Summer Staff Application Packet
The Edge Christian Camp exists both to introduce Jesus Christ to those who do not know him and to cultivate spiritual growth among those that do. Summer camp plays a vital role in fulfilling these goals.
Exciting games and activities are often what come to mind when you think about camp, but it also involves hard work, long hours, late nights, and personal challenges. However, having the opportunity to counsel a camper through a struggle in their life, or leading a child to Christ make all the seemingly difficult times worthwhile. these are the moments you will never forget!
Throughout the highs and lows of your camp experience, our desire at The Edge is that you will draw closer to Christ and learn to exemplify Him in every aspect of your work, social interactions, and personal life. Will you join us as we challenge kids to discover purpose, ignite potential, and grow in their knowledge of and passion for Christ?
