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.

How much does it cost to attend Hidden Falls Camp?

Thanks to the generosity of donors, we are able to subsidize the majority of the cost of camp. Most locations only charge $25 per camp per child. Some locations may charge more to cover transportation cost and/or meals on the way to camp.
