St. Eds is offering a brand-new summer experience, our very own DAY CAMP! Not everyone has the opportunity to get away for a week of overnight camp, so we’re bringing the experience to you. Give your child one week where their only task is to be a kid and have a blast. We have a jam-packed week planned with summer fun, Biblical truth, high energy worship and incredible activities like 9 square in the air, water games, and plenty of things we guarantee you have never done before. What better way to end the summer than the first annual Camp Eddie!

Find all the details and registration below.

On these days, at 9 a.m., you may check your camper in at the curb if you would like. You are also welcome to come and check-in with their group leader

Check-Out:

You will need to come in a pick up your camper.
I.D. is needed every day to check out your camper.  Please make sure whoever picks up your camper (parents, grandparents, nanny, etc.)  is on the authorized pick up list during registration.

Why do you require I.D. to pick up campers every day?

We require I.D. everyday by every person picking up campers to insure each camper is picked up by an authorized person. Thank you for your understanding as we work to keep your campers safe.

What about allergies?

Please note these on the registration form. We will provide alternative snacks for campers that have food restrictions listed on the registration form. Parents are also asked to not pack peanut products in lunches.

What should my camper bring to camp each day?

Your campers will not need much during the day! Water bottles are welcome – please label, but we will provide water throughout the day. Whole Day Campers will need to bring a peanut free lunch. Please don’t let your camper bring anything that will distract from the day such as cell phones, electronics, gaming devices, etc. Plus there is no time for those things, we’ll be too busy!

What should my campers wear to camp?

We recommend that you send your camper in clothes that can get a little dirty and/or wet. Remember this is a summer camp environment, we will be outside for most of the day and there will be activities where your camper may get wet or dirty. Your camper should be in summer attire and no flip-flops, please wear running shoes! We will be outside so put on sunscreen before you come (we will also have more onsite).

Does Camp Eddie stay on St. Eds campus all day?

Yes! We will be indoors, outdoors and running all around church!

Can my Camper Bring Friends?

YES! They will need to fill out the registration form as well.

Do these friends need to be Catholic?

No. While we intend for this week to be an experience that enables young people to know and grow in their relationship with Jesus, there are not spiritual prerequisites. We will openly share Biblical truths from God’s Word every day at camp through teaching, worship, music, prayer and small groups. Every staff member is a follower of Christ and will do their best to model Jesus-like character while sharing their faith. But you do not have to have a church membership or church history to attend.  There will be no pressure on children to make any spiritual decisions through this week.

Do you run background checks on all staff?

Yes, all of our staff and volunteers will have background checks run on them.

Why are you doing this at the end of summer?

What better way to end summer than a week of camp?! Plus, it’s not too close to school starting yet which leaves time for a family vacation, a last hoorah and school supply shopping. It also gets us excited for Faith Formation starting back up in September!

If you have any other questions please contact Nicole Smalley Director of Faith Formation, Birth to Grade 8
