Get Ready For Camp

Terp Questers participate in a variety of activities like playing games, climbing on the rock wall, or heading to the pool to cool off. We utilize mutiple spaces within the Eppley Recreation Center, are often found out and about on-campus, and walk to all of our destinations. Stay in the know and prepare in advance so your camper is ready to take on the day! 

Camp hours: 8:30am - 4:30pm
Morning care: 7:30am - 8:30am
After care: 4:30pm - 6:00pm
