Summer Camps on The EDGE


 In partnership with the Freedom Aquatic & Fitness Center on the Science & Technology Campus in Manassas, The EDGE offers camps focused around fun experiential learning. With the exception of Rock Climbing and Natural Adventures Camp all activities take place on the campus. Our challenge course is located adjacent to The Piedmont Trail; a 1.2 mile meandering, walking/running trail shaded by acres of a hardwood forest.  The EDGE follows the philosophy of ‘Challenge by Choice’ in all of our programming.  

NATURE CAMP  . . . participants will feel at home on Mason’s 10 acres of green space with a trail system winding through forest and wetland. Youth find wildlife, take on challenges, learn about nature, how to walk silently in the woods and get their hands dirty.  AGE 10 – 13

JUNIOR NATURE CAMP  . . . offers a half day program for campers to experience and explore with a full sensory immersion into the natural world.  Full day campers will spend the morning session outdoors with the Nature Camp expert. At 1:00 pm campers will continue their day with swimming, recreation games and crafts!   AGE 6 – 9

LEADING EDGE CAMP  . . .  leadership opportunities focus on helping youth learn to present vision, establish goals, motivate those around them, and make key decisions. Participants experience how all team roles and functions must sync together for effective decision making and achievement. AGE 11– 15

NATURAL ADVENTURES  . . . campers will experience climbing our 50 foot Alpine Tower, riding on our Giant Swing, or trying to figure out the way to the top of our Pamper Pole. Our activities take participants away from their everyday setting and into an environment of unknown outcomes and surprising results.  AGE 11– 15

ROCK CLIMBING CAMP  . . .  this camp introduces campers to the sport. They will enhance their decision making and problem solving skills through the physical and mental challenges of climbing.  AGE 10 – 15
