Camp Fire Sunshine Central Florida | Light The Fire Within

Summer Challenge

Summer Challenge, for teens entering 6th-12th grade, consists of daily service-learning projects that will take you all over central and West Florida, helping out at many different agencies along the way! All projects are staffed at a 2 adult to 10 teen ratio with trained First Aid and CPR certified staff members. You will be asked to push yourself - both physically and mentally. You will make a difference, and be challenged to explore the world around you and how those discoveries impact your daily life.

Each day, we will tackle a different service project. Projects will vary from destination to destination:

        • Some will be collaborative efforts with other agencies or groups
        • Some will be outside and some will be inside
        • Some will be in Lakeland and others will take place outside the county.
        • ALL will be physically demanding, some will be mentally challenging. Be prepared to get hot, sweaty, and dirty!

For each project, you will be required to:

    • Wear your Challenge shirt ($12 each)
    • Wear closed-toe shoes
    • Bring a cold lunch
    • Give your cellphone to staff to hold for the day so you can engage with your peers without distraction (staff will have their cell phones on them at all time in case of emergency)

We will provide snacks and water, as well as all the necessary tools for all projects. Camp Fire will provide transportation as well. You WILL be expected to participate in all activities. There is no doubt that you will be challenged to push yourself; however, we will make time to reflect and celebrate our accomplishments each day.
