Camp Challenge Cancellation

Unfortunately this year, the impact of the global coronavirus pandemic has dramatically compromised the Academy's ability to meet your expectations and provide a high-quality, low-risk summer program in an emotionally and physically safe environment. As a result, after extensive research, careful deliberation, and consideration of state-mandated restrictions, the Board of Trustees and the Academy Administrative team have decided to cancel Camp Challenge 2020. We hope to see you in 2021!
