About Us

We are a one-of-a-kind enrichment program on the cutting edge of S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) and 21st Century Learning!

Challenge Island is a cross-curricular STEAM enrichment program! We take children on a unique ''island'' adventure where they work in collaborative STEAM Teams to take on high-level thinking challenges using only everyday materials and their innovation & creativity. Each Challenge Island challenge appeals to children's natural curiosity and sparks their inherent imagination.

While having a ton of fun, they also increase their soft skills in communication, collaboration, critical and creative thinking, flexibility, sociability, initiative, leadership, grit, and perseverance through difficulty. At Challenge Island, we are dedicated to ensuring a brighter future for our kids and our communities by helping you prepare your child to succeed in the 21st century and beyond. We offer enrichment programs & events for In-School Field Trips, After School Enrichment, Homeschool Enrichment, Camps, Preschool, Kids Night Out!, Family Fun Events, and Birthday Parties. We are a one stop shop for schools to provide programming which fulfills requirements for Title 1, Title 4, ESSER 3, Family Engagement, McKinney-Vento, and Indian Education/MEP.

We also work with adults! Corporate Team Building, Corporate Engagement Events, and Senior Generation Events!
