Challenge Island Mini Camp

Mini-Camp with Challenge Island: STEAM Enrichment for Kids

Ages 4 – 6
August 17  – August 21
9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Fees: Members $300 per session; Non-members $350 per session

Keep your children engaged this summer with fresh and fun activities from the experts of Challenge Island! Challenge Island is where engineering meets imagination, offering hands-on project-based learning where participants cultivate 21st century skills.  In this mini-camp customized for kids age 4 to 6, the children work in tribes (teams) to tackle STEAM challenges using everyday materials. The party-like atmosphere will be felt throughout each day and crescendos at the end when tribes proudly present their creations at the closing tribal council.

JCC Mini-Camp with Challenge Island is led by Stacey Piken and Jill Schantz.  Stacey and Jill are experienced educators with multiple masters degrees. They are co-owners of Challenge Island – Central and Northern Westchester.  We are thrilled they are part of our JCC team!
