How to Register

Challenge Camp is a unique program for bright, curious children. The Challenge Camp advantage is that you and your child customize a program of selections based on your child’s interests and the students follow their course selections for an entire session. As many of our courses are project based, you will see your child’s knowledge and interest grow throughout the session. Students attending the Morning Workshops select both a 9:00 and a 10:30 offering for their current grade level. Students attending the Afternoon Challenge will select either enrichment options or sports offerings for their age group for the each of the 3 periods. Full day students make selections for all five course periods. Between the hours of 12 – 1pm, full day campers will have a hot lunch provided by Sage Dining Services and an outdoor recess period full of organized games and play. Please select courses for your child based on their September 2016 grade level. New students must provide a letter by a teacher or administrator from the school district in which the child is currently enrolled with the registration form certifying that the child has been identified as gifted, talented and/or an accelerated learner. The charts below for the Morning Workshops and Afternoon Challenge serve as a convenient reference to assist in your selection process.
