School's Out for Summer

Long hot summer days, a dip in the ocean, star-filled nights, camp fires, roasted marshmallows, cabin devotions, emblem work, seeing old friends, and making new ones. Expanding horizons and creating memories - That's what Summer Camp is all about.

For more than 100 years, The Salvation Army has recognized the value of camping. It has witnessed the difference it can make in people’s lives.

There are more than 50 Salvation Army Camps throughout the United States. Each one is unique to its geographical area, but they meet high standards in housing, nutrition and safety according to the Christian Camping Association or the American Camping Association. The Salvation Army Camps are attended by more than 100,000 people of all ages, races, and socioeconomic levels each year.

The camps are conducted by a competent staff of dedicated Christians who serve together throughout the summer and are committed to making the camping experience special for each individual.
