Summer just wouldn’t be the same without the excitement and adventure of Camp Challenge programs. For more than a decade, kids throughout the East Valley have come together with our trained, licensed staff for a summer full of water fun, games, arts and crafts, sports and outdoor discovery. 

Each week is designed to entice kids with their favorite activities, engage them in weekly challenges and themes, and entertain them with new buddies, dedicated staff and silly surprises scattered throughout summer. Adventure-seeking campers build character and new friendships through our high-quality specialty camp.

Adventure awaits your camper this summer. Discover the nurturing environment of Camp Challenge: where campers learn, grow and play.
