3. We would like to travel with another group from our area. Do you know who else is coming?
We would be happy to put you in contact with any parishes in your area that may be coming to camp.
4. When does camp begin and end?
Please arrive to camp between 1:00pm – 3:00pm in order to register and get your group settled before the mandatory chaperone’s meeting at 4:00pm. Please call when you are about an hour away. We want to have the summer staff ready to greet your bus. If you are going to be late, it is imperative that you let the camps know! Camp ends with lunch around 1:00pm on the last day.
5. Can we come early and stay late?
If your travel plans require that you come early or stay late, we can accommodate your group. You must pre-register for this service in order to us to accommodate you.
6. What are the roles of people at summer camp?
Group Leader: This is the person organizing the trip and the main group contact throughout the registration process and leading up to your arrival at camp. The group leader must be an adult, age 21 or older, who is actually attending camp with the group.
Adult Participant: To attend as an adult chaperone, you must be at least 21 years old. While at camp, the adult chaperones are to participant as any camper would. They will be the role models of openness to God throughout every adventure. Sometimes the adventure may not be comfortable for the adults but their willingness to try it out will give your teens hope for trustworthy and steady relationship. Along with having fun, they will be responsible for the actions and participation of your teens. Throughout the day, they will need to keep the youth on task to the adventure at hand. At night you will be sleeping in the same cabin as the teens, therefore, we expect that you will help us with enforcing the curfew and lights out rule. They will need to be present and attentive during all sessions, because they may be leading a small group afterward. So, when deciding on which adults to bring to camp, please inform them of their responsibilities at camp and make sure they are prepared.
Youth: Participants at summer camp. These include incoming 6th graders through graduating 8th graders for Edge. For Life Teen it includes incoming freshmen through graduating seniors. As you can see incoming freshmen can go to either Edge or Life Teen camp.
Summer Staff: Summer staffers are college students who have applied and have been accepted to serve you and your teens at camp this summer. The Summer Staff will help run the sessions in the evenings, coordinate the daily activities and games, get to know your teens, provide a listening ear and prayerful spirit. The Summer Staff does not fill the role of a chaperone for your group.
Adult Ratios: In order to provide the best experience for our campers, we recommend a one to six adult/teen ratio. Remember, if you have male and female teens, you must also have male and female adult participants.
