Challenge is a network of Catholic clubs and camps for girls in fifth- through 12th-grade who want to grow not only in their Catholic faith and friendship with Christ, but to make a difference in the world around them. It is designed to help adolescent girls go out into the world as strong and authentic role models where they can make a positive impact.

“Challenge has been hosting a camp at Potter’s Ranch in Union, KY, for the past seven years,” said Patty Steele, challenge coordinator for St. Margaret of York Catholic Church.

“College and high school girls volunteer a week of their summer to be team leaders for the fifth- to eighth-grade campers,” Steele said. “Some team leaders are from as far away as Denver, Atlanta and Mexico!”

Potter’s Ranch wilderness retreat facility exists to provide the most beneficial environment to develop our nation’s most valuable resources … our youth, adults and families. This year’s Challenge theme was “Life is a Constellation of Connections”.
