EDGE Leader in Training Course
EDGE is a unique Leader in training 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.

EDGE Q & A
Q: How old do I have to be to take EDGE?
A: EDGE is designed for campers ages 15-17
Q: Is there sponsorship or subsidy?
A: Yes, we work with a couple different programs to ensure that finances are not going to impact whether or not a camper can attend camp. You can contact the Church office or Becky Clarke for more information.
Q: Is EDGE co-ed? How many spaces are available?
A: Yes EDGE is a co-ed program and we have a limit of 20 participants. Usually we only take up to 16 but due to the fact the we did not host EDGE last summer we wanted to do our best to accommodate all who are interested.

However, we understand that there are many different learning styles and abilities and we will work with the participants to support them throughout the course. If you have any concerns you can also contact Becky Clarke firstname.lastname@example.org.
