2019

May 13-16

This year, St. Louis River Quest will draw another 1,500 pre-teens from 13 area schools. Since its inception in 1993, River Quest has provided hands-on learning to more than 25,000 students.

Students carry River Quest passports to document their adventures. After the event, they are encouraged to submit essays or poems about their experiences for the program’s annual writing contest. A new St. Louis River Quest Facebook page was launched in 2018 to enable friends and family to sample some of the lessons and see how much fun the kids are having. Students, teachers, chaperones and volunteers are also encouraged to share their experiences using Twitter @stlouisrivquest and #stlouisriverquest.
