Summer camp is a ministry of The Salvation Army, combining physical activity with emotional care and spiritual growth. For many of the children who attend camp, this is an experience they never dreamed would be available to them. For others, it’s a chance to get away from difficult situations at home – a time and place to just be a kid again.

Once completed, please return the forms to your county’s Salvation Army Service Extension Representative. A list of Indiana’s Service Extension Representatives can be found HERE.
