The Challenge Program is a three year program for campers completing the 8th, 9th and 10th grades. It is designed to challenge the campers as individuals and as a group outside of the familiar Camp environment.
Every Tuesday is Challenge day for older Campers. Each Challenge group heads in a different direction to participate in different outdoor activities including hiking, biking, kayaking, overnight camping and community service. The intent of these activities is for the campers to help, rather than compete with each other.
Challenge I focuses on team building to foster trust and respect for each other. Challenge II and III focus more on group and physical challenges. The Challenge II and III summers culminate in a hiking and camping trip in New Hampshire.
With the oldest campers out of Camp for Challenge, younger campers have the entire Camp to themselves!
Tuesdays begin with choosing two morning activities. In the afternoon they will enjoy a special group activity. Past Tuesdays have included Backwards Day, Harry Potter Day and a Water Carnival. The day winds down with a younger camp Evening Forum with Sandy & Will followed by a special evening activity.
