Edgemont Day Camp is run by the Edgemont Recreation Corporation (ERC), a private, non-profit, 501(c)3 organization established in 1970. The ERC’s budget is funded entirely by fees and tuition paid by participants in its after-school, sports, and summer camp programs. Post-incorporation, we expect ERC to remain an integral Edgemont organization and effectively function as the Village’s parks and recreation department, much as it does now.
Edgemont Day Camp campers currently swim at the pool at Anthony F. Veteran (AFV) pool. Click here to learn about swimming options for ERC campers if Edgemont incorporates. The EIC feasibility study assumes a $100,000 appropriation to ERC to cover the costs associated with securing access to a pool other than AFV. Such funds, and additional monies potentially available through the Village's projected budget surplus, could also be used for additional ERC staffing to enhance overall programming.
ERC basketball and soccer teams remain eligible to participate in Greenburgh Parks and Recreation leagues regardless of incorporated status. Similarly, Edgemont's incorporation will have no impact on ERC's provision of after-school programs in Edgemont School District facilities.
