In addition to after-school programs, we also offer Summer Camps.
Sponsored by generous donations from the community, our summer camps are designed to enrich all who participate, giving children & teens the opportunity to make new friends while learning fun things and experiencing new adventures in a safe, caring atmosphere.
Salvation Army summer camps offer children safe and educational alternatives to summer down-time and hanging out in the neighborhood. Summer camps provide children with programs that curb summer learning loss, healthy meals, fellowship with peers, and recreational activities.
For youth who attend Camp Happyland, The Salvation Army’s weeklong overnight camp in rural Richardsville, VA, this is often their first experience in a quiet, rural setting filled with new experiences such as hiking, fishing, ropes courses, canoeing, archery and more.
