Can I bring my infant/child? Is there childcare?

Both the dynamics of Challenge and its pace do not make a good fit for having infants or young children in attendance, even at a limited capacity, and we do not provide childcare. Therefore, we respectively ask all groups to adhere to the Challenge age minimum (students entering 6th grade).

Can you accommodate food allergies and dietary restrictions?

All of our meals are nut– and shellfish-free. We also provide gluten-free and vegan meal plans upon request. (In the registration process, youth leaders must choose a meal plan for each individual.)

If our church is not in the EFCA, can we attend Challenge?

Yes, absolutely!

Is there a student-to-leader ratio we need to follow?

Challenge requires a 10:1 student to leader ratio, per gender. For example, if you have four female students and six male students coming, you would need one leader of each gender.

Are there logos or photos I can use to promote Challenge?

You can download a variety of Challenge media elements—including logos, promotional photos, and graphics—from the Resources section of our website.
