Come Explore With Us

Terp Quest is a traditional summer day camp focused on introducing your child to varied recreational and educational experiences in a fun and safe environment.

Terp Quest Summer Day Camp is a recreational camp managed by University Recreation & Wellness, based in the Eppley Recreation Center, open to all rising 1st through rising 7th grade campers.

Camp weeks include a wide variety of activities in top notch facilities with the highest quality staff. No two days at Terp Quest are ever alike, and our campers (& staff) return year after year to try new games & activities, to participate in entertaining & educational encounters, and to see the University of Maryland campus in a whole new light.

Every week, campers participate in open swim, active and passive games, arts and crafts, climbing, and more. Every Friday we will host a special guest (i.e. magician) or take an on-campus field trip (i.e. bowling alley). 

Join us in trying new things daily and exploring the University of Maryland campus all summer long
