Camp Walter Johnson
Changing Lives One Summer at a Time
Continuing a long-standing Salvation Army service, and a long history of Salvation Army camping in the Carolinas, Camp Walter Johnson was opened in Denton, NC in 1974. Each summer, youth from many Salvation Army units all over the Carolinas come to camp, situated on High Rock Lake, for a week that can literally change their lives.
Camp Walter Johnson offers many activities for campers to enjoy:
- High-Ropes Challenge Course
- Rock Climbing Wall
- Paddle Boats
- Pontoon Boats
- Outdoor & Indoor Sport
- Large Outdoor Swimming Pool
- Children's Activity Pool
CWJ's summer staff, under the leadership of Divisional Youth Secretary, is well-trained and works very hard to help campers grow and develop socially and spiritually; all while having fun with new friends from all across the region. Camps generally last one week and attendance will vary from week to week. Each summer, boys, girls and coed camps are scheduled beginning mid-June and lasting through August.
Camp Walter Johnson also offers adult and seniors camps. These typically occur in May before the height of the camping season (and the end of the school year).
