When you have been to the top, it’s time to go to the Edge! This small-group primitive camping experience is a physical, social, and spiritual highlight for those who attend. Campers will stay in our rustic, three-sided Wilderness Camp shelters and learn outdoor living skills while also enjoying the best of our Challenge Course and regular returns to civilization at the main camp for showers and pool time.
Edge camps each have special adventure activities and/or off-site trips as part of their camp experience. Additional permission forms and packing lists will be provided by email to all campers registered for Edge camps.
On Friday morning, 1st Edge campers will enjoy a paddling excursion led by Lester Zook of WILD GUYde Adventures.
2nd Edge campers will spend Tuesday-Thursday at SHACC (Seneca High Adventure Christian Camp) in West Virginia. They will enjoy activities like paddling and caving, weather permitting.
The fees for these additional activities are included in the camp registration fee.
