Youth Camps & Recreation

A Place to Grow Some Memories

Camping frees youthful imaginations trapped in the concrete, noise, and 
pollution of our inner-cities.

For over 100 years, The Salvation Army has recognized the restorative power of nature. The Salvation Army operates 45 residential summer camps and hundreds of day camps across the country. Each year more than 185,000 children and senior citizens enjoy the fresh air, exercise and new friendships at these annual summer camp programs.

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 6-14.

To find out how to enroll your children, contact your local camp directly. You may use the camp locator map below to find contact information for any Salvation Army camp.
