with a unique curriculum and well-trained positively motivated instructors.

Flexible Experiences

At StemQuest we create flexible experiences that shift students between the excitement and hands-on activities of our indoor activities and the freedom and exploration of the outdoors. Participants utilize imagination, hand-eye coordination, and STEM applications to conquer challenges and missions – all in a team-oriented environment. Under the umbrella of a friendly competitive and gamified teaching and learning methodology, participants collaborate in a team setting to deconstruct challenges and then solve them.

Core Foundation

The core foundation of our company and the programming we work diligently to develop is built upon creativity, exploration, technology, and fun. Our commitment and passion are derived from the unlimited positive applications of innovative technology.  Throughout all of our kids camps and teen programs, students thrive under the supervision of an adult-led staff committed to the development of the individual and team.


Safety is our #1 priority and our rigorous hiring standards attract the best instructors in the country. At StemQuest Caps we understand that instructors with years of experience working with kids and teens is the key difference between a good experience and a GREAT experience. Our family of instructors embodies the passion and creativity that we strive to inspire in every participant.
