What is Edge?

Edge is a Catholic middle school youth ministry program that provides a safe, fun place for youth to find solid Catholic community, to get answers to their questions about faith, and, most importantly, to experience Jesus in a profound and personal way. This program is a space for middle school youth to freely engage with their faith without the expectations or requirements. The only thing we ask is that they come as they are – questions, attitude, and everything in between – and treat one another with Christian charity.


Join us at Hidden Lake for Edge Camp this year! To learn more about what is offered at Hidden Lake, visit the website.

The total cost of camp is $650/ person. When you register, we will ask for a $150 deposit (with the option to pay in full).

Registration is currently full.


Upcoming Events


Spring Series: Look Closer

Over the next several sessions, your son or daughter will learn about the seven sacraments of the Catholic Church. The title of each Edge Night is an object that allows people to see things in a new way, just as your child will be encouraged to do with the sacraments. The content provides a thorough introduction for those unfamiliar with the topic and abstract concepts that invite middle schoolers familiar with the basics to “look closer.”
