This years' event will be held May 16th-19th!

This year’s 2022 St. Louis River Quest will be a flexible, virtual event drawing in another 1,400 pre-teens from 9 area schools. Since its inception in 1993, River Quest has provided hands-on learning to more than 26,000 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. Students, teachers, chaperones and volunteers are also encouraged to share their experiences using the hashtag #stlouisriverquest.

Your quest starts here!
