Why Challenge Camps?

 

Challenge Camps are unique experiences for girls to grow in their Catholic faith and make lasting friendships. We have over 20 camps across the US and Canada. Challenge Camps have been present for the past 15 years with thousands of campers participating each year. Conquest – our brother program- also offers over 20 camps for boys each summer.

A Day in the Life of a Challenge Camper

 

At camp girls ages 10-18 will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities. They will enjoy prayer and spiritual growth through participation in Mass and Confession. Sports, games, workshops, team dynamics, exciting night activities, swimming and fun in the sun, are typical Challenge camp activities. To find out what activities are offered at specific camps, visit the local camp websites or download the local camp flyer. Our camp staff is made up of a wonderful team of teen camp counselors and skilled adult volunteers.

The 2017 Challenge Summer Camp theme is Connect!

 
4565
 

This year’s camp theme is Connect- connect with God, the Church, yourself and others! Life is a constellation of connections and relationships. At camp, every day we will focus on one of these important connections & relationships, delving deeper in how to be a Christian in the world today who prays, is confident, kind to others and who loves the Church.
