You don't have to be a member to register for camp. It is available to everyone regardless of location or income.

Usually, this week is used to take a recess for families because of the Independence Day holiday.

We understand that you love your children and want to be with them, however, we do not have parent volunteers for summer camp. Summer camp is a great time for children to create new relationships and show character. Parents are welcome to participate in other family activities and programs at the Dayton Kroc Center. If you have questions or concerns about this, contact us at (937) 528-5114 or email irene.diaz@use.salvationarmy.org.

Camp Kroc will provide daily breakfast, lunch, and snacks. Our food program follows the guidelines set forth by the USDA so campers receive healthy, well-balanced meals every day. The Dayton Kroc Center staff pride ourselves on the quality of our food service and we're confident meal times will be one of your child’s favorite activities.
