What difference can a week away from home make in the life of a child?
Each summer the Harrisonburg/Rockingham Salvation Army provides an opportunity for 35 to 50 the opportunity to spend time at a summer camp run by The Salvation Army in Richardsville, Virginia. A gift of $38 to the camp fund will enable a young person to spend a night at camp.
That one week spent away from the problems of home can make a difference, providing them with a transformative experience, helping them to dream dreams that are bigger and more glorious that what their home life produces. These enlarged dreams that can take a child from the pathway of poverty onto a more productive one.
