The Next Generation in Action

This summer, across the gardens, orchards and rolling meadows of the Crane Estate in Ipswich, along its white sand beaches and uninhabited islands, SummerQuest campers will discover sea creatures at the edge of the world, solve a mystery on Castle Hill, survive as shipwrecked castaways, and fall under a wizard’s spell that turns the Estate into a giant playground.
