Camp Quest is designed to offer the excitement and challenge of summer camp to children with epilepsy, providing a safe and medically supervised setting which gives parents the confidence to send their children without worry. Camp Quest is a six day, five night resident camp experience at YMCA Camp Marston. An American Camping Association accredited camp, Camp Marston is nestled in the high mountain district of Julian. The children are integrated into the regular YMCA camping program and participate in all the camp activities, led by YMCA staff. The Epilepsy Foundation provides a registered nurse and volunteers to oversee the medical needs of our campers with epilepsy. Campers must be able to handle their own basic needs, function at an independent level and participate in regular camp activities. One-on-one supervision is not available.

Registration fee: $25. Camp costs are funded by Epilepsy Foundation of San Diego donors. Children from San Diego and Imperial Counties in Southern California have priority. Out-of-area applicants will be placed on a waiting list; they will be notified after June 1st if space is still available. Since we have openings for only 15 children applications are accepted on a first come, first served basis. For further information or an application, contact: 619-296-0161
