Thank you!

Our fundraiser for Camp Quest is now over, and it was a huge success!  We raised $620, which surpassed our goal of $550.  Thank you to everyone who organized and ran the fundraiser, donated items, and bid on items.  The money has been donated to the Edwin & Helen Kagin Memorial Campership Fund.  (Edwin and Helen Kagin were the co-founders of Camp Quest.)  The Kagin Fund provides free or reduced registration fees at any Camp Quest camp for campers with financial need.

2015 Fundraiser for Camp Quest

RRNA is holding a raffle and an auction to raise money for Camp Quest.  Camp Quest is a secular summer camp that focuses on fun, friends, and free thought for kids ages 8-17.  Last year Camp Quest served over 1,000 campers and their families.   A contribution to Camp Quest is an investment in the future.  By teaching kids essential critical thinking skills and providing them with supportive communities, they are empowering youth to make their own choices and grow to become our future leaders.  To learn more about Camp Quest, please visit their website at

Fundraising Goal

We will be donating all monies raised to the Camp Quest Scholarship Fund.  This fund provides financial assistance to families that need it.  We are hoping to raise at least $550, which is the cost to send one camper to Camp Quest for a week.

Thank you in advance for your support and good luck!
