Student leaders meet together eight times during the school year, on average one day each month (typically on the 4th Tuesday). The times may vary depending on the activity; however, most Challenge Days will begin at 8:00 a.m. and end at 2:00 p.m. Students will be "Activity Excused" from school by their School Advisor. If students attend college classes during the day, it is their responsibility to speak with their instructors to be excused.
Lunch and snacks are provided for the students on Challenge Days. Students must be prepared, and may be required to provide their own transportation to activities. Students will discuss transportation logistics with their school advisor. In the case a bus is scheduled, students will be informed where to meet the bus and what time it will leave.
