“Challenge Island has a magic formula. My 10 year old son has attended many other camps and has never been as excited about any of them as he was about his Challenge Island camp. I don’t know how they do it but I do know their formula works, like nothing I’ve ever seen before.”
-Marcus S., Challenge Island Wizardry Camp, Parent
Our STEAMtastic Challenge Island Camps are the perfect destination for your child during summer vacation and other school breaks! Built around pop culture themes kids love, our Challenge Island camps feel like action-packed vacations in their own right.
- Our wide array of trademark camp themes include Wizardry Camp, Mindcraft Camp, American Girls and Dolls Camp, Super Hero Camp, Space Wars Camp, Emoji Camp and many more!
- Campers work together with tribes full of friends who share their passions to create entire worlds built around our exciting pop culture themes.
- Kids love the positively party-like atmosphere of Challenge Island camps so much that they never seem to notice the critical STEAM/STEM and 21st Century Skills that are tightly woven into each and every Challenge Island Camp adventure.
Children come back again and again to experience the creative magic of Challenge Island camps.
