EDGE Leader in Training Course
EDGE is a unique Leader in training and Discipleship course here at Calvary Temple Camp. The goal of the program is to equip youth ages 15-17 with leadership skills, biblical foundations, and an understanding of serving and camp ministry. Many EDGE participants graduate from this program to become CTCamp staff. We strive to help youth develop confidence to lead not only at camp but in their every day.
