At the Challenger Learning Center, campers are guaranteed focused attention with a ratio of at least one educator for every eight children.

    Camp counselors, as well as volunteers, are made up of teachers, students pursuing a degree in education, professionals with an extensive science background and/or individuals experienced with child care or best practices in education. Additionally, in order to maintain a secure atmosphere, all camp staff completes a Level 2 background check and all camp staff are diligent about checking identification of those dropping off/picking up children.
