In Camp Challenge, older students explore a variety of intensive mental and physical recreational challenges within a supportive environment. Students will participate in a wide variety of activities both on and off campus. These may include camping, canoeing, water-skiing, rock climbing, caving, tandem biking, and other challenging activities.

In addition to the physical challenges provided in this program, emphasis is placed on developing self-reliance and self-confidence, contributing to overall maturity and growth. All participants will be provided social opportunities and guidance in appropriate interactions with peers and adults, within the context of developing a sense of teamwork and team accomplishment. All participants must have the physical and social ability to participate in this intense and demanding program.

We highly encourage families to attend this final program. We promise you a very inspiring event that you won’t want to miss. The final activities will begin at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, June 15th.
