Experience the World without Leaving the Valley!

Culture Quest

Culture Quest Summer Camp gives campers the opportunity explore the world without leaving the Temecula Valley!  Culture Quest Campers will experience a different region each week and a new country each day, learning about different cultures through food, art, activities, special guest presentations, and games.


Now in its second year, Culture Quest has proven to be an exciting summer camp addition to the Temecula Community Services Department’s offerings. Culture Quest Summer Camp is a program by the Temecula Valley Museum, and all camps are taught by a credentialed TVUSD elementary school teacher with over 10 years of teaching experience.  Campers must bring a sack lunch every day.  Snacks and water will be provided.


Register your children (ages 6 – 12) for one or multiple weeks for these rewarding and enriching experiences:
