Welcome to Summer Challenge!
Our program is tailored for 7th, 8th and 9th graders.
Like in our Summerkids program,
each day offers a mix of activities.
But Challenge activities are more sustained,
and, well, more challenging.
We do amazing, interesting crafts.
We hike, we climb, and we push the limits.
We spend time in the camp pool.
We also take several field trips to the beach (Challenge is the only Summerkids program that leaves our safe and secure campground.)
The Summer Challenge has a dedicated space on our campus,
complete with a Zip line. (It's rather fun!)
We have spaces for quieter activities, like Dungeons and Dragons here,
a covered gazebo where we do dissection lore (here) and lots of other cool activities,
and an outdoor space for all kids of games, many of which we invent.
The "Challengers," as we call our junior high campers,
always find time for dramatic play as well.
"Poseidon Adventure," our annual water war with the Summerkids 5th and 6th graders,
is a chance to come together as a team.
We have rock walls to conquer,
targets to hit,
and all kinds of things to race,
play, and imagine.
Challenge is a great way to experience...
all the fun of camp,
With a great group of counselors,
who are trained in how to make...
the junior high experience special.
We build things, make things...
and we seize all that camp has to offer.
