Kids to Camp

Children living in poverty have the enriching experience of attending summer camp at The Salvation Army's Camp Walter Johnson in Denton, North Carolina.

Best of all, our caring relationship with these children extends beyond the camp experience.

The Salvation Army helps prepare the camp kids for school with back-to-school supplies, clothes and educational grants to help with school activity fees during the fall.

The Salvation Army of the Midlands sent 80 children and youth to camp in the summer of 2014. The camp experience helps children develop good healthy habits in cleanliness, proper rest, diet and exercise. Children are given opportunities to swim, learn archery, ride on paddle and pontoon boats, canoe, play games, shoot BB guns, ride go-carts, create crafts, hike, fish, and learn about Jesus Christ. 

$40 will help provide 1 day and night at camp for a child.

$80 will help offer 2 days and nights of camp.

$120 can help provide 3 days and nights of life-changing experiences for a hurting child.

$200 can help provide for 5 days and nights of camp.

Checks can be mailed to P.O. Box 2786, Columbia, SC  29202.
