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.
See you next summer! New course information and registration will be available on February 1, 2014.
