not just a soccer camp...You bring so much more than that!
Don't get me wrong, the coaching and curriculum is best in class too, but for me seeing my kids engage with your staff off the field was what really set this week apart. See you next summer!

All of Challenger’s camps are staffed by a team of international coaches who are selected and trained specifically to give your child the best possible camp experience. Our Core Camps is our most popular program, aimed at the younger player looking for a day camp experience in the summer months. We also offer Core+ Camps and Elite Camps. These are aimed at players looking for an alternative Challenger experience, or those who are ready to start an Elite Player Pathway.
All of Challenger’s camps are staffed by a team of international coaches who are selected and trained specifically to give your child the best possible camp experience. Each of our curriculums have been created to maximize your child’s contact with the ball and provide the maximum opportunity to learn. In addition to serious coaching, we weave in just the right amount of fun and cultural education to make this a magical week for your child.
Wherever financially viable, we would advise you to sign up as early as possible. Obviously most people would say this, but for us, given our international aspect of planning and logistics, it really helps us to have a clearer idea of how many registrations we will have at each site. Therefore we offer the following early sign up incentives:
- Early Bird Pricing
- Early Registration Replica Jersey (free minus s/h if you sign up early enough!)
- Guaranteed place on camp
Absolutely, we can create a camp specifically for your team. We will send you a team analysis sheet so that you can help us identify the strengths and areas of improvement to focus on for the team. Please contact your local Challenger Regional Director for more details.
