Youth Camps & recreation Programs

A place to grow some memories

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.

Families unable to send their children to expensive summer camps turn to The Salvation Army of Greater Rochester. They count on us to give their kids a fun, educational experience at little or no cost. Whether through the Kids Adventure Summer program or at a weeklong stay at the Empire State Division's Long Point Camp on Seneca Lake, our aim is to give children the tools they need to succeed.

The camping experience at Long Point 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 recreation programs and stay over camps for children ages 6-14.
