Quest Clubs are scouting style clubs run by Curiosity Untamed and are a great alternative to traditional scouting programs. They offer the structure and friendship of a scouting program, but include thousands of badges, a wide variety of higher awards, and the flexibility to design the club to fit the needs of your group.
If you are ready to start your own Quest club, please read through the FAQs below and how to start a club before continuing. If you have any questions, just email firstname.lastname@example.org
No. Curiosity Untamed sells membership subscriptions to the website for the purpose of providing youth education materials. Each Quest Club is independently owned and operated by individuals or organizations that have purchased a Quest Club membership to the Curiosity Untamed website. Each club is an autonomous body operated and governed by a single individual, local non- profit organization, church, school, or business. These groups have purchased a license to use the Quest Clubs name, logo, and materials as part of their youth programming.
Not necessarily. Participants may attend club meetings, but without a membership of their own, they will not have access to badge requirements for resources. If they are only earning badges at club meetings they do not need a personal membership, but if they wish to work on badges outside of meeting times, they will need to purchase a membership. We do not allow sharing of usernames nor do we allow our materials to be printed and distributed.
Yes, you may transfer your club membership to any other person or entity of your choice as long as you put it in writing and we receive a membership agreement form signed by the new owner.
Quest is available for all ages 3 years and up. Badges are designed for preschoolers through adults with requirements getting more difficult as you age.
No. Quest Clubs do not have official uniforms, but if your club would like to design a uniform, we offer vests in up to 17 different colors from youth small all the way up to adult 5X. We also have suggestions as to how to arrange badges and awards on your vests, but they are just suggestions. You may design any type of uniform you wish, or none at all.
No. Our badges are 1.25″ button style pins or magnets. No sewing required.
Upon completion of badge requirements, you may either use the free printable certificates located in the Resource section or purchase physical badges in the form of pins or magnets through our store.
If your child earns badges during club meetings, the club leader will decide when requirements have been completed to their satisfaction. Parents sign off on any badge requirements completed at home.
Yes! Adult clubs are common and a great way to stay active and continue learning while making friends and staying social.
Badges and awards can be displayed on tote bags, backpacks, jackets, bulletin boards, shadow boxes, or any other method you choose.
Yes. We only ask that you give us permission to share your badge requirements and add them to our program. You may also design your own badge pins by sending us .jpg format graphics. Just keep in mind that our badges are only 1″ in diameter and details get lost easily when graphics are shrunk down that small.
Yes. You may charge dues to your members to help cover the cost of supplies, badges, field trips, etc. You may not profit from dues charged and all monies collected MUST be used for club activities.
No. All fundraising is done at the club level. You may do as much or as little fundraising as you wish and the club keeps 100% of all money earned.
Familiarize yourself with the Quest program and the Curiosity Untamed website. Most of the information you will need is in the public areas of the website, but if you have any additional questions, just email Kerry Cordy at email@example.com
Each Quest Club is independently owned and operated. Unlike other programs, Quest Clubs is not an organization that you join. Curiosity Untamed LLC simply sells membership subscriptions to our website, similar to purchasing curriculum, where you will find all of our programming materials and a license to use
the Quest Clubs name and logo in your youth programming. Most clubs are owned and operated by a local non-profit such as a church, school, veterans’ organization, etc. as part of their youth programming. Having your club operated by a non-profit will provide you with liability insurance, financial oversight, a place to meet, and non-profit status which helps with fundraising. Brainstorm organizations in your community that you think would be a good fit with the Quest program. Examples might include:
A printable sample proposal for approaching charters is below and brochures and other materials are available upon request to help in making presentations to potential charter organizations.
Brochures are available upon request to help in making presentations to potential charter organizations. While finding a charter organization is preferable, independent clubs run out of private homes are also allowed, but be aware that you do so at your own risk. Talk to your insurance agent about what your homeowners policy will and won’t cover.
Once you find a charter organization, or feel comfortable operating a club individually, purchase a Quest Club Membership from the website. If you have already found an organization to run your club, have a legal representative of the organization purchase the membership and agree to the Terms and Conditions.
If you have not yet found an organization to charter you, you can purchase the Club Membership yourself and simply transfer it to an organization once you find one. If you are not yet ready to start a club, but want to get started as a family, you can purchase a family membership to work on badges at home.
Once a Club Membership has been purchased, you will have complete access to all levels of our website including the Quest Club Members Area and Quest Club Leaders page. Here you will find our Leader Handbook, all necessary forms for running a club, record keeping instructions, financial instructions, and much more.
Follow the steps on the page Get Your Quest Club Up and Running to get started once you have purchased your membership.
