Challenge Camp 2023
Challenge Camp 2023
Saint Vincent College
Multiple dates between June 18, 2023 and June 23, 2023
Event Banner
THIS EVENT IS 100% FREE!

The Challenge Program at Saint Vincent continues as the theme-based, fun-filled experience it has been these last 11 years! We will continue the "immersion experiences" for our overnight program. These opportunities allow you to get involved in a subject or pursuit that you enjoy or would like to explore! The day program offers a schedule that moves children through many age-appropriate versions of the overnight themes, offering a taste of immersive learning.


The day and overnight program are designed to provide you with a memorable, fun-filled experience that becomes something you can look forward to, year after year. We strive for hands-on, creative, and exploratory immersions, as well as entertainment opportunities. Come and make memories as well as good friends that last, with us at the Challenge Program immersions!


Young people entering 5th through 12th grade attending the overnight program will have the opportunity to choose two "immersion experiences" to participate in throughout the week... a three-hour morning and a three-hour afternoon experience that culminates with a final project, event, or challenge! Some immersions will be on campus, and some may be offered in the local area off-campus. Evenings will be full of planned fun and entertainment, and campers will stay overnight at Saint Vincent!


Children in the day program, 1st-4th grade, will enjoy a balance of hands-on and active learning experiences, arts and outdoor fun, as well as "daily immersion" time. During this time, children will enjoy an event led by a guest presenter, or one designed by the Challenge team. Look for a whole new level of fun! Preschool and Kindergarten will remain a half-day program ("Super Tots") with age-appropriate and fun-filled opportunities.
