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!

Self Defense and Safety Camp for Kids

Kids, have fun and learn to be safe at the same time!  Learn real self-defense and practice on an instructor wearing a padded suit.  You’ll also learn fire safety, how to use 911, stranger awareness, drug resistance, gun accident prevention and more.  Cartoons, art, physical practice and classroom games are just some of the fun ways that you will learn in this camp.

Parents, nothing is more important to us than our children. This camp is more than just a week of fun, it is an investment into a lifetime of safety.  Kids will need daily lunch, snacks, water bottle, bag for activities sheets and handouts.  Teaching child safety since 1990, we have the experience that empowers kids with the knowledge, skills and mindset that they need to stay safe.  This class is taught by Live Safe Academy.
