How it All Began
Quest Clubs began in 2010 as a spin off program of Frontier Girls. Frontier Girls is a scout like program for girls that offers thousands of possible badges to earn. Founded in 2007 by Kerry Cordy and a group of homeschoolers, by 2010 there were so many boy siblings that wanted to earn Frontier Girls badges that a spin off program was needed. Rather than restrict the program to just boys, the decision was made to create a program that was as flexible as possible so that any group could use it to design a club to suit their own goals and beliefs.
As a result, Quest offers all the same badges and awards as the original Frontier Girls program, but has no set requirements in regards to membership or structure. Some Quest Clubs are all boys, some are all girls and some are co-ed. Some Quest Clubs are faith based while others are secular. Some Quest clubs serve all ages levels while others serve just a single level. It is up to each club to mold the program to suit its own needs.
Over the last 10 years, Quest has evolved and is now used in a wide variety of ways. While the original intention was for scouting style groups, Quest is now also used as supplemental homeschool curriculum, as after school programs, as in class incentives, and even as clubs for senior citizens. Our members use the badge requirements provided to pursue the goal of lifelong learning and to keep education fun and exciting for all ages.
