The GOOD: Coming Together to Make Camp a Family Affair

It’s not just individual youth and adults who benefit from the camp experience. The Salvation Army’s Family Camp is designed to provide an enjoyable, affordable week at camp for parents and guardians with children ages 16 and under.
Many families today face a number of stressors in day-to-day life, including economic hardship that makes it difficult to provide every-day necessities and even food on the table. With these constant obstacles, summer vacations are rarely an option.
Without the opportunity to take a break for physical and spiritual renewal, relationships within the family and with God can become increasingly strained. Family Camp provides families with the full camp experience, while providing structured classes where they learn more about themselves and renew their relationships with God and each other.
A typical day at family camp includes: Bible study along with a variety of age-specific classes, swimming, free time and family crafts. Guest entertainers and speakers provide additional fun and inspiration throughout the week. Evening programming provides campers the opportunity to participate in talent shows, evening worship, and game nights.
As with all The Salvation Army camps, campers are given three meals a day.
This year, The Salvation Army hosted more than 300 mothers, fathers, guardians, brothers, sisters, and cousins at Family Camp.
