Youth Camps & Recreation
The camping experience is more than just a pleasant vacation. Children learn new skills and self-reliance; trained counselors who understand their emotional needs and problems help them to mature. Camp activities include learning to swim, adventure and scouting camps, arts and crafts, music developments and sports. The Salvation Army offers affordable day and stay over camps for children ages 7-12.
For over 100 years, The Salvation Army has recognized the restorative power of nature. The Salvation Army operates Star Lake Camp, an overnight residential summer camp. Each year more than 1,500 children and senior citizens enjoy the fresh air, exercise and new friendships at Star Lake for annual summer camp programs.
