How to register summer 2024

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. Every class at Challenge Camp is elective and as many of our courses are project based, you will see your child’s knowledge and interest grow throughout the session.
Join us this summer at lona University in New Rochelle. Challenge Campers select 5 classes to follow throughout the camp day, the two morning classes are 90 minutes (9:00 and 10:30) and the three afternoon classes are 60 minutes (1:00, 2:00, 3:00). Between the hours of 12- 1pm, campers will have a hot lunch provided by Chartwell Caterers and an outdoor recess period full of organized games and play. The students will follow their course selections for the entire 4 week or 3 week session.
We use camper’s CURRENT GRADE as of September 2023 for class selection. For example, students completing 4th grade in June should choose 4th grade level classes. Our program for students that will be entering Kindergarten in Fall 2024 is Discover, Imagine and Create.
