Challenger Camp

Ages 11-13

The Challenger experience is one you will never forget! A day in Challengers starts with breakfast and before you know it, you’re sailing down the Zipline or out over the lake on the Giant Swing!  Take a break for lunch and next thing you know, you’re taking things to new a new level on the High Ropes Challenge Course!

What sets Challengers apart from the other programs at Camp is the unprecedented mix of guaranteed fun and choice of activities.  Nobody’s going to miss out on the action at activities like Archery Tag, and everyone will get the chance to cruise the waves on our fleet of SUPs (Stand-Up-Paddleboards). Meanwhile, once you find out the activities you enjoy most, why not go back and challenge yourself again?  You’ll do it all, and go back for seconds on the best parts!

The beauty of Challengers is going deeper while making things bigger and better along the way.  Campers are challenged to push themselves to new heights in fun, faith and friendships.  Fun, obviously, is never in short supply at Camp Arnes!  Meanwhile, epic times in the Wigwam singing along with the band, and engaging with our speakers, bring deeper meaning to Challengers.  All along the way lifelong friendships are formed with Camp staff and fellow campers.  Are you up to the Challenge?
