Grades 7-12

Overseen by dedicated staff focused on mentoring in a supportive setting, Army and Navy Academy’s Camp Challenge offers coeds a summer leadership experience that motivates and encourages involvement, accountability, skill development and personal growth. In addition to a progressive leadership curriculum recognized for its excellence by the United States Service Academies and many universities, new specialties this year include Aviation and Computer Science.

COVID-19 update: The impact of the global coronavirus pandemic has dramatically compromised the Academy’s ability to 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 decided to cancel Camp Challenge 2020. We hope to see you in 2021!
