Islands are the mainstay of Challenge Island with creative problem solving at each turn
Islands are the mainstay of Challenge Island with creative problem solving at each turn. Each session of Challenge Island takes place on a unique thematic island and consists of 8 or more action-packed afterschool classes – or destinations, as we like to call them. A class might “take place”, for example, at TIME MACHINE ISLAND’s Pinball Wizard Way, RAINFOREST ISLAND’S Anaconda Squeeze or MYTHOLOGY ISLAND’S Poseidon’s Seas.
We also offer quick “island getaways” consisting of fewer destinations in the form of in-school field trips or workshops, parties and other events.Register Now!
The Tribe is at the heart of every Challenge Island experience. Far more than just a group of kids, our Challenge Island tribes function like families sharing ideas, hopes and mutual goals. They learn to negotiate, compromise and count on one another. They build bonds, friendships, tolerance and acceptance as they pool their combined strengths and resources to create a far richer product than any one of them could ever achieve individually.
Our Laws of Challenge Island provide children with a framework for how to interact with others positively, productively and compassionately. These critical social skills are not formally taught in school, but they are formally taught on Challenge Island.Register Now!
From the camp color-war inspired face paint to the bandanas to the beat of the island drum, the spirit of Challenge Island is absolutely unmistakable. A sense of anticipation and adventure fills the air as kids enter new worlds of adventure and imagination. There’s an ever-present buzz of creativity and excitement as tribes of children work together to take on the thematic challenge of the day.
The magic is felt throughout every lesson and crescendos at the end when each tribe proudly presents their creation at the closing tribal council.Register Now!
