How to Set Up a Program

Each Challenge Program is designed especially to fit the needs of your group.

This makes it a learning experience rather than simply a fun outing. We can reserve facilities and in some cases order meals or snacks. We want your Challenge experience to be just right!

Please contact our Director to discuss your:

  • desired outcomes; what your group needs
  • group size
  • possible dates and times

Once your program is set up, you will need to complete some forms prior to the program.
