Monday, March 12, 2018

Quest is Silverdale Bible Camp that takes place at Silverdale’s Bonny Oaks Campus, 7236 Bonny Oaks Dr. in Chattanooga, June 18-21 from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. each day for kids who have completed kindergarten through fifth grade.

This year’s Quest Camp theme is "It’s Your Move."  At Quest, kids will get to choose from a range of activity tracks such as soccer, art, music, drama and more. Kids will also have daily snacks, worship time, Bible study and lots of fun.

"Quest Camp will be an explosively fun, epic experience kids will talk about all year long – and remember for a lifetime," officials said.

  "At Quest, kids will learn to answer Jesus’ most important question, 'Who do you say that I am?'  Each day they will learn about the life of a kid in the Bible and be challenged to make a move to accept a truth about who the Bible says Jesus is.

"There is no charge for Quest, but if you want a t-shirt, you must purchase it for $10 when you register."
Register for free at "Be sure you read the track descriptions before you register," officials said.
