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!”
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”.
