This world is not a place for shallow Christians of soft character.
CHALLENGE is not a military camp, but it is a program based on the military fundamentals of teamwork, courage, selflessness, attention to detail and a sense of urgency. All of these fundamentals used in harmony with participating fathers and a strong staff team helps reinforce Biblical concepts and masculine strengths to the young men.
The students compete against other squads in obstacle courses, timed events, and problem-solving activities. Each student will learn to make their own shelter and live out of that shelter during the week. The staff will provide classroom as well as hands-on field training. All activities are outdoors and are taught in a safe manner by qualified instructors.
