Questers Half-Season Questers

The Classic Questers have had an adventurous trip!  They met each challenge with optimism and a spirit of unity. It gives me great hope to see a group of co-ed 15 year-olds bond together to ensure each other’s safety, sense of belonging and share their unique gifts and perspectives with one another. Our trip began […]
