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.
If you do not live in a county with a Salvation Army Corps Community Center, click the links below for a camper application and an information packet. 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.
For those interested in going to SPORTS or KIDS camps, you have the opportunity to be involved with a study through Purdue University. They will be providing nutrition education to these camps as well as tracking how it works. Participation is optional, but there are some benefits to participating. Please print the forms below and send in with your registration packet if you would like to participate.
