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.

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.

Beginning Piano Class

Have you ever wanted to play the piano? The Simply Music piano method will get you playing great sounding music from your very first lessons! Simply Music is a playing-based (as opposed to reading-based) method that puts the emphasis on playing. We start by finding the patterns and shapes found naturally in music. This gets you playing. Then we apply those same patterns and shapes to the "theory" of music. Come try it out for yourself!
