Afternoon Options

Groups can sign up for opportunities to minister through service and prayer in the afternoons. Prayer outreach is intercessory and evangelism based outreach utilizing prayer stations and prayer walking. Training is provided. Service projects mobilize groups to serve with their hands, muscles, and servant hearts. Projects include restoring parks and playgrounds, working with homeless shelters, partnering with other city organizations, and coming alongside of local churches as an extension into their communities. Pre-registration is required.

View Topics Offered in 2020

During scheduled rec times (afternoon and evenings), we will have open play in archery tag, gaga ball, ping-pong, and 9-square. Students are welcome to come and go as they please.

On Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday afternoons from 1 – 5 p.m., we will have organized tournaments in volleyball, ultimate frisbee, soccer, kickball, basketball, Mario Smash Brothers, and Mario Kart. Sign-up for daily tournaments will happen each day when students arrive at the recreation area. (Some of these games will also be available during evening open play.)

God is boldly moving throughout the whole earth to bring people of every tribe, language and nation to Himself (Revelation 7:9). Apex Experience is a 60-minute, hands-on experience that will engage students with what God is doing around the world.

At Challenge 2020, this experience will focus on Japan and will be available Tuesday through Friday.

Pre-registration is required. As churches register for Challenge on UltraCamp, they have the option of also registering for Apex Experience. If a church doesn’t register for Apex Experience when they initially register for Challenge, they can fill out our registration change form. (Churches can also register onsite as space allows.)

Feel free to take an afternoon to pull your group away for some intentional time together by enjoying area attractions. Go to www.visitKC.com for more visitors’ info.
