Camp to Belong Indiana strives to give foster children an unforgettable and meaningful experience. Meet the team that makes it happen!
Leah Edge is a graduate of Indiana University with a master’s degree in social work. Wanting to combine her passion for camp programming and social work, Leah discovered Camp To Belong. The mission of CTB spoke loudly to Leah as someone who has always been passionate about serving children and believing deeply in the power of human relationships. Leah developed a passion for camp while working for a nonprofit camp in her undergrad career where she served as a counselor, coordinator, Director, CIT and general advisor, and a mental health professional. Leah currently works for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana as a Mentoring Relationship Specialist, where she is furthering her knowledge on child development and the true power of positive human relationships.
Becky Moore retired from teaching in 2017 and now has the time to help bring Camp To Belong to Indiana, which she first dreamed of after seeing the founder, Lynn Price, on Oprah in the mid 1990’s. The Hoosier mother knew she was too busy then, but now she would like to provide this experience for others that she would have loved and benefited from as a child.
When her mother died in a car accident, she was fifth of seven children from ages seventeen to one. In different combinations, they lived with several relatives before ending up in foster care for nine years in Randolph County. Four years after graduating from Union City Community High School, Becky graduated from Indiana University Bloomington. Her Masters degree is from IUPUI.
She is the mother of three sons who went to Perry Meridian High School in Indianapolis and are also graduates and former student-athletes of Indiana University, Purdue University, and Rose-Hulman. Recently, Becky and her husband of over forty years have been enjoying their new roles as grandparents!
