Testimonials:

“Challenge Island is the perfect solution for busy parents, or troop leaders, looking for additional educational opportunities for their children. After the kids are signed up, the program provides the information and supplies they’ll need to complete their projects. The program is a balance of education and fun.They’re learning so much, they probably don’t even realize how much they’re learning!”
-Melissa H., Troop Leader & Girl Scout Mom, NC

“Challenge Island offers the most girl-friendly STEM curriculum I have ever seen. This – in combination with the program’s strong focus on 21st century skills – makes Challenge Island a perfect match for our organizational mission.  The feedback from the girls and troop leaders about Challenge Island has been amazing.”
