Participants can either sign up for one or the other, or they can do both.  If a participant signs up for both, we will hang out with the kids from 12pm-1pm so that they can stay all day (9am-4pm) at no extra charge. If a participant signs up for both, please bring a sack lunch.

 

Challenge Island is an award-winning STEAM enrichment program where kids work together in tribes to solve fun, hands-on “challenges” which teach them about STEAM fundamentals, cross curricular topics, plus important success skills like creativity, critical thinking, problem solving and much more.  Each of our summer camps are packed with activities and learning, and include lots of positive reinforcement and social interaction in a safe setting.  In addition, for students who sign up for both a morning and afternoon camp, they are welcome to bring a sack lunch and hang out with our STEAM-professional instructors for the lunch hour at no extra cost, where we’ll provide some additional activities, or some well-earned downtime as needed.  We look forward to seeing you this summer on Challenge Island!
