What is the Quest Program?
Quest is an educational incentive program for lifelong learning that uses badges and awards to encourage kids and adults of all ages to take their education to the next level by delving deeper into subjects they are already interested in and exploring new ideas and experiences. Written by home schoolers, this program seeks to show kids and adults that everything is fun and educational. Our badges are similar to those used in scouting programs, requiring a certain level of mastery in a subject, but still offering a choice of options as to which activities to complete.
There are currently more than 1200 individual badges you may earn with more released every month. If you want a badge that is not ready yet, or maybe isn’t even on our list, all you have to do is email us and we will add it to our wish list, or you may give us a hand and help us write them as well. In addition to our badges, we also offer a variety of higher awards based on themes such as community service, character, patriotism, and leadership.
Quest was designed to be as flexible as possible. It can be used by individual families, with a group of friends, in a club setting, in the classroom, or as an after school program. Unlike formal scouting programs, there are no mandatory meetings, promises, or uniform, and we have no religious affiliation. You simply adapt the program to meet the needs and goals of your family or group using our materials to create a program that fits your needs.
Quest can also be used to supplement current scouting programs by adding additional badges and awards for your members. While our badges and awards may not be worn on official scout uniforms, they can be displayed on either a Quest uniform of your own design, or on tote bags, backpacks, jackets, shadow boxes, etc.
