This year's Camp Challenge is back to in person! We are excited to have our beloved Bandit 5K run/walk event and introduce our new 6-hour trail race!  Both races will take place on a clear trail around Camp- starting in our Cabin Circle, under the zip line, through the horse pasture, around Pearson Pond, by archery and mini golf, right by the entrance of the theater, and back to Cabin Circle- where the party is going on!  It's a beautiful course, and you can feel the Camp magic everywhere you go.

This fun, family-friendly event is not only a remarkable race, but offers a one-of-a-kind finish festival with Camp tours, activities, food, vendors, mini golf, archery and live entertainment! 

You can build a team or join as an individual, and every dollar you raise helps bring “a different kind of healing” in different ways to campers and their families.  All services are provided free of charge.
