Policies and Procedures

You must complete your camper’s health profile and required forms on our Online Portal. Challenge Camp has partnered with CampDoc.com as part of our continuous efforts to provide the best possible care to our campers and staff.

CampDoc.com offers online registration and an electronic health record system for camps.  Once you sign up for a CampDoc.com account, you will be able to register your camper.

You will receive a confirmation email, and the camp office will process your registration and send you an invoice for your selection. You will then receive additional information about how to complete your camper’s health profile and any camp forms. All payments will be made directly to Challenge Camp prior to the start of camp.

Students select their workshops based on their current grade level as of September 2023. Early registration is recommended to ensure student’s first choice of workshops. The Director reserves the right to cancel any workshop if the enrollment is insufficient. In the event of cancellation, the child will be permitted to transfer to another course. All course descriptions and instructors are subject to change without notification.

No material fees will be returned for class changes after June 1.

Complimentary camp T-shirts will be distributed on Picture Day each session.

The camp is not responsible for personal property of the campers. There will be no reimbursement for missing possessions.


All Challenge campers must submit a complete health history, medical release form during registration. Challenge has a full time nurse on staff to deal with emergencies and administer any medications your child may require.

Lunch Menu

Challenge Camp uses the award winning Chartwell Caterers as our food service provider. A hot lunch and afternoon snack is included with your camper’s registration. A Kosher lunch catered by Prime Time in New Rochelle will be available for families requiring the option for their camper.

If your child has a food allergy(s) or concerns please let us know and our Chef will ensure that a meal consistent with your child’s dietary restrictions is available. Challenge Camp is a Nut and Seed Free camp, and can accommodate most dietary requirements. Our caterer will work directly with concerned parents to ensure we can meet your camper’s needs.
