We are still accepting camp registrations in the hopes of offering our full camp schedule this summer, but if Camp Challenge determines camp dates should need to be adjusted or cancelled, registrants can request a full refund! Our regular cancellation policy still applies if camp dates are not adjusted or cancelled.

Camp Challenge hires Emily Ferrell as Assistant Director!

Camp Challenge has been seeking an Assistant Director since late last year.  There were many good candidates that showed interest in the position and we are thankful that so many people are passionate about Camp Challenge and outdoor ministry.

We are excited to announce that Emily Ferrell accepted the offer to join the Camp Challenge staff.  Emily will be focusing on taking our events to the next level. (summer camp and beyond!)

Please join us in welcoming Emily to the Camp Challenge team.


Hello friends! 

My name is Emily Ferrell and I am so excited to be hired in the role of Assistant Director at Camp Challenge! I am currently in my final semester of college at Mid-America Christian University. I will be graduating in May with a Bachelor’s Degree in Ministry Leadership with a Multidisciplinary degree in English. I have a passion for people and communication, and I can’t wait to use my skills to advance the Kingdom of God at Camp Challenge! 

I was a camper at Camp Challenge for twelve years, and during that time I also served as a volunteer counselor. I can confidently say that I would not be who I am today without the ministry of camp. I am honored to be able to serve at camp in a full-time role and give back to a place that has impacted me so greatly. 

A little bit about me is that I love reading, writing, and watching movies (basically anything that involves good stories and conversations)! I am a coffee enthusiast. I will drink gas station coffee, $7 lattes, and everything in between! On a typical day off you can find me in a hammock, playing games, or hanging out with friends! I love adventure, and I am so glad that God is continuing my adventure at Camp Challenge!
