Challenge Island is an award-winning STEAM enrichment program where kids work together in tribes to solve fun, hands-on “challenges” which teach them about STEAM fundamentals, cross curricular topics, plus important success skills like creativity, critical thinking, problem solving and much more.  Each of our summer camps are packed with activities and learning, and include lots of positive reinforcement and social interaction in a safe setting.  In addition, for students who sign up for both a morning and afternoon camp, they are welcome to bring a sack lunch and hang out with our STEAM-professional instructors for the lunch hour at no extra cost, where we’ll provide some additional activities, or some well-earned downtime as needed.  We look forward to seeing you this summer on Challenge Island!

Drum Circle Classes

Drum circles are not just about drumming. They are so much more. They are an effective tool for health and wellness and a breath of fresh air in our fragmented stressed out world. Research is pouring out pointing to Therapeutic Drum Circles as a powerful option for stress reduction and that is good news given that stress is the precursor for mental and physical illness. They are also a great tool in cooperative team-building and community. But, above all, it's a lot of fun! Anyone can participate. Instruments are provided, but you are more than welcome to bring your own.
