Goals of Salvation Army Summer Camps
The Salvation Army provides a great variety of camping experiences in widely different settings. It must be remembered, however, that all Salvation Army camping is an expression of deeply rooted spiritual motivation which supports all Salvation Army services. From the beginning, there has been a dual development in camping: the community service type of operation which character-building and good citizenship in a Christian atmosphere are emphasized, and the more intensely evangelical camp program for the Salvation Army. The overall purpose of all Salvation Army camping programs should be to serve the total person by accomplishing these goals of camp.
