Teen Camp Challenge

Teen Camp Challenge
Sponsored by IPRA's Teen Committee located within the Recreation (REC) Section, the 8th Annual Teen Camp Challenge is an exciting and rewarding competition that brings together 5th - 8th graders from the Chicago Metropolitan and surrounding areas. Teen groups from different park districts will compete in 6 team-building events that include a mix of strategy skills, relays, and trivia knowledge; all designed for teens at all ability levels! Teams earn points at each event, and the team with the most cumulative points will be awarded a trophy and crowned 2019 Teen Camp Challenge Champions. Additionally, a Spirit Stick will be awarded to the team with the best attitude and team spirit. Pack a lunch and bring your park district team(s) to the beautiful Ty Warner Park in Westmont for a day full of teen skill-building, exercise, and fun!

Participants should wear shirts, shorts, socks, and gym shoes; NO skirts, flip flops, bathing suits, sandals, jewelry, or revealing clothing. This is an outside event in open fields, so campers are encouraged to wear sunscreen, hats, and sunglasses. 

Participation Waiver: Team leaders will be provided with a participation waiver via email after completing the on-line registration. Each team member must complete a participation waiver prior to competing in the event. Completed forms can be submitted at check-in the morning of the event.

Check-In: We ask that your group arrives no later than 9:45 am so we may begin promptly at 10:00 am. Upon arrival, counselors should report to the check-in table to confirm participation numbers (for teams), submit completed participation waivers, and get their assigned starting location.
