PURPOSE OF SALVATION ARMY CAMPING

The purpose of Salvation Army camping is to serve the needs of campers; physical, social, and spiritual. For the physical needs, our aim is to help campers develop good health habits in cleanliness, proper rest, balanced diet, exercise, and care of the body. To meet social needs the camp provides an opportunity for each camper to contribute to and receive from a group living experience. The aim is to help campers make their own “right” decisions, stimulate creativity and foster independence. The fact that The Salvation Army is a religious organization makes it possible for its camping program to integrate concern for the spiritual dimension of life. We believe in God, His word and what it teaches, and a pattern of living exemplified by Jesus Christ. These purposes are achieved through carefully selected staff, well-planned programs, and the highest standards of health and safety.
