Edge Camp FAQ’s
Q: What kind of supervision will my junior-aged camper have?
Edge counselors are with their campers at all times not only to supervise but also to enhance your child’s camp experience by encouraging participation in many activities.
Q: Does my child need to bring any spending money?
No, but it sure is nice. Our snack shop is a great place to get a refreshing drink, ice cream, or a middle of the day snack and other items.
Q: What should my child do with prescribed medication?
Upon arrival, each camper will turn in any regularly prescribed medication to our Health Service Nurse. Each day, the camper will have the medicine readied by our nurse and be followed up on to make sure they have taken the dosage for that day.
Q: Does my child need to bring any bedding?
Each camper will need to bring their own pillow and bedding. Bring bedding that fits a twin mattress.
Q: What kind of clothes should my child bring?
Ladies/Girls Dress: Shorts should be below the fingertips when standing. Please no low necklines, narrow shoulder straps, tank tops, or skin-tight fashions. Please bring skirts or dresses to the knee for the evening services. For water activities, please wear dark shirts and shorts over swimwear. For girls-only swim times a one-piece swimsuit or a tankini that overlaps at the waist is acceptable.
Men/Boys Dress: Shorts should be below the fingertips when standing. Please bring long pants/jeans and collared shirts for the evening services. For water activities, please wear dark shirts and shorts/swim trunks. For boys-only swim times, swim trunks are acceptable.
The Edge reserves the right to ask anyone to change his or her outfit if, in the estimation of the staff, it does not comply with these standards.
Q: Is there someone to help my child if they get hurt or sick?
We have a nurse on campsite 24 hours a day. We are also equipped and capable of taking care of most minor injuries and illnesses. Be assured that we will contact you for any hospital visits.
Q: When will my child arrive home?
Summer camp ends Saturday morning after breakfast at 8:45 a.m.
Q: How can I communicate with my child while they are at camp?
In order to keep the campers from being distracted and to minimize the chance for stolen phones, we ask that all cell phones be turned in to their sponsors once they enter the camp property.
If you need to get in touch with your child, you can call The Edge office and request to speak with him or her. The office staff will coordinate a time that works with your schedule and the camp schedule for him/her to call home. Also, in the event of a medical emergency, your child would be allowed to call home.
