What is Challenge & Champions?
We believe that you can't be a leader if you aren't a learner. Challenge & Champions is a summer opportunity of stimulating experiences for rising 6th-8th grade students on the Emory University campus. C&C runs over a three-week period and supports learning and leadership through a combination of academics, athletics, and the arts. Our vision is that all middle-grades youth can work toward increased: love of learning, academic and athletic skills, self-confidence, health and well being, sense of belonging in a learning environment, cultural competency in a global society, and comfort with taking on leadership. C&C is carefully designed with best practices and research findings and develops a community with deep and lasting ties. It challenges and supports all students who attend. Students take away many skills for the upcoming school year and make new friends for a lifetime. C&C helps students envision their future and gives them experiences and ways to work toward those goals.
C&C 2013 runs from Monday, June 17th through Friday, July 5th (except July 4th). Orientation is on Sunday, June 16th from 1:00PM - 4:00PM.
